When I was metal detecting at the swan river last week, there was a sandy playgound for kids right on the riverbank, the type of playgrounds, with swings, slides, monkey bars and all the other stuff kids like to play on. I thought I’d give the metal detector a bit of a swing there on my way back to the car, because I know that kids playgrounds are a great place to metal detect, because the kids lose money from the pockets, when they are swinging upside down on the monkey bars, their mums lose their rings as they are playing with their kids, jewellery falls off as the kids play rough with their mums and dads… and so much more.
So it proved a lucky day, not only did I find plenty of coins down the river bank, but I found myself this beautiful silver ring, with some tiny stones and one big stone. They are not real diamonds, but I wished they were, because the big stone is huge. I feel that it may be a wedding ring, because the design is so beautiful and intricate, I may be wrong, but nethertheless, it is a beautiful ring, and the photos don’t do it justice. So I’d say a kids Mum lost it as they were catching their small child at the bottom of a slide, because thats where I found the ring … at the bottom of a slide.

Once again I found another nice Silver Ring whilst metal detecting on a Beach in Perth.
Looks like it had been in the water for some time due to the discoloration of the ring, I did not find it in the water, but just on the wet sand where the waves were washing onto the shore. I did not spend much time on the beach, it only took me a few minutes to find it, but if I had more time, I am pretty sure I would have found more rings and jewellery, because the water was so calm, and there were good sand washouts where the tide had been, and thats the spots I have had alot of luck find rings whilst metal detecting on beaches.
Anyhow, it’s always great to find a nice ring, I also found around $10 in loose coins.
Can’t wait to hit the beaches again, probably this week, if all works out well!
I was in Perth the other day and decided to hit the beach for a few hours of metal detecting. The night before a big storm front came through so I knew I would have a good chance of finding some jewellery and coins.
I decided to go to Sorrento Beach, because I had been there before doing a search for a guys lost wedding ring, but unfortunately could not find it, so I go back to the beach, hoping I still may find it by some miraculous chance.
Anyhow, I found plenty of coins and a few pieces of jewellery including a small silver toe ring.
A while back, whilst Beach Metal Detecting with my Minelab E-Trac Detector, I found a great little spot on the beach where the sand had been washed away, and new that it would be a perfect spot to find some lost treasure!
I actually found alot of treasure, namely gold and silver rings and lots of coins.
Anyhow here is the silver ring I found, a beautiful girls matching hearts silver ring, it was likely given to her by her boyfriend and she lost it swimming.
