Talking !UPDATED! Appraised at $450.00 15th Ring - V3i hits GOLD and DIAMONDS!!

Well The wife needed to do some shoping so she agreed to drop me off at one of my spots. And low and behold I get a perfect 14 VDI no bouncing, nothing. So I dug it and out popped this baby!!

It's made by Libman Company, has a stamp of "2" in it which means SI - Clarity & GH - Color! It has twelve of those diamonds! It's 14K and it WILL be getting appraised!!

I sure hope this roll I am on continues!!

I was sure hoping it would have appraised at more but it is $450.00 I didn't have before!!

Interested to see how it appraises! Nice job....awesome find! I dug a bunch of junk today at an old foundation of a house that was built many years ago. This place has been pounded for several years by the local yokels...but still had a few cool finds. Gettysburg, here I come!

Very nice...Congrats !....Was that VDI 14 in standard C&J program? Any tweaks ? Stock coil? I just picked up the 6x10 DD for my V3i. I've been finding a few silver coins, wheats, and two silver pieces of jewelry. I only ask because our soil is somewhat similar here, and I'm always on the lookout for settings that could improve on my first gold find. Any input would be appreciated.

You should talk to "tumbleinn" on the Whites Forum. He is from your area and VERY knowledgeable about the V31. If you get on there forum I am under "rizar33" there also.

I love the 6x10 on the V3i. It does a GREAT job of picking out the trash from treasure. I was using the C&J program but I had the RX up to 8 I think. I am always tweaking it to the current site so I am not surw what it is even set at right now.

Very nice! We need to see a "group photo" of all those rings if you haven't sold them yet. Making me think of reorganizing my detector closet...

Congratulations on a beautiful ring find. Not to sound dumb because I only found a couple of gold rings but where do you go to get a ring like that appraised? I'm guessing a jewelry store but do they charge for the appraisal?
