The first thing that popped up “The Ring Finders”. I read some of the comments on the site and thought wow!! (2021)
Kai thank you for comming out to the Westside to help me find my wedding ring. It’s been 2 long days of so little rest, stressed, and thinking is there people out on oahu who looks for loss jewelry????
Also I didn’t know how to tell my husband that I lost my wedding in the ocean while taking my kids for a swim at the beach.
I was so sadden that he asked me whats wrong?? Are you ok?? In the mean time I told him and he said why didn’t you take it off before you went swimming and I said it was tight on my finger I didn’t think it would fall off. I grabbed my phone an googeled jewelry finders on oahu. The first thing that popped up “The Ring Finders”. I read some of the comments on the site and thought wow!!! Some of the stories are in the ocean where it’s deep. Immediately I look for a contact number on the site.
I called an spoke with a guy name Joe who said I currently can’t go in the ocean right now but I know a guy who would help. So he texted me the guys name and number. I immediately called kai and he answered!!! I told him a guy name Joe gave his number to me because I’m currently in a situation where I needed someone to help me find my wedding ring in the ocean.
He said hi.my name is kai. What happened, how can I help you. So I told him I lost my wedding ring in the ocean and need some help finding it. Would you be able to help me??? He then told me do you know the location in the water where you lost it? I said I was in a pond with lots of rocks surrounding me and my kids. He then said did you just loose it? I said no it’s been about 2 days now. Me,my brother in law and my 10 yr old daughter went to 711 to see if they sold goggles.
Immediately we found 3 goggles in the store purchased it and went back to the pond. In the meantime the sun was setting an it was getting dark. We had no luck finding my ring. We headed back home showered and I told my daughter I’m going back early in the morning because the tide should be supper low and the water should be clear to see. We searched for hours with no luck in finding that ring so that’s why I called you. He then said I have to talk to my wife and I will call you back.
2 hours went by so I call him and said are you still stopping by today. Is everything OK with your wife? He then said yes while in traffic on my way there someone rear-end me. I’m like so sorry to hear maybe I can reschedule for another day because I know how long it takes when you get in to a car accident. He’s like no I’m settling things here an ill be there. About 10 mins he calls and he said I’m at the beach waiting. Me and all my kids head to the beach to tell him where I think it fell off in the ocean.
He searches the whole pond while me and my daughter are looking in the ocean too, and while my babies are swimming In The pond. Finally I tell my babies I’m gonna sit on the sand. I call my sister up because prior to us heading down to the beach she was on the phone with me and I totally forgot to hang up the phone to show kai where I lost my ring.
So we are talking on face time and my babies come out of the water to play sand. About 10min go’s by and a guy approached me asking if I have a goggles he can borrow because he lost his car keys while surfing. So I told him yeah you can borrow it. He’s like I’ll bring it back how long are you gonna be here. I said I’ll wait because I currently have someone in the pond helping me search for my wedding ring.
He says ok thanks. When I find my keys I’ll come back and help look for your ring. 5mins after that kai walks out the water and I tell my daughter. I don’t think he had any luck finding it. She’s like I think he found it and I’m like I don’t think so. He approached me and said can you explain to me how your ring looks like again, was you able to find a picture of it, is your husband home?
I’m like I can’t find a really clear picture of it and my husband’s resting because he is NOT feeling to good at the moment.
He’s like I wanted to know more about the story behind the ring. Meantime my sister is still on the phone and he says who are you talking to? I say my sister then he says can you tell her to turn on her camera right then he tells her is this how the ring looks like shows it and she yells yes!!!!
That’s her ring!!!!! I turn to look an he has my ring in his hand I thank him with excitement. I head back home with my kids to get my wallet to pay him for coming out to maili to find my wedding ring.
Then I’m guessing when I went in the the house the guy that borrowed my goggles is looking for me to return it and help me find my ring. He sees kai at the shower an asks him if he knew where I went because he borrowed my goggles to look for his keys.
