Item Found: Jewelry

Location: Oklahoma

Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0326)


July 1st, 2013

White's Electronics,

Two years of hunting city parks with my MXT Pro has yielded 83 rings ranging from adult costume jewelry style and children's rings to quality 10k and 14k gold rings. Most coming from the wood chips surrounding the playground equipment. The wood chips are easy to dig and a great place to hunt when the clay soil dries out and gets hard as rock in the Oklahoma summer.

Some of the better finds include a fine filigree 10K gold ring with a large initial "S," two 14K yellow gold and white gold "mother's" rings with the children's birthstones mounted in them, and a very small 10K gold ring with a nice cut amethyst crystal mounted in it. One ring was a 10K gold lover's promise ring with a 1/20th carat diamond in the mount. Rings stamped 925 for sterling silver have also been found with one sporting five natural pearls and another a large men's ring. One skull ring, although not silver, was attached to a large 22 inch solid sterling silver chain to be worn around the neck.

The kids wear all types of rings. A lot are just cheap gold and silver colored bands of base metals but occasionally 10k gold rings with one of their initials carved in it turns up. It's like digging pulltabs, you have to dig the cheap rings to find the real gold and silver ones. There's even the occasional toe ring to be found.

The MXT PRO metal detector is a great ring hunter in both the coin/jewelry and relic hunting modes giving great depth at finding items. In between finding rings there are a lot of lost coins to dig.

Paul (OK)
