  • From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for finding my lost 1980 NFL Conference Championship ring


    Dear Dave,

    From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for finding my lost 1980 NFL Conference Championship ring with your metal detector.

    I was reasonably sure I lost the ring while doing spring clean-up in the yard. The day I called you in desperation for help, you came over immediately to try and find the ring. Although the weather was miserably cold and pouring rain, you nonetheless scanned the yard for hours trying to find it. I was obviously disappointed when you could not find it, however you said you would like to return in warmer weather to try again.

    I was not absolutely sure I lost the ring in the yard, and for weeks looked everywhere but unfortunately it did not turn up. By summertime I had completely given up hope and contacted the NFL League office to inquire about replacing it (custom molds for all Super Bowl rings are kept on file).

    Then out of the blue in August you called me again, offering (at no fee) to come back for another search. On your second search, to my unbelievable surprise, YOU FOUND THE RING! under a landscaping bush. I was so thrilled when you told me, I actually broke down and cried with emotion/thankfulness.

    I cannot thank you enough for your dedication, honesty, integrity and persistence, and whole heartedly recommend anyone contact you for help locating lost items.

    You are truly and Angel of God!

  • I am so so grateful to Chris and The Ring Finders!


    I am so so grateful to Chris and The Ring Finders! It was so nice to have a happy ending to a really bad week.

    I lost my rings in the snow and then shortly after that had a pretty bad car accident. When I found The Ring Finders I was a little sceptical but thought, "this is probably my best shot at getting my rings back".

    After talking to Chris on the phone and then meeting him I was totally put at ease and felt confident that he could find my rings and sure enough he did.

    This man is such a kind hearted, easy going, truly good person. He has no fee and works purely on a rewards basis, which to me showed me that what he really loves is helping people.

    The world needs more kind people like Chris who are passionate about bringing joy to people's lives!

    If you ever lose something close to your heart, call The Ring Finders - they will do everything they can to help you find it, and in my experience they're pretty good at what they do! Thank you Chris!

  • You truly are an angel and others like you that reunite sentimental and valuable jewellery with their distraught owners.


    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

  • John and Curtis are the best at what they do. I am so grateful that there are people in the world like them.


    About 6 months ago, my wife Rosie and I were out at Encinitas beach. We were with a group of friends and spent much of the day playing Frisbee on the beach and diving into the ocean waves. I had worn my wedding ring surfing previously with no issue at all and didn’t think to take it off when getting into the water this time.

    After a few hours at the beach, I suddenly noticed my wedding ring was gone. I had no idea at what point in time I had lost it, but figured it must have slipped off while diving into the waves. Both my wife and I were devastated because we had only been married for about 9 months and I hadn’t even made it a year before losing my ring.

    I ended up finding John and Curtis through a local craigslist ad the next day when attempting to see if anyone had posted about a found ring at Encinitas beach. Initially I was very surprised to find that the Ringfinders website even existed and that there were people like John and Curtis who would go out of their way to help others. I gave John a call and he was very responsive and eager to help me out.

    I met up with him later that day at low tide to go search for the ring and show him where I think I may have lost it. We searched for a few hours scanning the beach up and down but with no luck. At that point, I was fairly convinced that I had lost the ring while out in deep water and that it would never be retrieved.

    John reassured me that him and his partner Curtis would continue looking and notify me if they found a ring that met the description of mine. A few weeks went by and John had sent me the occasional text reminding me that he had not forgotten about my ring and was still on the hunt. I was grateful to hear from him and know that he had not forgotten.

    About two months after losing my ring, my wife and I graduated from physical therapy school and moved back home to Seattle, WA. I had already bought a cheaper tungsten replacement ring that was not the same as my original white gold ring, but would suffice. I figured that my original wedding ring was deep beneath the sand in the Pacific Ocean and would never be found again.

    Then, 6 months after losing my ring, I received a text message from Curtis on Thanksgiving morning. He had been out with his metal detector earlier that morning and found a ring that matched the description of mine.

    He sent me a picture and it looked similar to mine but was discolored with a yellow hue from being in saltwater for so long. I was still not convinced the ring was mine because it had been so long since I lost it, but Curtis told me he had found it at the same beach. I sent him a picture of the receipt indicating the size of the ring and the width of the band.

    He checked the size and width and it was a match. He immediately mailed the ring to me so that I could try it on and confirm that it was mine. Sure enough, two days later, I received the ring in the mail and it was indeed mine. It fit perfectly. My wife and I were both astounded. I took it in to the jeweler the next day and had it re-plated and it now looks just as good as it did when I originally purchased it.

    I could not believe that John and Curtis were able to find my ring 6 months after losing it. What an amazing surprise on Thanksgiving. The even more unbelievable part of the story is that John and Curtis had kept my contact information and remembered me. Six months had gone by and they were still out there searching for my ring.

    I’m sure it takes a lot of effort to keep a log of where people have lost rings, the ring descriptions, and contact information, but John and Curtis are the best at what they do. I am so grateful that there are people in the world like them. They are willing to take time out of their days and go the extra mile to put a smile on other people’s faces.

    I cannot thank them enough for what they’ve done or how happy they have made my wife and I. We now have an amazing story to share with all our friends and family and I am finally reunited with my original wedding ring that my wife and I exchanged our vows with. And I owe it all to John and Curtis and their genuine passion for helping others.

    It’s comforting to know that there are people like them in the world. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

    Thank you both so much for all your help, you guys are amazing.

    Sincerely, Connor and Rosie Naccarato

  • We are so grateful for Stanley and for The Ring Finders!


    I just wanted to pass this along and let people know that a service like this exists. The people of the ring finders will go search for your lost article of jewelry with a medal detector and get it back to you if it's there where you describe.

    My fiancé and I had lost a gold ring at the beach and thought it was a gonner. We were both so upset because it has such sentimental value being his grandmothers ring.

    We waited two weeks to call because we didn't know about it and when we did we didn't believe it would be possible to find it even with a medal detector.

    We couldn't believe that when we finally did call, Stanley found it within an hour!

    He went out just as it was about to get dark and lightly rain and found it for us! We asked how much his services are and he said that they do it for gratuity and only want to help people out because at The Ring Finders they understand that rings have so much more value then what the gold is worth.

    We are so grateful for Stanley and for The Ring Finders!
