Gold Ring With Diamond Found With Teknetics Eurotek-Pro Metal Detector
By Allie Alberts
I went to a completely new stretch of beach on the South Coast KZN at 06:00 in the morning on a Saturday that I have not detected.
My plan was to just stroll and get about 3 hours behind me as we were entertaining my wife’s sister’s little daughter.
I took the Teknetics Eurotek-Pro, and the rest of the family took a walk on the beach.
This is not a busily frequented swimming beach.
The beach was loaded with driftwood from a previous storm that lasted a week.
I did not expect much but took on the hunt.
I dug a small piece of metal, a R1 coin on my second dig, and this beautiful ring on my 3rd dig! Must have been busy 5 minutes!
It was approximately 15 cm under the wood and sand mix. I had a solid 60 reading on my Metal Detector. I do not know if it washed out with the rubble, or if someone lost it there, but that was the last place I expected to find this!
I had it validated, and the insurance value came to R17200.
It was a 9ct white gold ring, with a 0.25ct natural main diamond, with 19 round diamonds surrounding it.
