    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.

    I think I would need immediate CPR if I found something like that.

    Danny is on his way, find MORE!
