    Can jewlery be found magnet fishing? Newbie with general questions

    Im a newbie. And i know there isnt a better place to get the inside scoop and true knowledge then here. So i was wondering is jewlery possible at all to get magnet fishing? Has anyone ever found any this way. I have to take a break from detecting because where i live it is getting really popular and its getting hard to find new spots. Also what is the essential gear to bring out when i go. I appreciate all who reply and dont.

    I guess you could find jewelry magnet fishing if it is made of iron. I prefer gold and silver myself.

    The only jewelry you could find with a magnet, isnt any kind of jewelry you'd want.

    The only thing on a good piece of jewelry that would be attracted to a magnet would be the spring in a clasp. Even with a big magnet there's not enough to support the weight. Coins no. Before spending money on a rig, go to someplace like Harbor Freight and pickup a cheap magnet. Try it out on things you have around the house to learn with. If you're in an area you think there might be a lot of fishing tackle try a grapnel. We used to make our own, but you can buy them online or at some of the well stocked fish & tackle stores. Honestly? Over the years I've found twenty or thirty times more valuable goodies "chucking hook" than I've found with magnets.

    I have seen several videos on u tube that showed individuals finding small hand bags and purses that had either magnetic metal frames or maybe a magnetic item inside and also had some jewelry items in them along with other items.

    Yes you could if the jewelry was poor quality OR the container the GOOD jewelry was in was magnetic. I have a magnet fishing buddy in Europe who has found probably a hundred safes, and a good many of those believe it or not still have stuff in em. He also throws grappling hooks and they will latch onto a purse bag sometimes

    I disagree, don't bother with the harbor freight piece of junk magnet, that will not give you a true sense of magnet fishing. That thing will drop anything you find over 5 lbs especially if you don't have a flat connection (sometimes the items are round). My magnet has pulled out 100 lbs items, even a 40+ lbs torque converter which is round and the magnet was not even fully connected. You don't wanna use a weak magnet your first time, you might lose something it sticks to.

    Precious metals (coins, jewelry, etc.) can sometimes be found in clumps of oxidized iron, if down there long enough. If you're looking in a place with a long history, or the site of a shipwreck, then yes, it's possible. Otherwise, highly unlikely.

    If the jewelry is in an iron safe you will be successful. I found some jewelry while scuba diving a lake near the Miami Airport years ago. A bunch of stuff in a pillow case. A few military medals from World War 2 also. I lost it all when I let somebody have it to look over and then it just got away from me. Nothing really valuable however.
