Item Found: Jewelry

Location: California

Metal Detector Used: Beach Series (NONE)


September 1st, 2009

Hi White’s,

I got up at 2:30 AM in anticipation of recent beach activity and the fact that my chances of finding a good item had increased due to heavy beach use. I got out to the beach around 3:00 AM as I scanned I found some coins, bobby pins, nails, Etc.

When all of the sudden I got a crispy hit no double beep. So I dug down in the sand about 11 inches and to my amazement this canary yellow antique natural sapphire ring set in 14KT gold rolled out onto the sand like a little football. When I looked at it I could not believe my eyes.

Thanks White’s for making such a great beach machine!!

John B.
