  • 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 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 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.

  • 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.
