  • 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

    testimonial for Steve Smith (2018)



    On July 4th I lost my wedding band in the sand on Hermosa Beach. I reached out to Steve and within an hour he was there searching with his magic metal detector and FOUND it in less than 10 minutes (I had been searching for an hour). Steve is a great guy and a life saver. I highly recommend him for finding any lost metal item.

  • It is because of you I have my rings on my finger again
    testimonial for Mike Baker (2018)


    Hi Mike!

    I can’t thank you enough for your kindness and generosity! I couldn’t believe how quickly you dropped everything to come meet us, the amount of time you put into the search, and your perseverance against the biting bugs. It is because of you I have my rings on my finger again. They are of great sentimental meaning and it wouldn’t have been the same if our insurance had replaced them. Thank you again and again and again!

    My warmest gratitude,


  • A long drive, but a great outcome!
    testimonial for Max Langeveld (2018)


    On Tuesday, July 3rd, at about 4:50 p.m., I got a call from Max asking if I could assist him with a search for a lady’s ring up in Hesperia. Max explained that he received a call from the husband who sounded a bit frantic, saying his wife couldn’t find her wedding rings (a 3-piece set). He explained that his wife was not feeling good on Saturday and had taken some Nyquil and then proceeded to change their baby daughter. That’s the last time she remembers having her rings.

    So I met Max at Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga and we carpooled up to the house. We were met by a young couple, Kyle and Jennifer. Jennifer explained basically the same as her husband had said and added that since Saturday, they have torn the house apart looking for them, even cutting open the bottom cover on their sofa. They had family members and friends come over to help search. We found out later that Kyle went out and bought a metal detector to help with the search, but he couldn’t quite understand how to work it.

    We walked through the house with Jennifer, retracing her steps from Saturday. Max asked if the trash was still available and it was. Thinking Jennifer may have accidently dropped her rings when she was changing the baby, Max asked if the baby’s soiled diapers were bagged “like a sausage” in a plastic bag (Max knew this term from being a grandparent. I’m a grandparent but couldn’t remember from 10 years back!). So knowing the house was thoroughly checked, Max chose to start with the trash. They had 2 trash cans, one with just cut grass. So Max tipped over the trash and pulled the “sausage” bag out. We proceeded to go over each individual “present” with metal detector and pinpointer. Nothing. Max grabbed the shovel laying there and started taking a shovel full of trash and putting it in a wheelbarrow that was there and we started going through the papers, containers, boxes, etc., transferring it to the grass can. We were almost to the bottom of the can, still not finding them, when suddenly Max spotted one of the outer narrow bands in with the styrofoam container with what appeared to be breakfast leftovers in the wheelbarrow. As he picked it up, I noticed the main ring nearby, and with the moving of more breakfast, Max found the 3rd and final band. Needless to say Jennifer was elated and Kyle was relieved! A long drive, but a great outcome!
