    Re: First Gold Ring

    To answer one of the questions - I don't think the stones are real because I think one of them has a crack in it, and correct me if I'm wrong - but diamonds should be a bit harder than that? LOL! I will have it checked out for certain - to be 100% - just in case. It's for sure a real gaudy thing and I'm glad I don't have to wear it! HA!

    I used the Radio Shack MD 3005 model to find these. (It works - but hopefully I can afford a better one someday.)

    Had some more luck today - found a sterling silver ring in the same area. Overslept my alarm and only had about a 45 minute hunt before I had to bike over to work this afternoon. (Plus 53 cents in change - LOL!) I really want to go back on Saturday morning and try again for a good couple hours and see if anything else may be found there.

    My humble thanks for all the wonderful encouragement and congrats on the last find! You are all so nice!

    Re: First Gold Ring

    I just looked up the maker of the ring, a company called "The Bell Trading Post" (New Mexico).

    Interesting. I've never seen a ring with such a big 'attachment'. It's hard to tell whether stones are attached to a band or vice versa I don't understand much in jewellery but I believe it's cocktail ring of 1950's. Check it with some jeweller. Maybe the stones are zircons or something else. Congrats on the ring

    I wanted to have this checked out and stopped in at a pawn shop - the sales associate did a quick test and said the gold was real but the stones were not. She also offered me $50 bucks, but I declined as I would rather hold on to it for now. That and I wanted to find out how old it was first. (tuatara - I'll bring it to a jeweler and see what they can tell me. Thanks for the clues on the cocktail ring search avenue!)

    Actually, I like that old jack. I forgot all about those.

    Eyeballing the stones I would lean towards them not being diamonds, but, that is a great hunk of gold!

    Nice work!
