Default When is finding a Titanium ring not disappointing? *2nd night hunt pics added*

When it's hallmarked Tiffany & Co! Went out last night for low tide, which really wasn't that low but low enough to be able to work the slope. Surf conditions were fierce and I had my head on a swivel watching out for sneaker waves. Found a beauty of a cut that stretched pretty far and hit it hard non stop till the waves started pinning me against it a few hours later. First good target was a 925 rope chain, followed by a chunky 925 ring and a 1964 rosie. shortly after I hit a very small 10k gold micro diamond band weighing a meager 1 gram. As my hunt was coming to a close I pulled out what looked like your average bummer titanium band.... shined my head lamp at the inside of the shank and saw the flash of that sweet overpriced name brand hallmark "Tiffany & Co", It retails for $350 on the Tiffany website! Definitely had fun on this hunt, the waves kept me on my toes the whole time. Gonna hit it again tonight!

Thanks for looking, GL & HH!

Nice score on the Tiffany Titanium ring. You could resell that for quite a bit too. Congrats on the other finds

It may say "Tiffany & Co", and it may retail for $350 .... but ... I still feel sorry for the person who paid $350 for a titanium ring

Great hunt slim. On a side note years ago I realized that if people would buy pet rocks theyíll buy anything ever a titanium band marked Tiff & Co.

Nice set of clinkers and sinkers. Good work under wave action pressure. That's a hazard us dirt diggin' land lubbers don't have to deal with.
Beautiful photo shoot line-up btw.

Well there is a market for them for some unknown reason. Put the company logo on it and sell it for huge profit.
I found a T&Co silver ring this week. Itís silver and itís MSRP is less than the Ti above.

I wouldnít be surprised if they have tungsten carbide rings too. Who could have guessed that the metal of drill bits and saw blades would be the metal of jewelry.

I thinks itís a big joke on us all.

Precisely. It looks nice to our senses of "finds" that the cost-when-new is such & such. Yet truth be told: We are not likely to realize any-such value .... on our end . The intrinsic value is nothing

The only hope of re-couping any of this $350, is to float it on ebay. And hope someone wants it as as end-consumer.

A branded Tiff Titanium ring? Thats 'messed' up right there! Whats the World coming to? Talk about a cusser of a find! Whats next? Plastic Faberge eggs? Anthracite Black diamonds? Harbor Freight branded jewelry? Lustrium Class rings? Naugahyde letterman jackets? Where is this heading?

Tiff gonna be selling Stainless Steel 9/16 boat dock washers for $200 per dozen? Maybe some nice Tiff Tungsten bullet weights for the discriminating Bass fisherman who is environmentally conscious for $300 a pack?? They may as well!...This is so horrible I shudder at the thought, amazed at the unabashed marketing and ignorance of the Gen Pop!! Thank God for the Asians and Indians who recognize PM's residual value and prefer GOLD!

I sure hope you can offload that worthless mutherhubbard for near retail price to a greater fool than the original...They are quite common now a days it seems...Shouldnt be no problem...Let us know..

Nice hunt man, anything tiffany is a great find! I bet if they put out their own line of pulltabs they would sell for at least 75 bucks...

Hey Slim, Congrats on finding a good beach to hunt and the treasure! I had no idea that Tiffany made those- may be time to take a closer look at some of my "junk" rings!
