A Walk in the Park and a Diamond Ring

Got out for a few hours with the X-TERRA 705 yesterday. First I did some target comparisons between my X-TERRA 70 & the X-TERRA 705, and then just hunted with the X-TERRA 705 for the remainder of the hunt. Two hours hunting and this diamond ring was one of the results.

The ring made my day. Usually finds of this nature are made at the beach. This is my first gold diamond ring ever at a park. 14kt with 24 - 1 point baguettes that I believe are diamonds. The X-TERRA 705 read it as a nickel (10/12 target ID but also bounced to 8 & 14). Four inches down I expected to get a nickel and was very pleasantly surprised to get the ring.