Kai then tells him I found her ring and then he says I told her if I find my keys I’ll help her find her ring after but, you found it and I found my keys everybody wins thank God.
utmost gratitude for Lanaki’s skills and service!! (2021)
My words couldn’t fully express my utmost gratitude for Lanaki’s skills and service!! During the ceremony, my husband and I noticed that although the engagement ring was found in the sand, the wedding band was still missing. He tells me not to worry, we will find it after the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and I was fully present in the moment, but afterwards my mind went back to the band. When we couldn’t find it with an initial search in the sand, Lanaki’s wife advised us to stop looking with our hands because we were probably making it worse. She told me that she called her husband, Lanaki, and he was on the way. When he arrived on site to look for the ring, I just couldn’t believe how quickly he was able to find it, within minutes!! I was in shock, a happy shock, but shocked none the less. I know that the ability to find the ring that quickly takes skill! If you’re in need of someone to find your ring, I would highly recommend Lanaki! I was definitely relieved and super ecstatic that he found the wedding band. It was the perfect end to our beautiful wedding surprise/gender reveal. Mahalo plenty from the bottom of my heart, Lanaki! We will never forget the role you played on our special day.
Thank you x 1000 for your help yesterday! (2021)
Thank you x 1000 for your help yesterday! Pat and I are so happy we got the opportunity to meet you! You saved our day : )
I must admit I was skeptical at first. It was hard to imagine that we would be able to find a ring the size of quarter in the vast ocean of Waikiki beach! But you found it!!! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to help a couple of strangers! We owe you big time! Please contact us when you are in NYC or heading to Ireland.
Anjelica and Pat
Thank you so much again for everything and I will keep you in my prayer. Thank you~~~ (2021)
When I had realized I lost my ring at the sharks cove I first panicked but my wife calmed me down that I might have just left it at our hotel room. After the tour, I came to the room only to find that my ring was not there. I google searched how to find a ring in the ocean and many comments directed to just buy a replacement as its almost impossible to find. Thats when I came across this website and Kai so I wanted to give it a shot as a last resort. I called him late around 11pm and during our 30 mins chat, he gathered all the information and confirmed he would head out the first thing next morning. Honestly I was very skeptical that he would find and return the ring. I got a text from him the following day that he is on the way to the sharks cove. Around noon I got a missed call from Kai so I returned his call and he shared the greatest news that he had found the ring!! He even drove down to Waikiki to meet and hand deliver the ring and I really cannot express enough gratitude. He is a truly amazing, friendly, passionate man and he seemed very pleased that he was able to return it back to me. I am so glad I was able to get it back as well. By far this is the most memorable moment in my first Hawaii trip both ups and downs and I will never forget his help!! Thank you so much again for everything and I will keep you in my prayer. Thank you~~~
I will recommend you guys to anyone who needs your help!!!! (2021)
Thank you thank you thank you Kai from the bottom of our hearts. Kai did not have to go out of his way to help us coming from Pearl City all the way to Hau’ula on a Friday late afternoon in traffic to come to our rescue but because the type of man, brother, person that he is he did. Not only did he find my sons chain but we found an awesome man, person, friend for dear life. Such a nice man loved learning what little time that we shared about him and his family and his passion. Thank you Jesus for bringing us together! Would also like to thank Joe for the referral hope your back is feeling better. I will recommend you guys to anyone who needs your help!!!! Lots of Love, Lopes’ Ohana
. I am so grateful that there are people like Kai who are willing to give of their time and abilities so selflessly just to help others. (2020)
I was at the beach with my family and took my rings off to reapply sunscreen, then completely forgot about them until we had already packed up & were heading back to the car. I went back to look for them but it was impossible. I thought that they were gone forever. A friend referred me to Kai so I thought it was worth a shot. I emailed him that night & he replied right away. He went back to the beach early the next morning to look. I couldn’t believe that someone would spend hours on his day off trying to help someone that he had never even met! i honestly wasn’t expecting much and didn’t want to get my hopes up, but I couldn’t believe it when he told me he had actually found them! He even drove out with his family in the middle of the night to return my rings. I am so grateful that there are people like Kai who are willing to give of their time and abilities so selflessly just to help others. Mahalo for everything that you do & for finding and returning something so precious!
Kai was so great. I highly recommend him to anyone who has lost a ring in Hawaii. (2019)
Aloha. This is Dan, the owner of the missing platinum ring Kai found on February 17th. I’ll never forget this day. That afternoon I’d spent a couple hours playing in the water with my nieces. Then all of a sudden my ring just slipped off. I couldn’t believe it. It happened so fast and I’d only been married 12 days!!
So the search began. My wife and I, her sister, her father, and a kind couple swimming near us, started scouring the ocean floor for the lost ring. The tide was going out and we were behind a breakwater so we could see pretty well. Didn’t help. We looked and looked and found nothing but sand. We bought some goggles and took turns searching close to the ocean floor. Still nothing. After nearly two hours, the sun was setting and the kids were cold. We finally had to admit it was time to go and the ring was lost. We were devastated.
