Default Finally a ring after almost a week

So I'm in NC on vacation, and have been hunting 4-6 hours a day for the past week.

FINALLY yesterday I found a ring. It was about 8 inches down in the wet sand, mid-tide line. It's junk, but stamped (I just can't read the stamps) and appears old based upon the style.


It fits though....and actually fits my wife's ring finger.


I have one more day (today) to get some real jewelry.....so I'm hopeful.

Nice!

I'm going on 4th hunt with no ring. New record for me. I've found 5 earrings, 2 gold 1 silver, but no rings?

Ring could be silver... looks like it was plated with Rhodium possibly.

They don't REALLY fit though unless they're gold or platinum! Congrats!

I wish I could read the markings. I'll try to get a better shot

I can also test it at home....it looks old to me

Yeah..I wish LOL

it was almost a bust, but I found about a dozen matchbox cars (gave several away to kids who asked me what I was doing and what I found...AFTER getting permission from their parents of course) and a few bucks in clad.

I've got a keychain (I think) that I need to clean up but that has some very shiny gold colored parts of it...and that's about it other than this ring and a junker I also have to clean up.

It was a lot of fun though, even though I dug a lot of trash and sinkers (pictures of the junk and non-junk coming up soon) and I'm looking forward to going again.

I also got together MAdManX a couple of times and had a blast....it's great to have company detecting.
