It's been more than a week of negative tides here in the New York/ New Jersey area, so I was able to make 7 low water hunts wading. My wife was with me for the plain band in the bottom picture, after 3 hours of bottle caps and rotten clad I found it in the very shallow water. 10K 1.6G.
The top ring that looks worn and has a heart on it is 14K, not heavy, I haven't weighed it. I was by myself getting out of the water in the dark when I had a fantastic 13 on my equinox. I felt it in the mud in the sifter but couldn't see it until I got back to the truck.
The very nice silver ring was with a friend, between us that was all we found in 3 hours, the beach was so nice and new to us we went back two days later. I found nothing, he banged out 3, 14K rings in 15 minutes. He deserved each one of them!
The ring with the stars is very well made but it's not silver or gold, I was alone on a beach I've seen hundreds of times when I found it between rocks that would be under water all year except during the lowest tides. This beach was a bathing area from the 1880's up until the mid 1900's. I'll go back there any time!
The "Not Engraved" floral 10K ring is beautiful. it took a few hours in the tumbler to get the tarnish off, but it came out great. If you zoom in on the side view, there's about a 5/8" long plate added to the back of the band. I've never seen that before it is either a very well-made ring or well sized by a jeweler.
The best for last, the big friggin mamajama school ring is the heaviest ring I've ever found, and I knew it before it came out of the sifter. I try to be quiet but no kidding I was screaming to my hunt partner so loud you could have heard me hundreds of yards away. I was actually embarrassed later on. Its 10K and 28.7G. College of St. Francis 1951. I'm 99% sure I found him, but he passed away in 2015. He had a very unique name so I'm as positive as I can be.
Thats it, 6 rings in 7 days along with pounds of sinkers a lot of clad and a handful of bottle caps.
