First try with new format!
After a month of hunting some Florida beaches, I hit silver,gold, ice and fire! Yesterday, Tuesday, I found a 925 silver ring with what appear to be three garnets at Venice Beach. Later in the afternoon I finally got a parking space at Siesta Beach and after some water hunting, which got a Tungsten carbide ring and a cheap band and ear ring with stones, I headed to car and hit a 14k ring with 3 rubies, the wife's birthstone!:hello2: Got them with the Excal. Went back for the DFX and got a cheap gold ear ring and what appears to be a white gold ring with 2 rows of 15 baugette diamonds. There does not seem to be a mark of any sort in the ring but may have worn off. It is quite heavy and read a strong 30 on the DFX. First gold in 2 years! Not enough time out I guess! Thanks for looking!!
Today's find is the silver necklace also reading about 30 on DFX, HH Lloyd

Hey Lloydd, very nice! Our version of Siesta beach out here is pretty much over and done with. the Park Service leveled the area, people are still finding the occasional coin/small ring, but it's a lot harder than when you were here.
Congrates!

Few can pay for a metal detector with your luck and perseverance. Way to do it well! They do pay for themselves, name another hobby that can do what we do? Vera beach after storm!:skullflag::skullflag::skullflag:
