Nice finds!  Seems weird for a clasp to be high quality gold and the remainder be plated/etc.  I'm betting the crucifix is a precious metal.

What is the white (silver?) coin above and slightly to the right of the East Africa coin?

I gotta say you beach & water hunters have it a lot more difficult than we dry land park/school detectorists, in so many ways.  But also seems like you get rewarded more significantly for your efforts.

Saw a cross just like that right before Christmas at Kays jewelers and it was 2 toned gold. The diamonds were a nice touch and I am betting that you have a 14 k cross all the way around.

Great finds keep up the good work and what was the other ring.

I did a reverse image search and didn't come up with a match with the wired area on the top end of the cross.  I didn't have to clean it.  Most religious pieces I find especially Catholic seem to be on the modest gold content.  This one is not solid but I think that makes it more wearable.

The other ring is junk.  It is some type of corroded pot metal with flashy little glass 'stones' with reflectors behind the glass.

I think you are right.  I've looked at it closely and it has precious metal and a bit of craftsmanship written on it.

That is one of the 5 dollar coins.

I hunt areas available to me and I live half a mile from the beach.  If I didn't go detecting I might not see the beach!  haha

Beautiful cross.  Looks to be white gold and yellow gold....what tone was it or ID#?  I've saved a couple gold rings with white and yellow,  a white/yellow money clip and my hunting partner was with me in MX and dug a white gold wristband with yellow gold as well.  The diamonds are way cool too.

      The wife and I spent a night at a small town beach area back in mid Feb...we brought our detectors just for fun...not my first pick as it's cold and windy most of the time with not many people  but my wife likes these areas north of Petaluma as she grew up in that area...Lisa was learning her new Nox 800...she found a few coins and lots of trash...I got lucky as I did not expect to find a gold ring...at first I thought it was 10K but it acid tests 14K like it's stamped....not the prettiest ring but gold is gold....the little one is silver.... some lady and her 5 year old daughter were on their hands and knees watching as I sifted it out of the sand...they were as surprised as I was..

      Hit the football field close to home today for a few hours. About 20 minutes in, a strong 7/8 blared out. Down about 1-2 inches was the 14K ring. Only change after that, but it was great to find gold again. 15" Equinox coil covering ground again today; love that coil.

      So, went back out with the Equinox today to the park that had a lot of change. I hit a spot this time that was busier the last time I was at the park. There were many pieces of flat metal littered all over the place which gave very nice sounding 23's on the display. Almost $4 in change in 1 1/2 hours today. There was also a screaming 11/12 that was so sweet. Imagine my smile when I flipped the plug up and saw the yellow edge gleaming in the sun. As in most things, don't count your chickens before they're hatched. The ring is a golden specimen of electroplated stainless steel. 🙁 Almost at the vehicle I had a 27/28 on the display. I dug down about an inch in the grass and came up with a 1964 dime. Still more grass to cover and jewelry to find!

      Was out today using the 15" on a local softball field. Park 1, 18 sensitivity, all metal, 7 recovery speed, 0 iron bias, ground balanced.
      Granted, I could have found this with my first detector, an Ace 100, but the 15" on the Equinox sure covers the ground. This ring was at most 1" deep. I knew it was either a few quarters or a silver ring. I was just thinking today as I was detecting before finding this that my silver ring count was low; I have found more gold than silver. Ironic. And no, I am not complaining.😉

      I haven’t been getting out as much compared to last year.  This is my first gold for the year and first silver (1858 seated dime). I got to the beach at 5 am for low tide and surprisingly I was the only Detectorist out there.  Maybe the slight rain and the lack of sand movement kept everyone else at home.  There were almost no targets on the wet sand but somehow I managed to snag this 14k bracelet. The silver dime, Indian head and most coins were from a spot that has given up a few oldies in the past.  Good luck out there and HH.

      I recently returned from a MD’ing trip to Cancun and the 3 of us used Minelab Equinox detectors.
      Finds included 100’s of coins, probably 10+ pairs of sun glasses, with 1 of them being Ray-Bans, 2 cell phones, numerous ear rings with 1 of them being 14K gold and another was a diamond stud.  Chains, bracelets and metals, some broken and others hole.  Over 30+ rings with many sterling, a few of the modern Tungsten and Stainless wedding bands and even gold rings (both white and yellow gold).  2 rings really popped out that were both 14K gold.  One was the blue sapphire with diamonds and the other a wedding ring with a nice 1+ karats of diamonds.  Even the 1st time lady digger scored a nice 14K white gold wedding band with a couple cool sterling rings.  I managed 21 of the 30 rings so I won't complain but the amount of gold was certainly off my standards.  Pic of rings on my hand were the ones I found minus a sterling that broke when being tumbled.
      We all enjoyed the warm weather, water and experience.  The Equinox detectors performed as hoped.
      Used Beach Mode #1, GB on, open screen by pushing the Horseshoe, SENS around 17 to 19 and Threshold so I can hear it.  All other settings were FP.
      What amazes me is the gold to modern metal ratio.  The resorts I hunt used to produce more gold than modern metals and now it has flipped.  in years past, I'd come back with 15 or 20 gold rings on a weeks hunt and never a modern Stainless or Tungsten.  Now it seems I'll get more of them than I actually do the gold ones?  Well the wife still likes going down there so I might as well get used to it and realize 5, 6 and 7 Gold ring days are long gone at those places.  Guess I'll jump into a lake and follow BeechNut around as his gold ring counts are still good.
