Hello White's,

My name is Chad and a few days ago I found a ring that I'm sure most people will never find. I called my mom to see who owned the lot behind her house. When I was growing up there was a big old white two story house there, which has been torn down now and all that is there is an open lot.

I contacted the owners and they said we could hunt on the lot. The first time Kristina my wife) and I went we found 37 wheat pennies, 11 silver dimes, and 3 silver quarters. This is a big yard so we went back the next day. We found a few more coins, but I got a ring signal on my MXT, it was right by a bush. I decided to dig anyways!

I kept throwing the bigger stuff to the side, but every time I moved the stuff I lost my signal. I found that the signal was coming from a stick? I was about ready to throw it because I had just spent 15 minutes trying to find what I thought might be a ring and it was a stick. I decided to see if it was a nail or barbwire, when I removed the dirt, I saw diamonds.

I was really excited, I called to my wife and to both of our surprise the root had grown through the ring. The ring is a 14kt white gold diamond ring. That proves that whatever you find take the time to look and see what it is, it might just pay off.
