Default Love digging a turquoise ring!

Weatherman said it would be raining all day. Not true! I had a couple good hours of detecting today before it started, and about another hour before the lightning sent me packing. Found some decent clad, a few wheat pennies, a three heart bracelet, and a gorgeous little turquoise ring! In the silver ring category, turquoise is a favorite for me. This one has a really nice stone.

A lot of character in that turquoise, Foragist. Nice save!

Way to go, Blaise! Your turquoise ring is a nice find, and wheat cents are fun to uncover. Good hunt!

Thanks G-Sweeps. The clad count was a little over $10 too. That's my threshold for calling it a really good clad day.

Isn't that stone just awesome? Thanks Stiff. You've been known to dig some nice turquoise over there. Hope you get some doozies this year.

Thank you ecmo. This was ring number 7 this year, and my favorite so far.

You got that right! Pale blue, sky blue, monster reddish veining...a fine specimen. Thanks Jim.

Thank you Princess Chelsea. There were 3 wheat pennies from the front section of a school yard. I'll be trying to locate silver there in the future. I love finding a ring; even junkers...but especially special ones like this!

Ain't she though? Thanks S4TR!

Turquoise ring has been high on my list for a long time. I have dug a couple cheapies in the past, so I was really glad to see this stone shining! Thanks Mark, and hope you dig a dandy soon.

I know you know a beauty when you see it. It looks a little better after a cloth polish, but still needs a deep clean to really present nicely. Thank you Gale. FYI: The only marking is 925

Thank you! I'm going to say the ring is very pretty, but the stone is one of the most beautiful turquoise cabs I've ever seen.

Congratulations on the very nice turquoise ring. Looks like it was hand smithed.
I've made turquoise jewelry for many years and have a collection of turquoise cabs and some raw, untreated, turquoise. Among my favorite of all the stones because of the robinís egg blue color. Great find and worth taking a polish cloth to. Good luck!
