Paradise, Paused

Your Hawaiian vacation is going great. You’re drinking, eating, swimming, tanning, snorkeling — and then you notice your wedding ring is gone. So who you gonna call? Ring Finders, of course. Chris Turner established the Ring Finders Directory in Vancouver six years ago. Turner, who had been running his own metal detecting service for more than 20 years, created the Ring Finders Directory to help people around the world locate their valuables with the help of local specialists. The finders are all independent contractors who set their own rates and terms, and while there are no guarantees, the site’s blog clearly illustrates the skill of the finders — read: many photos of successfully reunited owners and their objects.
