A Ring in Hand is Better Than Toes in the Sand

By: Stephen S.


After I bought my Garrett AT Pro from Kellyco in 2016, it sat almost unused in my closet due to work and family obligations until this year when I was laid off due to COVID. Since I now had much more time on my hands, I decided to learn everything I can about my AT Pro and detecting techniques - and it didn't disappoint. On just my 10th trip out to the beach, I thought I would find the usual handful of change and maybe some toy cars again or something, but this time I found an awesome 18k gold women's custom-made ring with two small diamonds and a ruby - FINALLY MY FIRST RING! What a great find! Much thanks to Stevie Ray @Kellyco for giving me a brief tutorial on the AT Pro back in 2016. I took notes then and it REALLY came in handy this trip!
