I'm back from the dead - stupid job has been making me work and the lovely life has been insisting I finish the two cars I have torn apart, lowering our property values. But my boy and I occasionally have been sneaking away to an elementary school near us for a quick hunt. It's never been touched from what I can see and it's always good for several coins, which keeps my son coming back. But the other night, we found this dinky little ring, which made us happy as-is, but then we brought it home only to find out it was gold! 10K, to be sure, and still pretty dinky, but it was thrilling nonetheless. And finding it with my boy made it extra-special...and a bonus is that "A" is the initial of his first name!

Congrats, always nice bringing in a little gold. I've got years and years of metal detecting and only have two gold rings under my belt. I hope you have many more to come.

I like the design on the side. Work cut back my detecting time this year as well but I think it makes me more focused when I do get out. I got more jewelry and rings than last year but not even half the time out.

Nice gold ring, congrats! Extra special finding it with your son, and the bonus of have it be his first initial. So he will be wearing it and always be thinking of that day with you. Extra special…
