Default My first HALO ring! Massive stone!

Too bad it's completely fake.

Grrrr. Ring #91 for the year. Ah well, at least I have a halo ring in a decent picture for the year-end book.

LOL

Cheers!

Finding a ring like that is a big rush when you first unearth it, but then you get thrown to the ground when you find out that it's fake. It's still a good looking ring though. Big Congrats!

Fortunately, it wasn't "too bad" for me, as it rang up solid 77. As soon as I saw it wasn't a penny, and the thin band (it was pressed sideways into the earth, and all I could see was the outline and the ring hole), I figured it was a junker. When pulled it out, my brain switched to "hope against all odds" mode, but it was too light. Then a quick swipe showed it was plated, and an inspection of jewels showed it was glued together.

Agree though. Fun to have a bit of excitement. Made me start wishing it HAD been real!

Wanna buy it? I'll send it to you. All you have to do is send me an autographed copy of your $9.95 book, first. Steal of the century, there.

Skip!
