  • 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

  • Thank you Joe! You are awesome!
    testimonial for Joe Au-Franz (2017)


    Thank you Joe! You are awesome! I still cannot believe you found my ring. I thought it would be lost forever on the beach or to Mother Ocean. I don’t know what I expected when I arranged to meet you on the beach to search, but I felt I had to at least try. And you actually did it, you found my wedding ring! I still cannot believe it, especially after all the places the ring could have been. Thank you for what you do. Until now I had no idea that people like you existed. Joe’s not just a guy with a metal detector, he cares and has pretty good skills

  • What a great experience! Thanks again Chris!
    testimonial for Chris Turner (2017)

    Item started out as a last resort before I went shopping for a replacement ring, it came up on google when I tried to get ahold of a metal detector.

    I figured why not, especially since I had partially accepted that it was gone and that I'd never see my ring again.

    Chris offered to drive out from Vancouver to Chilliwack to try to find it on nothing more than my word that it was buried somewhere in the yard- I really had no idea! I felt bad but he was oddly eager for the challenge lol!

    He showed up right away and proceeded to search for approximately 10 seconds or so before finding it! Unbelievable!!

    I went from feeling bad for what would likely be a complete waste of his time to having my ring held in my face within seconds! You can't write this stuff!! My wife and I still can't believe it.

    I felt as if Chris really doesn't do this for the money, and that his satisfaction is gained by his ability to bring people from being distraught to making their day as he made mine. Please take my word for it and at least give him a shot, the outcome was mind blowing.

    What a great experience! Thanks again Chris!


  • My pendant was found by Steve Smith, the best ring and pendant finder hands down.
    testimonial for Steve Smith (2017)



    My pendant was found by Steve Smith, the best ring and pendant finder hands down.

    I had this necklace that was given to me in the 80’s it was really 80’s looking and I wanted a more contemporary piece.

    I was telling my girlfriend that I wanted it redone.

    I happened to be going to India towards the end of last year with her and she told me she had the finest Jeweler in Delhi.

    I carried that necklace with me to India and met with the jeweller.

    I sat for about an hour designing this and felt so proud of the out come. I cherished it.

    Flash forward to today I was doing our Christmas pictures in Palos Verdes on the rocks at the beach no less.

    I came home and noticed it was gone.

    I had a knot in my stomach, I was so upset.

    Ran back the next day and found the chain ,but no pendant.

    Then I got frantic it had to be there it just had to.

    I could not find it anywhere.

    Went home went online and found Steve.

    He was just awesome. Asking me questions and he was so calm.

    We met the next day and I was so impressed with his gadgets he set up and he went to town.

    He’s thorough and precise.

    It helped that I guided him to where I was sitting. I was in 2 locations.

    I was pacing and digging a hole to China while he was diligently scanning.

    And then he held it up and said is this it ?

    I shrieked in happiness and ran to hug and kiss him.

    He found it he found it, he found it.

    Today was my lucky day:)

    Would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

    He is absolutely the best, hands down.

    Warmest Regards


    Happiest customer

  • Mark was so pleasant to work with and so efficient – I just can’t say enough.
    testimonial for Mark Spence (2017)


    I can breathe again. This being our 50thwedding anniversary year all things related to our years together are precious to us. Having lost my ring while mowing the grass seemed like such a simple thing that should be easy to remedy with a quick search. That quick search ran into 3 hours with at least 8 friends and neighbors helping and plenty of rakes and blowers with no luck. We hand checked every bag of leaves and grass twice and had many eyes look over every inch of the area where it came off – nothing.

    A friend had used Mark in the past. He rearranged his schedule, so he could get to us the same day we called and was able to find the ring within 30 minutes – buried sideways into the soft ground. I can breathe again. Mark was so pleasant to work with and so efficient – I just can’t say enough. Highly recommend him. I’d also recommend you call early in your search it will eliminate a lot of worry and upset .
