Probably my best find

Not the most expensive find, but an awesome piece of antique jewelry. There is a small mine cut diamond in the center dating to the late 1800s according to my jeweler friend. There are two small emeralds on either side. It is sterling silver and estimated to be about 100 years old. It was fairly shallow in the dry sand and had no corrosion and was intact, so I think it was a recent drop. Probably someones heirloom piece and figured that they would be sick about losing it. Called the local paper lost and found as well as the sheriff who enforces this beach. No reports of a lost bracelet.

That is Beautiful! Very Nice Save!! Saltwater beach or fresh water beach? I've found some very clean sterling at fresh water beach's that have been closed for 60 years.
But silver n sterling does not do well in the saltwater here :cry:

2018 .. 46 Gold rings..........128 Silvers.

Yes it is very intricate Bootyhound. I think they call it a lace pattern. The bracelet was found on a saltwater beach OldBeechNut. One of the reasons that I thought it was a relatively fresh drop was that it was intact with no corrosion. I cleaned it up a little and had the jeweler friend fix the clasp which is why it was lost in the first place.
