  • 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

  • Again John Snyder thank you so very much!
    testimonial for John Snyder (2021)


    My name is Charlene Bass and on May 4, 2021 I lost my wedding ring in my back yard! I decided to turn my giant compost container (mostly dry leaves) in my back yard, while both of my kids took a nap. I only took the ring off so I wouldn't scratch my son when I had to lotion his legs. I stuffed it in my bra and forgot all about it trying to hurry and do something while they napped. After taking a shower I realized I could not find it. I searced the house with no avail. I knew it had to be in be in the compost I had just flipped. Frantically I spent half a day looking through a giant pile of leaves and food remnants until the mosquitoes get too thick and my kids are telling me it's time to go inside. I also lost another silver ring trying to recreate where I could have lost the first one. My kids (2 and 4) are kicking the leaves around and running through them. We have two drainage ditches that boarder the property. I was terrified of the coming rainy season and that I would never find it. If it was not in the compost it was unfortunately in the ditch. My husband is currently on a state side deployment, so I have no one to help me look for it. He didn't seem too upset that I lost it given he lost his for a few months before we found it in the car a few years ago.

    I find ringfinders that night on a whim. I didn't even know this group existed and am so unbelievably grateful that you all do. Now I tell everyone about this amazing group of people, especially John Snyder. I decided to contact someone if I couldn't find my ring the next day. I spend another hour or so the next day juggling kids and searching. After feeling hopeless I contact John Snyder and he responded immediately and was so eager to help. He headed right home to get his equipment. He got to my house and in no time starting searching for the lost ring. He showed up with with a big smile on his face and was so excited to find the ring. His enthusiasm and positivity made me feel so hopeful that I would soon have my ring back on my finger by the end of the day. He accidentally brought the same side gloves and still decided to look even though it would mean possibly digging through food remnants in the compost. He showed a deep concern when finding a lost tent stake and asked if the kids go barefoot in the yard. Finally after looking in my other compost bin he finds it! I cannot express the joy I feel that he found the ring. I immediately start crying. He never asked for anything except for me to share my story. Being an amazing person he is he even offered to find the other silver ring which I had also lost, but him finding my wedding ring was all that I needed. He said later after finding out that both my husband and I are also military, "That makes the ring recovery even more special, recovering a ring for a Veteran Sister and Brother." Again John Snyder thank you so very much!
