    A find is a find I suppose

    Well me and my wife had to make the dreaded trip to Walmart after 3 weeks of sitting at the house. It turned out better than I expected! I have not been able to get out like everyone else, so I have not hunted in a while.
    As we started to go in the store, walking in the entrance I turned to see about getting a buggy. I opted not to but saw something bounce from my wife's shoe. Low and behold I saw a ring under the buggies. I looked around and no one was near so I bent down picked it up and thought SCORE I felt it had weight and saw the breathing holes so I handed it to her to look at for hallmarks.

    Wound up being 10K with 85 diamonds. The biggest in center about 1/3rd carat.

    Wow that is beautiful! Your wife must be a happy camper, unlike the poor woman who lost it. I bet you are glad that you got out

    If you do THAT well without a detector imagine how well you'll do with a detector! Congrats Eagle Eye
