I might be able to find a buyer for that ring. Our local high school uses a rabbit for a mascot. I bet somebody would pay good money for that.

Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately it's a really small kid's junker ring.. An unused postage stamp is worth a lot more... Lol

That probably looked much better when the stones were in it. Those look like mounts.

I want to play Iceman. I'll leave out the ugly rose ring but I have two that I can't imagine someone being able to give away much less purchase. If I win, I want you and Mud to take me out to dinner.

Missing stones doesn't make it ugly, just makes it easier to scrap...

I haven't been hunting much at all this year so I don't have any ugly ones.

Powers that be..

If this thread got bumped over on the beach water side, I think we might have more interest?

As agreed to by me, and suggested by DirtyDog as well..

Thanks,
