  • You're truly are our guardian angel and will never know how much you saved us yesterday. (2020)


    I called this man in absolute distress and tears after losing my 6000$ princess cut engagement ring of my dreams, at Gooseberry Island in Westport. AND MY WEDDING WAS ON SATURDAY, 3 DAYS AWAY. I had spent the previous night digging in the sand, and then the following morning doing the same until it was late enough in the day to purchase a metal detector from Dick’s, but after about 6 more hours of nonstop searching, aided by this new instrument ( even with knowing the exact spot I lost it) I still had no results. At this point, I was lost as for what to do, except maybe invest in a metal detector costing half the ring! Then I did some research and found this website, and immediately contacted Kent. He was on his way and was here from Plymouth within an HOUR. And then found my ring within 15 MINUTES! He was so nice and professional and extremely helpful. When we went to hand him our money, he tried to hand all but 20$ back! Absolutely not, Kent deserved every penny and I wish I was in the financial situation to reward him even more! Not only did he save my day and my WEDDING, he was such an awesome happy go lucky person and has a great heart. Me and my fiancé enjoyed his company and his conversation very much! He was such a sweet guy, and I’m still shocked that this service or these types of people exist! Thank you so much for everything Kent! You're truly are our guardian angel and will never know how much you saved us yesterday.

Thank you so much for using your hobby to do good for others and bring joy to people who need it. Thank you again, and keep searching!! – Brett

  • Thank you, Kent and Ring Finders! (2011)


    Hi, Kent! Hope you’re doing well. I’m sorry I haven’t sent the story yet. I tried to post it on the website, but couldn’t figure out how to do so.

    Thanks again for everything!!! Here’s my story:

    I lost my engagement ring while raking at my mother’s house. I felt it come off into the bag of leaves I was using, but then couldn’t find it after multiple rounds of sifting through the leaves despite knowing where it had fallen.

    My husband found Ring Finders – and Kent – through a quick google search. When Kent came to my mother’s house to retrieve the ring, one of the first things he said was: “It’s almost never where people think it is.” Indeed.

    Kent was super friendly, efficient, and competent. He did a thorough search of where I thought the ring would have been, in the pile of leaves I’d emptied from the bag. After 10 minutes of concentrated searching, he said, “I’m confident the ring’s not in this area.”

    He began searching another area close by. I was looking in a third area, and mentally beginning to freak out, when I Kent said, “I hope you have a happy new year,” and dropped the ring into the palm of my hand.”

    Delight! Relief! Joy! I hugged Kent. And then my mother. And then my husband when I got home.

    Thank you, Kent and Ring Finders!
