    Condom wrappers lead to first Gold Ring, 10K (updated- *real diamonds)

    It's true.

    I was hunting a park today for a couple of hours and I was feeling beat from the heat and totally annoyed at the 100+ teenagers running around, playing a game (I was there first), so I moved to another part of the park and hunted for probably an hour or so. I was drenched and wasn't really finding much so I walked back to where my bag was next to a big tree. Before I call it quits for the day, I usually dig one last good signal so I figured I'd do just that. I looked at the ground next to my bag and saw 3 condom wrappers and I thought 'someone had a good time', then I thought hell, they might have dropped something during their roll in the hay... Just as I was about to start swinging the detector, I looked down and saw a ring . I sat ther for a second in amazement, then grabbed it. I saw that it had a stamp on the inside and there were glittering stones on it but I just dropped it in my pocket knowing that I'd look at it when I got home.

    When I got home I looked at the ring through a loupe and saw a 10K stamp on it. There's also 5 stones but I have no clue if these are diamonds or not I will definitely be bringing this to a jeweler on monday for confirmation.

    Update: The diamonds are real

    Total ground score... Made my day

    Metal detecting is Like A Marathon, Your Running fast then start Slowing A Bit The You Find Something Interesting And You Pick Up the Pace!!! The Only Difference is If You Are Addicted to this Hobby there Is NO FINISH LINE HH Chug And Red

    Considering what you found, I think it's safe to say it wasn't a shotgun wedding ring
    The first thing you need to remember about running away is, it's the "from" that's important.  The "to" can take care of itself.

    Heck yeah those are diamonds! They are small, so no doubt they are real.
    I am guessing that with the condom wrappers nearby, that all the bouncing around dislodged the ring off of the hand. ((Wink!))

    I know basically nothing about jewelry unless I see a stamp but I figured the same thing on the stones since they were so small. Going out of town today to a small town festival but I'll bring the ring and stop into a jeweler if I see one and have them give a look.

    On this one, I'm gonna have to be the glass is half full kinda guy.
    Due to the fact it's a 10k gold ring, I would be extremely surprised
    if they were real diamonds, regardless of the size of the stones. But,
    real or not, it's a very nice ring.
