The goldsmith, Grant Logan, told him that he’s been lucky. “A lot of people spend a lifetime panning in Scotland without finding enough for a ring.”
The rings may have cost John a bargain of £500, but with all the work he did to get them, it came as not surprise that his girl perceived them to be priceless. She shared, “I feel very proud of John and very lucky.”
The bands were engraved with a proud Scottish Gold, which could greatly increase their value, as gold in the area is relatively rare and not commercially available.
