Default Huge necklace and ring #12

Found a giant necklace buried about 6 inches deep. I wasn't going to dig it because the VDI was bouncing all over the place but I figured what the heck.. it's a junk necklace but it was still super fun.

Ring number 12 had me fooled until I got home. It looked so much like something plated over silver. Got home and did an acid test and unfortunately it's not gold or silver but still a heck of a rush! Anytime I find a ring in the dirt, it's a great day!

Oh yeah.. .bouncing VDI's don't scare me off. I always have to go back and dig them up, just because it "might be" a necklace.

I find plenty of junk necklaces (i don't post them), but only a few silver ones.

Fun to find, but c'mo-o-on gold!! You two are figuring out the jewelry thing. I just hit 15 rings for the year, yesterday. Trying to stay a step ahead of you guys isn't easy! I'll probably be trying to catch up with you soon enough.

LOL! Thanks for the kind words. We're definitely trying. Mostly just lucky but still LOL. 15 rings is a heck of a head start!

I think so. It rang up just like a wheat penny so I'm guessing it could be.
