Default * Bigtime Happy Dance .. * The Value is In *

I was really fired up for the beach today and as I entered my favorite little beach today I was immediately aware of a cut about 10 meters from the high tide mark.
All the pebbles & hard pack sand was exposed along the towel line for about 150 to 200 meters.I've not seen this exposed since February 2010 so I just knew it was going to be good.

The very first signal was this huge gold ring with 10 nice sized diamonds,no markings but it tests 18ct easily & the diamonds test real too.weight 8.95 grams.(I'm certainly going to get this professionally checked out)
Then over a three hour period I was up & down and up & down the cut. :P

Scored over 48 mixed coins , two more 9k heart rings & another decent sized 18ct wedding band,weight on this one 7grams.

So four gold in one day is my best so far, lots of happy dances today and I'm sure I will be back there tomorrow for another look.
Maybe soon have enough for an overseas trip too. :

Meggie ...

The more I look at the ring the more excited I'm getting but not getting my hopes up yet though.

I have just had confirmation from my local jewelers
After testing the gold & diamonds they wanted to dance too. :

They where very impressed with the quality of the diamonds.
So I will be letting them get a written valuation done for me later in the week.



All cleaned & buffed up ... looking better every minute.

Beautiful ring you found. Now tell me why anyone would wear that to the beach? A Lucky day for you though! Good luck on future hunts. : )
