    Diamond ring found: updated pics


    Last Sunday I headed down to to the beach to detect while Hurricane Bill was passing up the coast. I met up with Bootybay and Boobird and a few other treasure hunters were also on the beach. there were huge cuts in the sand and I was hunting about 3 feet down, mostly in the wet sand.

    I met a guy named Dan who is in my South Jersey club and we chatted a bit. I said to him, " I don't know why I'm hunting here...I have never found anything good here yet." He went on his way...and not 5 minutes later I found this ring.

    I assumed it was fake as it had no markings and was so large. In a magnifier I couldn't find any flaws in it either. Well today I took it to the jeweler and he said..."THE DIAMOND IS REAL!!!!!" I started shaking. He said it is a cushion cut...1-1 1/4 carats maybe as high as 1 1/2 carats. He did not test the band...he said "what does it matter? the value is in the stone!" He estimated $4,000 if the smaller size and as much as $10,000 if it is 1 1/2 carats.

    Re: Diamond ring found during hurricane Bill

    I have had the same thing happen, thought I posted something and went back later to look and it was either never posted or just gone. I don't think the mod's deleted anything but maybe there is a glitch somewhere?

    Anyway, Awesome ring Definately banner worthy.

    Re: Diamond ring found during hurricane Bill

    Beautiful ring.....That is usually the way it happens, complain something never happens and it does.

    I made a bet with Cotton that Hurricane Bill wouldn't come with in 500 miles of the coast of central Florida. Purpose of the bet was for me to lose, have it come 490 miles off the coast, throw 8 foot waves on the beach, and give me some goddies............Just when I am counting on Murphy's law to bite me, and hurricane come 490 miles off coast, it does the opposite and goes by a thousand miles off shore.
