  • 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

  • I am thankful for the internet, for TheRingFinders who share their talents. I will never forget you, Terry!
    testimonial for Terry Causey (2020)

    On October 1st, while working on replacing foundation vents, the ring on my right hand was hurting me as I hammered at the old mortar, in spite of the gauntlet gloves I wore as protection against poison ivy. I removed the glove and the ring which I dropped inside my bra. Don’t do this. I continued working, digging out dirt for vent wells, removing old mortar and vents, sitting, and lying in dirt for half of the day. That night, I realized that the ring was not in the “safe” place I had put it; I mentally retraced my steps which were fortunately minimal. I recalled hearing something drop when I was on an uncarpeted floor in our home, but could not recall where that was. Over the weekend I searched the grassy area around the house & raked the dirt. On the 4th I rented a metal detector for 4 hours and learned that while I could not locate my ring, the yard was worth digging up as there was a lot of response, I made 7 cents. During the ensuing days, I divided the probable search area into a grid with kebab skewers and crochet thread and ensured that no one walked there. My husband raked the area and sieved the dirt with doubled chicken wire. We wore a fluorescent headlamp to search at night in the hopes of catching a reflection from gold or stones. I also desperately cleaned in every nook & cranny and under every appliance in our home. I was becoming increasingly depressed. The ring was originally my grandmother’s engagement ring; it passed to her daughter, my aunt, who had no children, so it passed to me. I wore it with pride. My eldest daughter will inherit it. My grief was compounded by my lack of responsibility and the impending need to inform family members of the loss. The internet, which had educated me on all measures noted above, led me to The Ring Finders. I called Terry Causey on October 12th and he agreed to visit on the 13th in a last-ditch effort before I gave up actively searching. He visited as planned, was calm, realistic, and within 45 minutes, successful. I was overwhelmed with joy as I replaced the ring on my finger; I was holding my 16-month-old grandson who is named after the original owner’s son. I am thankful for the internet, for TheRingFinders who share their talents. I will never forget you, Terry! Thank you.

  • I highly recommend Mike for anyone who has lost something ...
    testimonial for Mike McInroe (2020)


    Loosing a ring can make your stomach turn especially when you watch it sink to the bottom of the ocean. Luckily a quick google search brought me to Mike McEnroe on After a quick phone call and a few hours Mike met me the same day at the New Smyrna Dunes Park where I lost me wedding band. Trying not to get my hopes up I anxiously waited as I watched Mike dive under in search of my ring. To my surprise he was able to locate the ring in less than 10 minutes. While the previous day my friend and I tried for two hours and had no luck! Mike exceeded my expectations by meeting me on such a short notice and on the weekend and finding my ring in a shorter time then it took to get all of his gear ready. I highly recommend Mike for anyone who has lost something metal. Nick

  • It made for a meaningful remembrance for the family. Thank you Mark!
    testimonial for Mark Jachym (2020)


    Mark went above and beyond when he found a high school class ring from 1972. He tracked down our school and contacted me asking if we had a graduate from 1972 with the initials engraved on the inside. The owner had recently passed but Mark cleaned up the ring and sent it to us and we were able to send it on to the original owner's family. It made for a meaningful remembrance for the family. Thank you Mark!

  • 10 out of 10! Definitely would recommend. Amazing professional, even better guy.
    testimonial for Rob Ellis (2020)


    This is my story and from the bottom of my heart I am so thankful. I found by chance, desperately searching the interned for what could be done. I said well even if this is fake, my earring can’t get more lost than it is and took a chance. Rob replied IMMEDIATELY and gave life to this search. I can now tell you, THIS IS FOR REAL!!!

    Rob had been relentless in obtaining permission and a permit to search the field. He had come out to the park numerous times, for multiple hours each trip! He was so methodical in his search: roping off sections, measuring, and recording to ensure every inch of that field was covered. He was clearly a professional and knew what he was doing!

    However, after so many times out, I asked “when do we call it quits?” Rob replied with “well we know it’s out here and I haven’t searched everywhere yet!” This is where I tell you that Rob NEVER lost the initial passion from when I told him how important this earring was to me. Even when my faith faded and I came to terms with at least having my other earring, Rob persisted with more passion than even I had. HE IS INCREDIBLE.

    Rob was alone in his search, so I think it speaks to his honesty and integrity that when he found my earring, he immediately texted me and waited at the park for me to come pick it up. He truly brings so much joy back to people’s lives.

    10 out of 10! Definitely would recommend. Amazing professional, even better guy. Thank you, Rob. Thank you!!!
