Default Platinum ring.

A change of scenery for me last Sunday.

Very few signals on the wet sand, 1 coin and a couple of ring pulls and then this.......

....15grams gents platinum wedding ring.

This particular beach its approx. 3 miles long and is popular with surfers all year round and swimmers in the summer. (lifeguard service present)

Thanks for looking.......Doug.

Nice plat, Doug! 2nd century dirt, and a surfing beach = the best of both worlds!
