  • 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

  • He really saved the day ! I’m so glad I found TheRingFinders !
    testimonial for Mike Wingard (2020)


    I’m not sure how to post a testimonial for Mike Wingard out of Mobile Alabama . But I lost my wedding ring on thanksgiving day on our farm , we had to leave for a trip so I wasn’t able to find it . I got in touch with Mike and we couldn’t be happier ! He really saved the day ! I’m so glad I found TheRingFinders !

  • Thank you again, Chris! You have no idea what it means to have my ring back.
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2020)


    I emailed Chris in a panic late Saturday night to help me find my engagement ring that fell off while playing in the snow with my son. He emailed me back right away telling me to call him ASAP. He made the drive (3 hour round trip) Sunday morning and after searching for just a few minutes he found it! But he had to fake me out first, asking more questions and telling me more about the equipment, then he just casually asked me how it felt to see my ring again and held it up. It took a second for me to register what I was looking at, I was so shocked! I definitely didn’t expect to see my ring again.

    Thank you again, Chris! You have no idea what it means to have my ring back.

  • Luke is now our hero and I will recommend him to anyone...
    testimonial for Luke Schlining (2020)


    So grateful that Luke was able to find my wedding ring in such a short period of time! My wife and I were worried that I would have to purchase a new ring to replace the one I lost. We both didn’t want to do that because it wouldn’t have had the same sentimental value. Anyways Luke is now our hero and I will recommend him to anyone that needs help finding a lost item.

  • I can’t say enough nice things about Don...
    testimonial for Don Marshall (2020)


    I can’t say enough nice things about Don. I was up most of the night at the hospital with our daughter letting my wife get some sleep, so losing my ring was the last thing I needed at that moment. Spent the better part of two hours in a sleep-deprived panic looking around in the deep snow before giving up and getting in touch with Don. He got back to me right away and told me he’d meet me as soon as he could. He was totally unflappable, just calmly persevered until we’d checked every possible place it could be until we found it.

    I’m incredibly relieved and endlessly grateful. It was a tough few days already with our daughter being sick and I didn’t need one more thing to worry about. Thankfully, along with finding the ring, I also got to take my wife and daughter home from the hospital. Everything is as it should be again.

    Don is a gem, and he seemed so happy and excited to have been able to help. Thanks again, Don!
