Default The ring mother load at one beach today

Went to one of my favorite beaches today and found a bunch. 8 rings this morning which is my record for one beach in 3 hours. 3 silver rings, one 14k gold ring, silver bracelet marked s990 which is almost pure silver and 4 other rings. Silver earring too.

Wow, looks like a stellar hunt, congratulations! As a predominately dirt digger, One think Iím quickly learning is that there are few things in the world that can compare to finding a ring looking at you in the scoop! That bracelet is neat, Iíd imagine itís quite rare to have bullion purity jewelry!

Great hunt. You may want to Google search the silver markings with the "S" before it. China is cranking out fakes , plated , with that mark.
