About The Ring Finders

Stories by Telus

My name is Chris Turner from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I’ve been metal detecting for over 52 years and helping people find their lost rings for over 30 years.

My goal is to offer the world an online directory of metal detecting specialists that will help people find their lost jewelry at beaches, parks, lakes and yards all around the world.

The Ring Finders directory of independent metal detecting specialists is 15 years old now and we are ready to help you find what you thought was lost forever. My goal is to help you get reunited with your lost jewelry.

The Ring Finders members have recorded over 13230 successful recoveries to date and have had some amazing stories to tell on their personal blog pages.

I personally have had the honour to find and return over 524 lost rings to their very happy owners. I have heard the stories that these rings come with and what it means to people to have a second chance to find what they thought was lost forever. This by far has been the greatest job I’ve ever had…I get to make people smile!

Please keep in mind that this is a directory to help you find a metal detecting specialist to search for your lost jewelry, and not a referral service.

These are independent metal detector owners and operators, most cases with many years of experience. I have shared my 30 years of search experiences and search tips with all members.

The members listed on The Ring Finders directory all set their own rates and terms, and no recommendations, guarantees or endorsements are made regarding any of the individuals or businesses listed.

Please visit our Book of Smiles, It is my sincere hope that you can be reunited with your lost jewelry and that your smile could also be added to the many we have documented over the years.

We look forward to helping you find your Smile!

Best in Treasure,
Chris Turner
