Thank you and it was good to get back out.again
With all the chores here I never think to get out and it was a good break.
If I go to a jewelry store what should I have them check on the stone
Go to a higher end place.
Just ask them if it's worth getting an insurance appraisal done.
They will tell you if the stone is real or not.

I have found in the past some will do it in house.
The chains will have it done at the headquarters.
Look up the local jewelry shop in your area that provides the service .

It was easy when we resided in Toronto.

Bought from both, had appraisals done by both.

Huge Congrats Bill! Yes, I was also wondering about that stone?
Thanks again I’ll have to get a appraisal
I hope that they won’t charge me a lot
Take care
This is going to be exciting to go thru this process

Great work bill....I knew you would be in the gold this summer....congrats on that gemstone and gold beauty !!
Thank You Bart.
I got a new pair of chest waders and
I would like to someday get a dry suit..
It’s not to often that I can find a nice ring but this one is a major accomplishment for me..
I hope your next hunt greets you with big rewards
Take care

I see in the background a lot of beach glass do you also find that with your metal detecting ADVENTURES

I never found any but my wife has when she used to live by the ocean.
She said that she had better results searching in stone or gravel beaches versus just sand.
I thought perhaps placing that ring on the table would be a nice setting.
