This past Sunday my detecting partners and I were out detecting a local park my V3i was picking through the maze of targets pulling out all the solid signals as I was getting coins, pull tabs, foil and pieces of shredded aluminum can.

Out in the middle of an open space in the middle of the park I received a hit of 17 with big solid bars on the screen of my machine. I went to pinpoint mode and viewed another good target signal on the polar plot. When I probed the ground I was having a hard time finding the target so I pulled out my electronic pinpointer and discovered the target was near the surface.

I made a small incision in the turf, pulled the grass pack a couple of inches and there was a nice looking ring in the root system of the grass. I have been having a bit of a dry spell on making any good finds so I assumed it was just costume jewelry and placed in my pouch and walked towards my hunting partners. Part way to them I had to stop and look at the ring, it felt heavy when I pulled it out of my pouch.

Upon looking at the ring with my loop I could see 14 kt stamped into the band. My partners and I have a deal that whoever makes the best find of the day has to buy ice cream for the group, they were happy for my recovery and I now owe them ice cream.

When I got home I cleaned the ring a bit and showed it to my wife, she looked at it, smiled and tried it on. It fit her. I have been asked to search for many lost pieces of jewelry over the last few years and all that I have found have been returned. This find is one that I just happened upon and it is nice to finally take one for for me, well my wife really.
