Coinshooter / Jewelry Hunter

I look at it this way . . . One must be seeking jewelry in order to find jewelry.

My mental discrimination was a difficult thing for me to overcome, and i still have to work on it. I had to stop looking for reasons NOT TO RETRIEVE a target. Now, I look at it like ALL targets are possible rings. I use the audio and visual of my 800 to have a look at each signal asking myself if it could be a ring. If it COULD be a ring, I happily retrieve it. It makes a difference for me to think this way.

A little clarification here from the world according to rich - as detectorists, we can all stumble upon lost jewelry while we are detecting any given site. If you're a dig by numbers coinshooter, perhaps the jewelry fell into the nickel or regular coins region (US hunters) of your target ID. Or maybe you just dig all solid signals. In my mind, this is NOT hunting for jewelry, this is coinshooting / detecting with an incidental jewelry find. There is a very big difference.

In my mind, jewelry hunting is just that - hunting FOR jewelry in locations jewelry is most likely to be lost. Salt water beaches where people swim and sunbathe, for example. Many of the best beach hunters skip higher conductive coin signals to increase their odds of finding signals MORE LIKELY to be a gold ring. They don't want all of the targets, just the ones that might be a gold ring, necklace or other jewelry. The other targets just waste their time, literally.
