    24 karot Gold chain

    I took my new Nox 600 to the Delaware beaches today, Hit the surf, wet, and dry sand. Nothing in the surf. Dry I found 2 pieces of small junk, 2 zincolns, 1 quarter for a total of $27 cents in clad. Then I hit the towel line and BANG, Nox shows a steady 6. It was a 24 karot gold chain, 15" to 17" long, intack, like new. Nothing broke on it. Says 24 karot on thr clasp. What would a chain like that be worth. Onlin they show between $300 to over $ 1.000. I don't know. Nox was great.

    Also if they spelled karat/ karot like it says in your post I would say fake unless it is a foreign made chain maybe that is how it is spelled in their language.

    No back thats my spelling. I looked again , the clasp says 24KGL. I don.t know what that means, could only be worth $20 bucks. Who knows, I'm not into Jewlery that much. hope this helps.

    You sure it doesn't say 24KGF?

    Hit it with a magnet before anything else... if that passes then get some gold testing acid and place a few drops of 14K test acid on it after scratching it a little and see if it bubbles up green. If not you are "golden"!

    Ok, I'm getting great advise. Wife has a gold testing kit. The chain it felt to me stuck to a magnet a little, it seemed like it glided on the magnet. I tested a known cheap chain and it stuck like glue to the maganet. Now for the test. I rubbed the clasp on the surface block and hit it with 22 k acid. Nothing happened, gold rub marks were still there under the acid. Whats that all mean. You guys are teaching me alot. OH, it says 24 KGL not GF.

    Just a new term - they put micro thin layers of gold on top of junk metal - possibly steel
    used to be that gold filled was just that - a gold shell and was filled with silver or a "junk" metal
    white metal copper brass etc
    i found 100+ yr old gold filled items that gold shell was thick enough to peel off and still have weight to it
    then they plated them and still used GF = gold filled
    or GP = gold plate ...then EGP = electro gold plate
    there are bunch of others now

    Get a knife and cut a slit into it thru the gold plating and hit it again.
