Your good fortune reminds me of my first gold ring many years ago and what a great feeling it is. Enjoy the feeling until the next one comes along and I am sure it will. Congrats on a great find.

Yeah that saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder" sometimes makes sense.

The signal rang up around 61/62 on the Garrett AT Pro. I searched deeds and nobody had those initials who owned the house. It was just a yard find. I was pretty excited. I thought it was going to be another piece of aluminum siding but figured I would need to just dig everything and it paid off.

Yes, that is what I figure. I wonder what those stones originally came off of but will never know. I also wonder how old the previous items they came off of where. I mean, the stones are super old as diamonds but interesting to think of what life they had after being cut.

I should see if they can resize on me and try and look like the old mafia types. Hard to tell if this was meant for a man or women depending on the era.