At home, I got online, did some searching, and learned about Kai (Lanaki) on RingFinders. I sent him an email around 9:00 PM expecting him to contact me the next day (keep in mind it was Sunday night). Within 20 minutes, Kai had me on the phone. He asked some questions as I tried to explain what happened and where the ring might be. He looked up the tide charts and told me it was a go. Are you kidding me?! He was willing to meet a stranger, in 30 minutes, on a cool Sunday, to help search for a lost ring!
At the beach, I met Kai and his father. We talked about where the ring might be. Kai was a complete professional. He explained the process and what to expect. He tested his equipment, turned on his headlamp, and within minutes was in the water scanning. All I could do was standby on the beach and watch and hope.
Kai was in chest deep water when I saw him slow down with the detector. “No way” I thought to myself. It hasn’t even been 10 minutes. Could it be? Sure enough, Kai spun around and gave me a big nod with his headlamp– the signal that he’d found the ring. Unbelievable! Just like that Kai had located and reunited me with my wedding band. A moment I will never forget.
Kai was so great. I highly recommend him to anyone who has lost a ring in Hawaii. He knows what he’s doing and he’s a great guy to boot. I feel incredibly lucky to have met him and his father, and benefitted from their expertise and generosity. Thank you guys!
Kai was an answer to our prayers. (2018)
Kai was an answer to our prayers. Kai dropped everything on short notice to come visit us that morning in our time of need. As you can tell by our experience and other posts, Kai is an expert in finding cherished valuables and can give anyone hope that is in a predicament like we were in. As good as an expert he is with his equipment and his methodology to find our ring and others, he is a better person and has a pure heart and uses his talents to serve others.
Kai, you were an answer to our prayers and you have such a beautiful family. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wife Ohana and your two beautiful kids. Please don’t hesitate to look us up when you make it back to the mainland and if you make it up to the 801!
he is 100% trustworthy, understanding and compassionate. A true example of aloha (2018)
A beautiful morning at the beach turned to panic when I noticed our family’s treasured heirloom- my grandmother’s almost hundred year old diamond and platinum ring was no longer on my finger. I looked online and called the first ring finder that popped up. After very noble hour and half looking, it seemed that luck was not on our side. I went home broken hearted, posted to lost and found craigslist and decided to relax, and figure out a game plan to fully exhaust the search the following morning. I woke up early and checked my phone right away with the tiniest hope that maybe someone had responded to my listing. Instead, there was a text from Kai. He had reached out to offer his help, if we were gonna do another search- I had a feeling this guy was gonna give it his best for one more look. An hour later we meet up at the beach. Long story short…HE FOUND THE RING IN 15 MINS!!! Aside from being a total pro at searching- he is 100% trustworthy, understanding and compassionate. A true example of aloha. My advice if you have a lost item…stay positive, don’t give up looking and get in touch with Kai ASAP.
Much Mahalo to you, Kai. You are truly blessed in the works you do.
He went out of his way to help us recover such an important and meaningful item and we are so grateful. (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
Kai is so kind and so wonderful and just so awesome. (2018)
I was so devastated when I lost my jewelry at the beach, especially a necklace my mother had given me. I thought they were lost forever but I posted an ad and a couple hours later Kai called and gave me hope! He was so wonderful to work with and then went above and beyond to help me. He drove all the way to the North Shore at around 10:00pm and searched for two hours in the dark until he found my jewelry!! I couldn’t even believe it. Kai is so kind and so wonderful and just so awesome.
Lanaki was so so sweet and honest. (2018)
Lanaki was so so sweet and honest. We just got married in July 2017 and this ring was engraved with our wedding date and the word “forever”. We were swimming around and enjoying our honeymoon when I saw absolutely terrified face of my husband Ted. His ring fell off. Even though he could barely touch the bottom, the water was just not clean enough to geg it. He got goggles in hope to find the ring, but it was absolutely useless, as he could dive only for short period of time and see very little of the bottom. Couple minutes after the attempts to retrieve the ring, we lost hope and returned to the beach. We were devastated. I started looking into buying a new ring. Ted kept stating he does not want one as it will not be the same (his ring was custommade with unique pattern that is not possible to replicate). I tried to look for solution, when I finally came across the ring finders. We had nothing to lose. I contacted a couple people before talking to Lanaki, and as soon as I did I got a gut feeling that he is the one that I should ask for help. He came to Ala Moana extremely fast, he was patient with me and extremely sweet. Needless to say, we got ring back within minutes! We were over the moon. This whole story is so surreal yet fascinating. Thank you so much
