THANK YOU Donald! (2019)
My husband and I went to Puerto Rico to take a break from school and visit/spend the holidays with our families back home. We went to the beach in January and decided to take our fur-baby with us for his first swim at the beach. When we went into the water, I was holding my dog and as soon as I was getting ready to release him so that he swam, I felt his nail pushing my wedding rings off my finger! Everything happened so fast. My husband and I tried retrieving it by trying to touch everything we could with our feet (my husband even cut himself), but the waves were not making it easy. After a few tears, we gave up and went home. That night I googled what to do if you lose a ring at the beach and found an article with recommendations and almost at the end “ring finders” was mentioned. I had never heard of this website, so I looked it up and found Donald! With little hope I called him the next morning and explained what happened. Donald was able to go to the beach where everything happened that same day AND he found one of the wedding rings! So, suddenly my hope was/is back! I am hopeful that he might find the other one. THANK YOU Donald!
Thank you so much. Words can't explain how happy and grateful I am! (2018)
August 24,2018 I lost my ring in the ocean in San Juan while swimming. I contacted theringfinders.com and was pointed to an awesome gentleman who happened to be in the area (lucky me). He came out with his partner first thing next morning and the hunt was on. About an hour later they asked me what my ring looked like and BOOM my ring was in his hand!!! Thank you so much. Words can't explain how happy and grateful I am!
Donald, thank you so much for everything you did. You're a life saver. (2018)
Celebrating our marriage at our beach house in Puerto Rico, my wife and I decided to swim in the ocean. After a few minutes of enjoying the sea, I felt my heart drop. My wedding ring fell off my finger. I could see in my newlywed wife's eyes, what she was thinking and it was not good, "You lost the symbol of our marriage within a week."
While she stayed in the place I thought I lost it, I ran to the house to find goggles. After a day of swimming in the ocean and looking for it, I thought it was gone.
The next day, I got up an swam for it for another 2.5 hours. I had already looked for it for over 8 hours in the ocean, and was about to give up. I randomly, googled "how do you find a ring in the ocean?" and came across Donald O'Reilly of theringfinders.com. Don and I spoke, and he was at my home within a few hours. He was polite, timely, had a great attention to detail and was an excellent listener to my story and the possibility of the location of the ring.
We both got in the ocean and began to search... after about 20 minutes, I said to Donald, "This feels right... this is about the location". Within 2 minutes of saying that Donald detected the ring!
Donald, thank you so much for everything you did. You're a life saver. What you did was priceless.
Dorado, Puerto Rico
So to you Mr. Donald Oreilley (my angel) I say THANK YOU (2017)
I have always said there are angels walking among us and if we pay
attention you will even see them or get to meet them, I met one while on a
well- deserved family vacation to Puerto Rico So to make a long story
short I will tell you how I met my angel.
On Thursday 08/03 we decided to go to a beach in San Juan Isla Verde,
beautiful beach but the waves were strong, crashing hard enough to pull
you. And in a blink of an eye I lost my wedding rings. Yes I did and in
the water. Waves after waves crashing in, so after the shock of them
coming off my finger THEN came the tears and nothing was going to make me
feel better but to have my rings back. I kind of turned into to Smeagol
from Lord of the Rings when he lost his PRECIOUS. Yes that was me I lost
my precious. My husband said not to worry he can get me another one bigger
and better, but I don’t want bigger and better I want the original one,
because the sentimental value is PRICELESS. Unable to sleep, toss and
turning on Saturday night I was reading and looking for info online and
maybe I would actually fall asleep, to keep me from thinking that I will
soon leave P.R. without my rings, but I found this page TheRingFinders
I thought to myself REALLY, was this a sign, maybe the light
at the end of this dark place I was in. I sent an email and called Sunday
morning. Spoke to Donald Oreilley explained where I was, what happened
and prayed for a miracle. This is my angel. Donald Oreilley, the person
who went out to this beach and after hours of looking he actually found
one of my rings, my engagement ring after 4 days in the ocean with those
waves crashing hard. God is good, the power of prayer and my angel who
was able to give me back part of my precious. So to you Mr. Donald
Oreilley (my angel) I say THANK YOU and I will always be grateful for what
you did and I have faith that you will find the other ring.
