    JACKPOT! PT 900 with Diamonds -Update- Diamond Test Result!

    My usual detecting beach hunt which is a daily ritual. Had a few clad and some little cars but no rings.

    After quite a few recent disappointing heart breaking finds got this Heavy Silvery ring with a gem. Looked very good in the scoop. I quickly slipped it into my pocket and didn't confirm what it was since I had another half hour to detect.

    Well I kept trying to not get too excited and I was still amazingly able to wait til I got back to the car. First look and my heart sank ... looked like corrosion on the bottom ...arghhh.

    But got my glasses off (I'm near-sighted) and looked more carefully. The corrosion was decorative engraving and there on the inside no karat marking but only PT900.

    Well OK..then I lost it! There's a huge diamond and 2 medium size and 6 little emerald cut. The engraving on the sides looks to indicate an oldie.


    Found in dry sand shallow, about 3" deep with my Surfmaster PI+.

    UPDATE: Now that my hands have stopped shaking I have another better photo. Hoping to get a reading on that big diamond today ..will post as soon as I know (say 4pm Calif time). HH Joe

    UPDATE 2: My good buddy Dan (Captn SE) met me with his diamond tester. He checked the 8 smaller diamonds AND....YES!! REAL!!
    Then the Big One........................nothing....................... What the heck .. is your machine working? Try again ... still nothing .... Arghhh it's NOT diamond!
    Well, I need a 2nd opinion but it sure looks like they put a CZ in a Platinum ring. Why? Why? Why?

    Re: JACKPOT! PT 900 with Diamonds

    Looks very similar to my wifes engagement ring minus the emeral cuts and I think hers is just marked PLAT. You did very well. This is why I purchased a nice silver ring for my wife to wear to the beach just so she would not lose the real thing.

    Congratulations on an awesome ring.
