  • 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 Jim for saving my ring and my vacation!
    testimonial for Jim Wren (2019)


    I’m so thankful that I found Jim’s information and gave him a call. He was willing to come right away to my surprise and within 30 minutes of arriving he did what I thought would be impossible-finding a ring on a beach that was covered in water just hours before!

    Thank you Jim for saving my ring and my vacation!

  • Thank you Donald for saving the day!
    testimonial for Donald OReilly (2019)


    My husband and I went for a fun day at the beach with the kids. While I went to play with my daughter, I removed the rings and placed them on my lap and forgot about them. When I got up off the chair, they were gone! It wasn’t until the next day that i realized that i didn’t have my rings! After crying for a while my husband contacted Donald OReilly of TheRingFinders. We explained where we had been at the beach. Donald went out to the area and within 15 minutes had located both rings. Thank you Donald for saving the day!

  • I would recommend him to anyone living or traveling in Puerto Rico!! Thank you Donald, you are my savior!!
    testimonial for Donald OReilly (2019)


    I was at a bachelorette party in Puerto Rico and we decided to take a boat trip out to La Parguera one day. We made our way over to a part in the water where it was about 4 feet deep and the current was strong. I was trying to hold onto some trees along the bank in order to steady myself, but I slipped on a rock and my hand scrapped on a tree. Both of my wedding rings came right off my finger and fell in the water! I was devastated and immediately starting freaking out. My friends and I tried searching the area, we got some goggles and had nearby people help us, but it was no use. The sand was too murky and rocky, and there were too many other people kicking up sand. Plus the current was strong and I had no idea where the rings could have fallen. Eventually we had to give up and I left that area in tears, sure that I would never see my wedding rings again.

    The next day, I decided to do a quick google search to see if there were any metal detection experts in the area. That’s how I found Donald! I called him immediately and instantly got my hope back. He was so kind on the phone and assured me he could find my rings. He knew the exact area where I was, even from a short description over the phone. He told me he would go out the next morning and start searching for me! I wasn’t expecting him to work so quickly! He drove all the way from San Juan to Lajas, which is a couple hours drive.

    Sure enough, the next morning I got a text that he was already in the area and would begin searching. About 3-4 hours later, he sent me a photo of my rings! He had found both of them!!! I broke down in tears of joy. He told me the rings were carried a bit further from where I slipped, due to the current. And they were buried quite a bit in the sand, so I would have never found them without Donald. Luckily, I was still in Puerto Rico and arranged to meet him to pick up the rings. We were staying in Aguadilla, and he was kind enough to drive all the way there to meet me and give me my rings in person.

    Donald is just an amazing and kind person, and a very talented metal detection expert. He genuinely cares about reuniting people with their lost items. He showed me a kindness that I don’t often see in people anymore, and I’m so grateful I found him. I would recommend him to anyone living or traveling in Puerto Rico!! Thank you Donald, you are my savior!!

  • I’m on cloud 9 and will hope to never loose it again!
    testimonial for Del Witters (2019)



    Thank you so much, all is so surreal to me! I had so many emotions come over me, I felt like we just did our vows again. Like I just caught my first steelhead my hands was shaking!

    Prior to you coming over to show us what you found. Elke and I had our little talk that if it was not found that all would be okay, that it was not meant to be. I felt assurance and didn’t expect you to find it! I’m on cloud 9 and will hope to never loose it again!

    The best thing about all this I feel whole and complete again to show I’m a proud married wife!

    I absolutely love how all fell into place. Especially the bald Eagle was confirmation of being in right place right people and time.

    Looking forward to dialing you in the mighty Deschutes river! Water Is life Alysia, Littleleaf.
