Rings are almost magical. I have to admit that I am kind of a ring fanatic. I love them. But I really love digging rings up – and I think you will too. So, let me tell you a few stories of ring finds.
This first ring was a total shocker for me. I had just gotten my first detector and was just itching to get out. So, a friend and me headed to an older park. I really didn’t know exactly what I was doing, but I was eager. So, I tried to think through where people would have walked and moved. I headed around back of an old house that was on the premises and got some signals. There was a lot of trash, but I just kept digging everything. Near a telephone pole in the back I found this sweet sterling silver ring. I was totally beside myself. I didn’t think the diamonds were real, but we went and got them tested anyway. Nope, they aren’t real, but man – what a rush!
When I went on a trip to Raleigh, NC, I took my detector. I went to an older park that was having work done on it. On a hillside I got an interesting, but choppy signal. I about fell over when I saw this cool silver ring pop out of the plug.
When I was home, I went to a sports field. I was heading around the outfield of a ballfield and was getting the typical trash. Man, there were a lot of pulltabs near the infield. As I was heading toward the third base line, I got a very solid signal. I dug the plug and out came a silver ring. I cleaned it off to see the .925 or sterling mark. To my shock, I found a 14k mark inside. I couldn’t believe it – a white gold ring.
Trust me – once you start finding rings, you will love it!!!!
