  • 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

  • Thanks Mark you saved the day!


    Mark came out the same day we called and found not one but two rings. One my wife’s and second mine I lost over a year ago. He worked quickly and covered a lot of ground. We were over the moon with excitement. Thanks Mark you saved the day! Two rings... still can’t believe it:)

  • Best Christmas Present I Ever Gave
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2018)


    Best Christmas Present I Ever Gave

    After some quick research on the internet for metal detectors I decided to hire Chris Turner to help me find my father’s 56 year old wedding ring which had been lost for about 3 months. I knew he lost it on his property in North Vancouver that is currently under construction but it is also in a forest. I thought it would make an unreal Christmas gift and hearing that there are experts in this field gave me hope that we might actually find it.

    Three days before Christmas I called Chris and asked for his help. He was so responsive and keen to help and to hear the story. We met on the Saturday morning and we walked around the property and talked about how my Dad lost the ring. He showed me on his metal detector how it was picking up a constant stream of nails and he explained how frustrating that would have been for me if I had rented a metal detector and tried to find it myself.

    The weather was awful and cold that day so he told me that I could take off and come back in an hour as that is how long it will take him to cover the property. So I did. When I returned, an hour later, he was on the phone with a magazine from New York talking about ring finding. He hung up and then started explaining to me about all the nails and how he would have to go back to his place and grab a giant magnet to pull up some of the nails so it wouldn’t be so hard to find the ring. This was his way of fooling me and then he presented me with the ring. I naturally started yelling in excitement and then hugged him. I was so excited. Chris said he found it about half an hour ago then we walked to the part of the property where he found it.

    I wrapped up the ring for my Dad for his Christmas present and he was so surprised and shocked that it had been found and that I even had the idea to look for it. Chris made a YouTube video of the experience, including my reaction and I showed that to my parents to explain how it all happened. This will be a Christmas to remember for a very long time thanks to Chris!

    I had a good feeling about Chris finding the ring the second I met him but I was still shocked and amazed he found it so quickly. As my brother put it “this guy is a legend!”. More than being a legend he is an unbelievably kind man that gets as much out of doing his job as the people he helps. I hope I never lose another ring but if I do he will be the first person I call.

    Thank you again and again and again Chris!

  • Thanks a million to Steve
    testimonial for Steve Smith (2018)


    I gave my ring to my wife when going surfing in Malibu on Christmas Day, in the afternoon.

    When asking her to give me back the ring, she realized she lost in in the sand as it slipped from her finger.

    We searched in the sand for 30 minutes but were unable to find it. We finally drove back home later in the afternoon.

    As searching on Internet for a solution, I ended up finding the Ringfinders website and emailing Steve. He answered super quickly and we met on the beach in Malibu around 9.30PM.

    It only took him 10 minutes to find my ring. I was really happy with such a happy ending ! Thanks a million to Steve for this, a great, helpful and friendly professional.

    Thank you so much Curtis Cox it’s great to know there are people like that in this world, that are willing to help with knowledge and equipment to find lost treasure.

    On Friday I was at south ponto beach in Carlsbad and I took off my ring before I went surfing and left it in my beach chair cup holder and we folded up the chair and it must of fallen out into the sand.

    I didn’t realize till that Saturday that I lost it at the beach.Saturday evening I went to the beach after I got off work and spent an hour and half sifting through sand with no luck!

    Someone mentioned to me they saw a business card for The Ringfinders and I google searched and came up with Curtis Cox’s number.He immediately answered my call and the next morning,

    Before the sun even rose (6am) he showed up and went to work! 40 minutes later he found my ring in the sand!

    I made it to work as I started at 7:30 A.M.!
