Default Mega Silver Ring

Absolute banger of a Silver ring almost 1oz in weight - I was in a patch of bottle caps on a beach and saw the rim of this in the sand and thought it was another cap, tried to pick it up and almost found my hand stuck to the sand.

I always love those pix of the ring-on-the-scale. Those are the "money-shot" come-to-Papa poses. Nice !
