    UPDATE $1800!!!!! Finally I found a ring and it's a beauty

    My wife, son, and I headed to the beach over the weekend. Night time arrived Sunday and I tried a spot near the hotel. I decided I would try searching a small area of the beach really well rather than just pick an area and pass through it. I mostly try searching the waterline but this time was different, I decided I would try the dry sand also. To make a long story short I found this baby near a trail of pull tabs about 8 inches down. I realized it wasn't another coin by the sound it made swirling around in the scoop. In the moon light I could see it was a large ring, but figured it was a child's fantasy ring. I decided to pull out the flashlight and I started to get weak in my knees with the sight of gold. Afther checking the area to see if there was anything else, I headed back to the hotel (almost running).

    I haven't found out yet what the green stone is but as soon as I find out I will post it. There are 13 nice size diamonds around the green stone, the ring itself is heavy, 14k.

    I guess I finally paid for my Excalibur.....OH YEAH!!!!!!!

    Thanks for looking.

    Now that is a NICE RING! The stone might me an emerald, though there are so many fakes going around it's hard to tell from a picture. Either way it is a super find. WTG.......

    I hope it is the first of many more.....my wishfull thinking.

    I found it at the point where it goes from dry sand to wet sand, more on the dry side.

    Re: Finally I found a ring and it's a beauty

    Thank you Joe.

    The area of Florida where I found it is an area with a lot of money.

    When I saw it in the hotel room I couldn't figure out why someone would take something like this to the beach.

    I hope to have time tomorrow to take it buy a local jewelry shop and get the break down.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Finally I found a ring and it's a beauty

    Just beautiful!
    Congrats
    It looks like a peridot to me,too. And they can be pretty pricey when they get up to a carat or more!
    Nice going!

    Congrats on the super beautiful ring, wooowhooo on the goldie!!
    Great to see, thank you for sharing this sweet treasure.

    I agree Joe's wife, it appears to be a periodot gemstone, the august birthstone.

    Smiles!

    Re: Finally I found a ring and it's a beauty

    Thanks Ashleen,

    I showed it to someone today who told me that it was a peridot. They said the same as you that when they get over a carat they can get pricey. It looks like it is around 2.5 carats, but I hope I will know more tomorrow. Either way it is the hunt that counts, the rewards finance the hunt (fun) to continue.

    SWR, start screaming....just kidding. I found it on the other side of Florida. Thanks.

    Willie D, my knees were shaking too much....I did dream all night with that ring. The dance will start soon.

    Boobydoo, thanks, I just want everybody to see there are items to still be found even by us newones.

    Leon, thanks, and happy hunting
