  • 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,

  • Now here's a guy who knows how to find lost jewelry. With over 170 found items...
    testimonial for Stan Ross (2017)


    Now here's a guy who knows how to find lost jewelry. With over 170 found items I knew he was the guy I wanted to get into contact with after I unfortunately lost my wedding ring on the beach. This ring was also my grandfathers wedding ring so it was irreplaceable to my family and I.

    A few hours had passed before I realized that the ring was missing. I had taken the ring off before going out into the water and placed it into a pocket of our beach chair. As we were leaving I closed up the beach chair and went home, not realizing I had just dropped the ring in the sand. When I figured out what I had done several hours later I got onto the internet and found Stan Ross.

    He was on the ring finders website and had over 170 successful finds. When I contacted Stan he was very enthusiastic about helping me. He dropped what he was doing and went straight to the beach where I had lost the ring. I sent Stan a picture of my wife and I at the beach that day and a google map pin point of the location to give him an idea of where we were.

    I met Stan at the beach 30 minutes later around 7:00pm. As I walked down the steps to the beach I was wondering why Stan was so far away from the location i had described my wife and I as being that day. It was simply because Stan had already found the ring and was looking around the beach before I had arrived. Stan found the ring in less than the time in took me to get the beach that evening.

    And for his assistance and service he quoted his price as," I just enjoy doing this for people". I gave Stan a tip for his work and he walked off into the night. As he left he stated he was glad he could help and was glad I had my ring back.

    So to Stan I say thank you! From my wife and I, my family thank you!

    You were the right man to call and I will keep your number in my phone to use in the future and give to anyone needing help in finding a lost item that he may be able to help.

  • If you live in NC and lose a ring or anything else valuable/sentimental to you then do yourself a favor and call Michael…
    testimonial for Michael Gaskin (2017)


    I was with my son all day at a soccer complex in Raleigh for a tournament and with time to kill between games we practiced on an open field. We spanned a lot of ground and at one point I noticed my wedding band was no longer on my finger. I completely panicked. I scoured the field and tried covering all the ground where I hoped I could find the ring. I even downloaded a mobile metal detector app thinking that would help me easily find the ring (it was a joke).

    Unfortunately it didn’t help at all and I ended up leaving the field very sad believing the ring was gone for good. Another parent from my son’s team recommended and that’s when I reached out to Michael Gaskin the next morning. He contacted me immediately and said he could meet me at the field that afternoon. When I got to the field Michael was already there and to my surprise pulled the ring from his pocket as he had already recovered it! I can’t tell you how happy I was. Not only had Michael found my ring but he also explained to me the process and walked me right to where it had been showing me how impossible it would’ve been to find it on my own. He had contacted the field management ahead of time for permission to check the area, showed me the map printouts he used, and explained all of the equipment he used during the search. Admittedly I was not sure what to expect and it ended up being one of the most professional services I had experienced…and he is a damn nice guy on top of it!

    So instead of being depressed and looking for a replacement (which would’ve been impossible considering what the ring means to me) I have it back on my finger.

    If you live in NC and lose a ring or anything else valuable/sentimental to you then do yourself a favor and call Michael…he will absolutely turn your day around!

    Thanks again Michael!!!

  • Steve, thank you for putting a huge smile on my (and my wife's) face. You're clearly a passionate and talented guy
    testimonial for Steve Smith (2017)


    I'm incredibly grateful for Steve's help last night. I figured I'd leave a voicemail and hear back from him the next business day, being that it was 8:30 at night, but he picked up my call and said he'd meet me at the volleyball court in 30 minutes. Seriously? And the search process was equally impressive – it took him all of about 10 minutes to find my wedding ring, which could've been just about anywhere on/off the court. Steve, thank you for putting a huge smile on my (and my wife's) face. You're clearly a passionate and talented guy, and I hope many others will read this post, give you a call, and experience the same excitement and relief that I did last night. Thank you again, Steve. God bless!

  • I highly recommend Mike
    testimonial for Mike McInroe (2017)


    We called Mike after a disastrous experience with another ring finder person. He was super supportive and very professional. My wife and I lost her wedding and engagement ring in the middle of our ceremony at Lake Baldwin. After three weeks of waiting around for another guy, Mike finally was the one to help us find our ring. We contacted him after our first ring guy was rude and unhelpful. Mike kept in contact with us and letting us know that he’d was willing to go try and look for our ring if we’d like him. After not hearing from the first guy for 2 weeks, my wife and I decided to give Mike a try. He showed up to Lake Baldwin and my wife showed him where we lost our ring. My wife tried to pay Mike for his trip to meet us and he told her that she didn’t need to pay him until he found her ring. Two days later, he called and FOUND THE RING. We never thought we would see her ring again. He was so professional and helpful that night we went to pick up the ring. He told us how he got it and showed us the plans that he had drawn up to accomplish it. We told him about our experience with the first guy and he was apologetic for our experience. I highly recommend Mike, not only did he find the ring, he helped us turned our entire experience with ring finders around. Thank you Mike! - Cecil and Nicole

  • Lost Wedding Ring Found – Brookfield, WI

    This lost-and-now-found wedding band will go down in my book of smiles as ‘The Valentine’s Ring.’ I say this because, the ring’s owner, Todd, became engaged to Suzie on a very happy Valentine’s Day in 2010. Subsequently, exactly seven years later, on Valentine’s Day, 2017, Todd’s love-token emerged from the icy darkness of a Wisconsin […]
