  • 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

  • We cannot thank her enough, she is a real pro...
    testimonial for Kati Schmidt (2021)

    My son called pretty distraught because he had no idea what to do. Sure, he had another set but why take a chance. Human nature would force the average person to change the locks, especially with a 5 yrs. old child at home.Consequently, I also metal detect once a week and knew about the ringfinders website through a friend who is a member of the site out of Pismo Beach. I reassured him told him to wait by the phone and I’ll get back to him. I went on ringfinders site, put in the zip and Kati’s name popped up, I clicked on it and there she was. I communicated with Kati, responding immediately, she was so easy to deal with and I had no question in my mind she would find them. Eugene had pinned the site where he thought he dropped the keys. To answer everyone’s question why I didn’t take my metal detector and go myself; for her fee of $25 between the Verrazano toll, the Jersey tolls, gas, traffic and aggravation-that’s why. Plus, Kati is packing a much more sophisticated piece of equipment than my little machine and she is probably much better at it and having retired from the phone company and hearing 1000 cycle tone in my ear every day for 18 years I could be on top of it and wouldn’t know. Anyway, Eugene text me on Thursday ecstatic “She found the keys!”, I had no doubt Kati would. She was very modest about her skills when I called to thank her but I was, for Eugene’s sake, very thankful for her expertise. We cannot thank her enough, she is a real pro, and a modest one at that.

  • Del is a great person and delights in others happiness. I would highly recommend him and his services.
    testimonial for Del Witters (2021)


    I am forever grateful that Del found my ring. He is so nice to work with and very caring. As he said, he found it in my neighbors yard adjacent to where I was working. I would not have expanded my search to that area as I was not directly working there. Once he found it, he held it up and grinned and I remembered I was tossing pine cones out of my way while working. Del is a great person and delights in others happiness. I would highly recommend him and his services.

  • There are good people in the world. Thank you for coming out and finding my ring!
    testimonial for Woodrow Engle (2021)


    I lost my wedding ring at a Memorial Day gathering. At 10pm, I found Woodrow through RingFinders. At 7am, he met me at the park and by 8:30am he had found it - a needle in the haystack. There are good people in the world. Thank you for coming out and finding my ring!
