Managed to get over to the east coast for some hunting with my TDI on Saturday. Storms have stripped a couple feet of sand from the beach since the last time I was there. Started out hitting a lot of iron so switched to Gb mode/high conductor. Dug a bunch of clad dimes. As the targets thinned out I decided to turn the GB off to get the deeper and wider detection field. When I got a hit, I turned the GB back on ro try to weed out the ferrous. Worked pretty good. Played for about five hours. Take: two junk rings, one junk pendant, one nickle, 10 pennies, 4 quarters and 17 dimes. Nothing old. Plus the usual beach trash. Used the stock coil. All wet sand, no surf. Nice way to spend the day

Got the loupe out today and looked closer at the rings. One is a Tiffany & Co. 0.925 ladies ring. Not dainty at all, which made me think it was a (nice) junker. Has a tiny little diamond chip(?) in it , too. Guess I will clean it up and give it to my daughter. So, make that one junker ring and one nice heavy silver ring.

Not a lock, but general rule is small stones are usually genuine in a solid silver or gold/plat setting. The bigger it is the more likely to be man made. Right?
