6 inches in water.....
On land we could figure about 50 years. What is the general concensus for water?

That is a monstrosity of a ring! congrats.

While I was still in the water, I laid the ring down to check the signal it was putting out. I went over it a couple of times and then bent down to pick it up, and it was already buried in the sand.

Believe it or not, I did an internet search for someone losing a ring there, with no luck, or a lot of luck depending how you look at it.

No, it is bad luck if someone else has your ring on.

As I stated earlier, I am not sure that it was not cast into the lake on purpose.

I'd say it's 2.5 - 3 carats.

I believe you are right Darkgold.

I found this diamond size chart,
and my rough measurements show it to be at least 2.0 +
I should be able to get an appraisal this coming weekend.

Did you ever get that ring appraised? I'm dying to know, what was the actual carat wt.?
Oct 04, 2012, 09:21 PM
Not yet. I am working out of town and have only been home about a week since I found the ring. My wife loves the ring and wears it everyday. So far I have not been able to get her to have it appraised. She is afraid of it being taken from her since I do not have a receipt , or bill of sale. She is afraid it was lost and then turned in as being stolen for insurance purposes. I would like to know myself, so I'll take care of it when I'm home.

It is not bad luck to have someone else's ring on your finger.
Bad luck is when your ring is on someone else's finger.
