Default Silver and some Gold!!

Equinox scores another gold!

I found a small washout that was productive with a few greenies. Slowed down a little and hit some silver. After digging the silver and a few more greenies I seen a glimmer of yellow in my scoop. Itís broken and missing the center stone but Iíll take it! Not sure if itís 14k or 18k.

Thanks for looking! 🏴!☠️🤘🏻🔥

Very nice. Looks 18k. I've got em just like that. Was probably a sapphire in there. Too bad the 800 doesn't have a diamond only feature !

That one look high K for sure and maybe why the stone is gone and its separated. It being open like that says a lot about how well the machine does. Some machines do NOT like those open rings.... you get a really bad and short signal. Congrats on the yellow.

Yeah. Since Iím hunting in 2 tone with all targets above 0 set to the highest pitch and all targets below 0 (iron) set to the lowest pitch these broken rings will have a 2 tone sound but the high pitch tone was more dominant than the low tone so I knew it could be a good target.

Congrats on that pickup! What Dew said on machines not picking up...years ago my CZ barely made a blip on a gold ring that I could see sitting on top of a rock underwater near shore. When I checked it the shank on the ring was barely separated.

I dunno why, but I love seeing the beach-black silver jewelry clanking around in my basket, almost as much as the gold. Nice pix !
