Congrats on the diamond ring!

You must be using a pi machine, because there's no way in hell a ring that size would sound like a penny, or read close to penny numbers on a multi frequency machine. That'd probably read around an 11 on my nox... you'd need a 20 gram class ring or high karat ring to hit up in the penny range...

Bummer, bust it out and scrap the gold, worth more than the rock.
