Pinky Ring

I stopped by a local park today for about an hour.

I had 96 cents in clad and a .925 silver pinky ring. Its marked "Made in Ireland". I researched it, and its a Claddagh ring. They sell new for about 40 bucks. The silver melt value on the spot market is only $1.71.

I showed it to my girlfriend and its now on her pinky finger.

That's the last time I'm showing her any jewelry I find. The next ring might be heavy gold. Hey, she has her own detector...she can find her own jewelry.

Yup, that's the one..........the one that I used to own.

But, she's a good woman, so I guess I can splurge $1.71 on her.

Re: Pinky Ring

If I took up the hobby, all my finds would be marked like the coin in your pic..... "No Cash Value".

Ha! That is a WWII eagle token and while it had no value back then, it now carries a $6-$8 value!

Re: Pinky Ring

What does the ring with the heart, crown, and 2 hands stand for? I've seen them a couple times before but never knew the significance....

According to the current owner of MY pinky ring:

The hands mean friendship. The heart means love. The crown means loyalty.

Re: Pinky Ring

Watch how your ladies wear those rings! If the point of the heart points toward the person wearing it, it means her heart is taken or she is attached to someone. If the bottom of the heart points away she is looking or open to dating. Google claddaugh and there is some neat history behind it
