  • 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

  • I would totally recommend Dave’s services
    testimonial for Dave Cartee (2019)


    Absolutely amazing!! From the first phone call I had with Dave, till the last handshake, Dave was nothing but professional. Dave felt like a friend from the first moment I spoke to him. Dave is very personable and easy to talk to. I would totally recommend Dave’s services to any of my friends without a doubt. It only took Dave a few minutes to find my ring and he would have probably found it sooner if it wasn’t for the crushed beer can in my front yard haha. Dave, I appreciate your service and hopefully I don’t have to hire you again but will if I lose my ring again. Thank you so much and my wife also appreciates you lol

  • I would totally recommend anyone to contact James r
    testimonial for James Curley (2019)

    James Curley is definitely the gold standard in this business and provides the highest level of customer satisfaction. A little backstory; I lost my keys during the winter storm that commenced on January 28th, 2019 which was equipped with a number of security fobs required in my professional career so it was crucial that I find them as soon as possible. James was so professional at assessing the situation and was totally invested in my cause and quest to retrieve my lost keys. As the snow melted during the last couple of days, my keys surfaced in a snowbank right on my property just like James speculated. No stones left unturned in James’s deductive abilities and essentially provided me exceptional advice to find them. Kudos to you James and I would totally recommend anyone to contact James regarding their lost metallic valuables! 10/10.

  • We will never forget what you did for us
    testimonial for Matthew Fry (2019)


    Matt, thank you for bringing such joy to my mother and me. We will never forget what you did for us in finding my father’s ring. We are sure he is smiling from above, indeed.

    Also, we’re delighted that you’re helping the wonderful kids at Shriners’ Hospital. Wishing you many blessings in your continued work!
