Yesterday afternoon my wife went outside to see what in the world our miniature Dachshund was digging around about. Well, this ring was in the pile of dirt he excavated.
It is 14K gold with two dolphins holding the stone. Why did I spend all that money on my metal detectors, I have a dog that sniffs out gold!
Not a high dollar ring, but more then I have found lately.
The only things I have found in this yard are old rusty tools, nails, nuts, bolts, old spark plugs and pop tops.

    Hey Kerry I am afraid of dogs !!!!! Just getting my ring back that I lost will work better :-) Don't worry packrat I won't tell mum is the word here LOL
  6. Budek Budek, 6 years ago
    After a story like that, I just have to love this ring!
    Thanks for posting the heartwarming tale,....and give the dog a kiss for me:)
    Now if only I could train the cats to find something like that, instead of throwing everything, and many nice things, out of reach under the stove,'s like their little Smithsonian under there.

    Thank you very much mrcolorz, Manikin, BELLIN68, walksoftly, kerry10456, vanskyock24, scandinavian_pieces, Budek & PhilDavidAlexanderMorris.
    I will take a photo of Quinn and have an update soon.
    Thank you everybody for looking.

    Budek, move the stove, you might be a rich man!!!
  9. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    Gotta love it. How did you clean it up so fast?
  10. packrat-place packrat-place, 6 years ago
    Thank you for looking. Just soap & water and an old toothbrush.
  11. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    To bad this site doesn't allow free expression. My thread on learning research was deleted. I suspect a thread on learning to clean finds would meet the same end. They did reply and told me I wasn't the first to suggest it!!! SO who is listening to members????
  12. scottvez scottvez, 6 years ago
    Tied to an object, I'd think you'd be good to go.

    Educational posts tied to an antique/ collectible would certainly fit the "Show and Tell" category.

  13. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
    I think cleaning is important part of learning . I am wondering about cleaning a Pearl in soap and water . We want to learn so please share fhrjr2 on these piece . Since it is mine as I dropped it at packrats house I want to be sure he did it right :-)
  14. michelleamieux michelleamieux, 6 years ago
    Does that mean your dog just proposed to you? What a nice present from the pooch! Very sweet story, Mich
  15. michelleamieux michelleamieux, 6 years ago
    I'm pretty sure I sold that ring on E-Bay to a customer named Fido Spot. His CC did not go through...blast it... yeah, yeah, that's the story, and i'm stickin' to it... Mich
  16. Budek Budek, 6 years ago
    Michelle, with that wonderful comment you made me smile:)
    and Packrat, if I move the stove I probably will be a rich man indeed.
    Lucky, the tuxedo kitty, steals my pens, pencils, brushes,....anything shiny.
    and she parades in front of the stove if you look interested in what's underneath it.
    It's hysterical, really.
    Have a great night everyone!

    I guess even little kitties need their "secret garden", too!! Mich

    I don't see how soap & water could hurt it, then, on the other hand, I am not a jewelry guy either. I do not even know for sure if it is a pearl. I jumped the gun here, I should have done some preliminary investigation into cleaning methods, as I only want the best for YOUR ring, Mani!!!
    You are correct, cleaning and restoration are a very important aspect of all of our mutual interests. We all have various tricks and methods pertaining to certain areas we have picked up over the years, and I feel a forum just to discuss and share methods would be great.
    Thank you very much for visiting michelleamieux, Budek, Manikin, scottvez, fhrjr2, PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, BELLIN68, scandinavian_pieces , lsjewels, vanskyock24, kerry10456, walksoftly & mrcolorz for visiting and your input.

    Gee this post showed up today I think to remind pack it has never arrived here :-) no need to clean it . I guess the dog re buried it huh and when I lost it there he is guarding it from me :-(
  22. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    Must be lost in the mail! Lost twice, amazing.
  23. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    Darn mail service anyway . Maybe I will send my 4ft parrot out looking for it :-)
  24. Kathycat Kathycat, 5 years ago
    No Mani, it's my ring. I was walking my dog by his house, when the damn ring fell off. I live "almost" right around the block from him. LOL
    PS. So Return to Sender! LOL
  25. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    Oh Kathy but I lost it on a visit there before you moved next to him lol
  26. Kathycat Kathycat, 5 years ago
    Oh Mani, I made a mistake I said I was walking my dog. How silly of me, I don't even have a dog. I was walking my DOLLS! LOL
  27. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    LOL Kathy I was metal detecting at packs :-)
  28. Kathycat Kathycat, 5 years ago
    OK you GOT Me! I'll have to somehow just claim the other two pieces of jewelry he just put on CW. LOL
  29. packrat-place packrat-place, 5 years ago
    Geeee....for a minute there I thought I was getting real popular, then I realized it was the ring and the dog... oh well.................back to obscurity.
  30. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
