Someone that works with my wife, his daughter lost her wedding rings last Sunday while playing in the waves in Lake Michigan. They gave me an area about the size of a football field to narrow my search--lol but after 4 days of searching I was able to return the set today also see the extras that came up while searching-- titanium, 2 silver rings(one claimed by my wife already),one unmarked gold,and the silver stud in the pic.tons of trash and aprox 25.00 in change. more important is it re-sparked my interest in the hobby, it felt good to get out and soak in the lake again. first time trying to post and with pics. hope this works, sorry about the pic quality-used my cellphone :pulltab::clapping:

Great job Mitch, looks like some killer mojo coming to hand too! Funny about that ring, looks alomst identical to Gulf Huntress's set, maybe we can get 'er to post her's for comparison. Excellent job!

The wedding set you found is very similar to mine.

It is the same ring guard, but different solitare. That is too cool! Great job! I need to get out and find some loot!
I have not hunted in quite awhile now. Just have not been impressed with the results. HH!
