Default My first ring. Been detecting about a year now.

Found a 14k ring today. Smack dab in the middle of a soccer field. About 3" deep. Only other jewelry i've found is a cheap broken up watch and a nice little sterling charm in the shape of a cross embedded with diamonds, fake i'm sure but never tested them. Anyway, love the hobby and enjoy my solitude while detecting.

Sweet. Heck, I would wear that if it fit. Looks too small for you.

He shoots, he SCORES!!! ...and the crowd goes wild! That's a fine looking ring. Congrats! The diamond in that one is probably real. What kind of signal did you get from it on your Equinox?
