Well a crazy thing happened today. Exactly a year ago on January 1st I found a massive man’s gold ring in a old wooded site. Because of that I was joking around for awhile now with people that I need to go this years January 1st to try it again. Not expecting a thing this time let alone another gold ring. Well to my shock I was wrong. I found another man’s gold ring up in another old wooded site. Work had me tied up so much I didn’t really get to detect in over a month now. Sucks the trip today was cut very short because something came up but I left very happy regardless. Also I found a second ring today that’s not gold but looks to be very old with a nice red stone. Thanks for looking and a great start to 2022 for me! 😁👍

Nice!
You're making the best of the situation by getting an awesome gold ring in a short hunt again!
Great job!
I swear they are the best. My long planned day trips rarely pan out for me! Haha

The ring with the stone doesn't look like an expensive ring but none the less it was well made and held together all these years. Neat find.
No not expensive. I’ve dug sorta similar but usually broken or all squished flat. Your right I’m lucky this time it held together. Even the dig itself could’ve mess it up! 😁👍
