    Please help with XLT and lost wedding ring

    Hello, I am in desperate need of expert help. Last night I went to take the trash out and a short time later I noticed my wedding ring had came off. I took the trash back in and looked all through it but nothing found but the trash. I have an XLt but do not know much about it and am just starting tyring to get in the hobby. there is allot of nail debris etc since we just had allot of work done on the house. I tried searching the way I walked last night but didn't see it. I was tyring the Coin/jewelry setting. What setting would be best for just looking for a gold ring and how should it register on the LCD? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated as I am just sick with the loss. I thought I would try here first and if you think I should list this in Lost and found please let me know.
    I'd greatly appreciate your help. I'm so sick about it and being a novice and not feeling confidant at all with my ability doesn't help.
    Thanks a million!

    Is it a Small Ring (Thin) Or Wide Band ?

    If it's a wide band. Coin & jewelry Should work.

    to make sure, Test a Nickle & make sure you can pick up a Nickle.

    If a Thin Band. see if you can test one like it.
    Maby a Friends, if you don't have one like it.

    This should Help give you an Idea of what to listen for.

    I'm not familiar with that Detector, So maby someone who is may help fruther.
    Or maby even someone close to you may be willing to stop by & help.

    Good Luck !

    I understand your feelings but don't worry about being a newbie, we all started there.

    The gold ring should show up in the pull tab area or nickel. If it was a small white gold it could show up near foil. I would search in the relic setting and check out the grass on everything from foil up to penny.

    Make sure you had it on when you carried out the trash. Check around where you set the trash when you took it out. It wasn't left in the bathroom when you washed your hands was it? What were you doing before you took out the trash. Many times people that lose a ring only think of what they were doing when they noticed it missing and lock on to that thought when they could have lost it earlier.

    good luck,

    Remember that a ring could roll when dropped. Look on either side of the path you took. Also think about how it might have come off. Did the bag of trash you took out pull it off? If so, maybe look in the receptacle where you deposited the bag. The key is to keep cool and think. You have a great detector, but only if you use your head. That's the best detecting tool you've got!

    Also remember rings Can Fly

    In other words, Don't be Surprised if you find it a good distance from where you thought it came off.

    And if there is Brush it can Hang also

    Re: Please help with XLT and lost wedding ring

    Thanks for the tips guys! The ring is between 1\4''-3\8" approx thick 14 k yellow gold with stones. I'm thinking it came off like some of you suggested possibly when I set the trash down a few times to catch my breath or when I tossed them over the front fence to the place where the cans are. We looked real good in the road to see if it could have landed there and yesterday I tried to look in the ditch across the street but didn't come up with anything. I'm not going to give up but I really wish I was better with the machine. This spring I want to join a club to learn more about the hobby. If any of you know of an honest person that knows what they are doing that may be interested in helping me look for this for a reward of course, I would appreciate you sending me their contact info. I live in a small town about 20-30 minutes south of Tulsa Oklahoma. Thanks for all of the help and advice and if you think of anything else please let me know.
    Thanks!

    I don't know that detector, but it seems to me run it in all metal and low sensitivity since it can't be deep.. It should be right on the surface unless stepped on when searching for it..

    Re: Please help with XLT and lost wedding ring

    Did u keep the trash u were taking out or did it go to the dump?

    If u kept it make sure u detect it also, making sure it didn`t stick to some can or whatnot inside.
