  • thanks for saving our Honeymoon (2016)


    Kim and I can’t thank Mark enough! We were on the way back to the rental car after a walk on the beach at night when her wedding ring slid off her finger and fell into the sand. We knew the general area it landed in, and got on our hands and knees and searched for it, but nothing.

    Married less than a week earlier, she was obviously distraught and sobbing. A couple of passers by stopped and helped us search in the sand, but no luck. Kim did not want to leave the area, and as Mark mentioned, we stayed overnight in our rental car to make sure no one disturbed the area where we thought the ring fell.

    Out of state and not sure what to do, luckily I found Mark’s name and contact info through The Ring Finders website. Waited until the morning to call, and he was at our location within a half hour. Seemingly within minutes, he had found her ring! What a life saver! We cannot thank Mark enough for his help and are so grateful, and cannot recommend him enough if you run into a similar situation. It was great to meet you Mark and talk with you after, thanks for saving our Honeymoon and an irreplaceable ring!

  • Mark, Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have in my heart... (2015)


    Mark, Words cannot begin to express the gratitude I have in my heart for the return of my wedding ring. I had nearly lost all hope but decided to give it a shot by contacting you. You were quick to return my call and by sharing your knowledge & experience of beach searches, I started to have a glimmer of hope. You made time for my search that day even though you had already spent most the day in the surf. Your professionalism & experience really showed in the time you spent to get as much detail as possible. I will forever be thankful God blessed me to find you & that through your patience and skill, you were able to return such a sentimental piece of me. Thank you!!!
