Default 21K Today

I dont post very often but I thought I would share this since this was a first for me and the highest karat ring I have found so far. I worked a small portion of the shoreline that had a nice washout of rocks. This was just laying in a few inches of water and was found with my excal along with about 20 or so crusty coins.

Beautiful filigree! Nice find, and that buttery yellow is so irresistible...

Very cute and buttery little one! Never seen a 21k!

What's inside those hearts? Is it some kind of stone? Hard to make out from the picture.

No stones, just looks like a white gold overlay to me. Needless to say, I have never seen a 21K either so I'll take it.
