    EPIC HUNT -- 4 Rings - GOLD SILVER and my first DIAMOND SOLITAIRE

    Got out over the weekend with Lookindown and I'm still in shock. It was just a beautiful day and the crowd was massive. The beachgoers were everywhere. The water was full of people and the beach was even more crowded. We got there early and only about 1 hour into our hunt I got a beautiful middle tone on the CZ21 and after about 3 scoops this beauty made it into my scoop. I actually got it on video but it is way too revealing and too much bad language to put it up but I probably will at some point. To say I was in shock would be an understatement. I have never found a Diamond Solitaire and this one was stunning. The pictures just don't do it justice.

    18K gold with a beautiful diamond. It is made by a company that only uses the highest quality diamonds so I got really lucky there too. I searched the area for about an hour looking for the wedding band but no luck. Lookingdown was in the area so I showed him and he confirms that he also believed it was the real deal. After getting home and checking the diamond is absolutely genuine. We both searched the general area and Lookindown finds a ring but it wasn't the mate to mine. I headed down the beach and get another good tone and about 4 scoops down this chunk shows up.

    7.4 grams of 14K gold. I didn't hunt as much last year as other years but I found only one gold ring and to get two quality rings in only our second hunt of the year is crazy. Of my last 40 or so rings before this only two were gold and to get two back to back I'm just speechless. I am still in shock but I guess persistence pays off. I have been hunting for the better part of 30 years and finally get a huge bucket-lister. I also got a .925 ring that needs to be cleaned up and believe it or not a nice clean 1964 silver quarter that I assume was a recent drop because of very little tarnish and will post both later. Thanks for looking and HH....

    WOW and WOW. I've been looking for that one for some time (see my tag line at bottom). I also just snagged my first diamond solitaire - .08 ct (decimal in right place)! Yours is definitely much bigger, shall I say 2 ct? Last time I met Lookindown at the beach he also gave me good luck with a large gold band. CONGRATS!!!!!!
