  • 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

  • A big thank you to Mark Gruel. You saved the day!
    testimonial for Mark Greul (2018)


    A big thank you to Mark Gruel. You saved the day! My husband Tom and I were visiting Naples Florida to attend my niece’s wedding.

    The day after, we decided to go to the beach , and my ring simply falls off. Friends of ours, about 10 of us, were searching the area I was standing in for about 30 minutes.

    Then, one of my friends found Mark Gruel. From the moment I told him where I thought my ring fell, he found my ring within 20 seconds… No exaggeration!

    Thank you so much again Mark,

  • Thank you again, Steve and Ring Finders!
    testimonial for Steve Smith (2018)


    I could not be more grateful for Steve a! He is so kind, goes the extra mile & truly gave me back my most prized gift!

    I went to the beach with my husband down the street, just like any normal weekend. That Sunday, we decided to just walk down & enjoy the beach for 60 minutes before his parents were here for lunch. Right when we sat down, I decided (NEVER AGAIN) to take off my wedding band I wore down and put sunscreen on my arms. I placed my wedding band next to my leg on the chair. Well.. I then forgot to put the wedding band back on. 60 minutes later we got our chair and towels and walked home. We were almost home when I looked down and said "MY RING!!! I TOOK IT OFF ON THE SAND"!!! We dropped the chair on the sidewalk and raced to the sand where we had sat. We found the exact spot where we sat and starting sifting through the sand. The family next to where we sat saw me crying and they all came over and helped us look. I knew the ring couldn't be deep, as it only had fallen off a few inches up from the chair.

    After we looked for 15 minutes with the kind family, we knew the ring was gone! We had to race back to meet my in-laws for lunch. I couldn't stop crying but pretend to be ok at lunch. After lunch, I was absolutely DEVASTED. I cried the entire afternoon and evening. I was so upset that I could do something so ridicules to something I treasured so much. We had JUST celebrated our 1year Anniversary.

    That night before bed, I googled " HERMOSA BEACH LOST & FOUND". The first website that came up was . I clicked it, found Steve Smith and started reading his testimonials. All the stories sounded so similar to mine! It sounded too good to be true but I decided to email Steve, as it was late at night. I emailed him and only told him the street I had lost the ring at. And Hermosa Beach is known for its MILES of sand! I went to bed crying and felt helpless.

    Fast forward to 2am. I woke up and the pit in my stomach was still there. I grabbed my phone to see if Steve had emailed back. Not only had he emailed back, but he had texted, called AND had already been to the beach!!! He had gone to the beach immediately at 12am! My heart was pumping! He had texted me that he had found a ring but unfortunately, it wasn't mine. I emailed him back at 3am and put together a very basic map of where exactly we sat and what my ring looked like. I was so hopeful that maybe he could give it another shot in the morning.

    The next morning while I was at work, Steve reached out that he was at the beach again looking but he needed more details on the location. This was 8:30am!!!! I texted my husband to call Steve right then and explain where we sat. less than 2 hours later....STEVE FOUND MY RING! He texted me a picture and I started crying at work!!!! He even offered to bring the ring to me AT WORK!

    Steve is unbelievable. I thought that ring that I treasured was GONE for good. Not only did he go in the middle of night, he went first thing the next morning. He never gave up searching and was so kind. I was reluctant to email Steve with Ring Finders but I cannot explain the appreciation I have for this website and Steve Smith. If you have lost something, please do not hesitate to call Steve. He is a true professional and angel! I am forever indebted to Steve and am so immensely blessed to receive this gift from him. Thank you again, Steve and Ring Finders!

    testimonial for Lanaki Adric (2018)


    Day 1 of our vacation Matt was playing in the sand with Abigail and he lost his wedding ring sitting in the water playing in the sand. We were devastated…. after much searching we had come to terms it was gone forever.

    On an off chance I asked a random beach kiosk if anyone found a ring and they had not but gave us Kai’s Number . He saved our vacation and all done by donation .

    He went out of his way to help us recover such an important and meaningful item and we are so grateful. Everyone’s check out his website and make him go viral!! #TheRingFinders #Hawaii #PutARingOnIt #Waikiki #VacationSaver
