  • You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners.
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2013)


    I believe in angels and one knocked on my door on Saturday, August 3, 2013. For the 5 previous days, my family and I had frantically searched inside my house and in the garden for my cherished engagement ring.

    I received this beautiful ring from my husband on December 23, 1967 and have worn it for 45 and a half years.My beloved husband passed away 13 months ago and my wedding rings and 25th anniversary band became an enormous comfort to me. I started wearing the rings 24/7 and even had the diamonds checked for loose stones.

    My worst fear was that I would lose the solitaire diamond from the engagement ring. Imagine my horror when on Sunday evening, July 28th 2013, I discovered the engagement ring missing from my finger after watering my front and back garden. After searching and searching for my ring to no avail, I found Chris Turner and TheRingFinders on my computer. He came to my rescue on Saturday August 3, 2013 and located my precious ring in my back yard in less than 5 minutes.

    I was completely astounded as my son-in-law and I had searched the area where Chris found it. Apparently, I had stepped on the ring and it was embedded in the dirt under the grass. I would never have found it on my own. I was overwhelmed by Chris' professionalism, experience, kindness and caring. To me that ring was irreplaceable.

    Thank you so much, Chris. You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners. I highly recommend Chris as I thought my beautiful ring was gone forever. It meant the world to me and am so thankful for Chris' help. I will never forget the sight of my ring in his hand as he presented it to me.

    With my grateful thanks and highest regards,

    Wendy Porter

    testimonial for Richard Archer (2020)

I honestly feel as though you turned my husband’s depression into pure joy! It’s truly a miracle and a blessing from God. I can’t thank you enough.

    Sincerely, Stacy Stevens

  • If you are missing something of great value or importance to you please reach out to Brian - he is wonderful...
    testimonial for Brian Rudolph (2020)


    “I contacted Brian late on a Friday evening after I had lost my family heirloom diamond engagement ring earlier that afternoon. After searching and searching where I thought it slipped off my finger I put up signs and realized I needed a professional. Brian got back to me the next morning and was extremely kind and responsive. We spoke over the phone and he gathered additional information and then (since I had put up signs and searched already) we made a plan to meet the very next evening (Sunday).

    I met Brian in the first spot where I thought I had lost it. He searched the parking lot as well as my car, bag, jacket - basically anywhere it could have gone missing. I was pretty certain it slipped off my finger and I knew the approximate timeframe, I just didn't know where it happened. Once again, Brian was so kind and incredibly thorough during the whole process. He went with me to two more locations where I thought it could have been. He kept talking me through everything and was so positive as we looked for the ring.

    By the end of the search, we still did not find it. I was pretty sad but Brian was as well. It was clear that he cares very much and really wants to help people find their missing items. We had a good talk and he again helped me think through all my steps that day. As we did I mentioned that I had put away some laundry in a bag that day before I went out. He instructed me to thoroughly search the laundry and my luggage (I was away that weekend) and he told me that he believed in his heart I would still find it. I wasn't sure myself but his optimism was infectious.

    Soon after I got home I let my husband know that I didn't find the ring but I had to search the laundry. An hour later I searched the bag item by item very carefully just like I saw Brian do as he searched my coat and bag. I got to the very middle of the pile and SURPRISE - there was my ring sitting right there!!! It had slipped off while I was gathering laundry and I had not realize for about two hours while I ran errands. I called Brian and he was so happy. I absolutely credit Brian with playing a major role in finding the ring and believe that if i had not reached out to him I may not have found it. Most likely the laundry would have been thrown in the machine and who knows what may have happened to the ring from there. Thank you so much Brian for all your help!

    If you are missing something of great value or importance to you please reach out to Brian - he is wonderful and he will help you to the best of his abilities to get it back!”

  • He really knows his stuff and we would recommend him a million times over. THANK YOU JAMES!!!!
    testimonial for James Badgett (2020)


    There are no words for the gratitude we feel for what James Badgett did for our family today. James, you are truly a godsend!!

    James came out to help my husband and I find my diamond engagement/wedding ring this morning (on a Saturday!) after we contacted him late last night thanks to He arrived right on time and was ready to brave a cold, rainy day to search a grassy hillside near our home. I had some idea where the ring was but was not totally certain. My stomach was turning with the desperation and fear I felt that my ring would never be found. James asked all the right questions to pinpoint the location. He was very patient, kind, and FOUND THE RING in under an hour!!! He didn’t even mind the chattering of our two boys and their questions of him, nor did he judge our situation in any way. If anything, he reassured us with every step. I cannot begin to describe the relief I felt when James found my ring. I was sobbing and completely fell to the ground. My husband and I are SO, SO, SO grateful for James and his incredible generosity. He really knows his stuff and we would recommend him a million times over. THANK YOU JAMES!!!!
