It's hard not to love how well the Garrett AT Pro handles itself around jewelry. It may not be tops for other stuff, but it doesn't miss many rings...

Great work John. How well you bond with your detector is the most important part of detecting.

It truly is a great detector. It really compliments a great hobby, and that is what really counts in the big picture. A hobby not enjoyed, is not a hobby!

A lot of people have also commented that the AT Series are one of the best for jewelry. Different machines for different tasks comes to mind.
