Thread: New Ring

  1. #1

    New Ring

    I dug this one yesterday while hunting with a driftwood and his son. It was a jumpy fortyish signal on my v3i under two pieces of rusty wire. I'm guessing the S inside two circles means that it's gold plated silver?? The stones are frosty unless you get them wet and then they are transparent. Any thoughts on what it is would be appreciated!

    Thanks for looking

    Not sure on the symbol in the ring, but the stones could just be frosted glass or frosted clear quartz. Those are the first two choices that come to mind! Nice ring though.
