    Side view is not the best pic...sorry. This ring is not as gaudy as it looks in the pics and is actually quite impressive, at least my wife thinks so...she claimed it.

    I found it yesterday Dan....very, very, deep.

    Craig said it's a Ruby in a cabochon setting. Craig knowledge with rings is like your knowledge with coins.

    I believe this is the little gem Dan is referring to Stacey. I have hunted with Dan two times and he has brought me good luck both times. The 11 , 8 reale counterfeit cache ( that I'll never top ) and this ring. I should pay him to come hunting with me.

    That ring looks familiar Frank. I do recall pointing you to that area, same spot I pulled out a 1953 14k wedding band. I was so happy when you found it. The other ring looks like an oldie indeed, great score and nice to see you posting more gold. Love it
