    trdking Hi thanks again for your time To be truthful I have zero knowledge on gold elements.I had read about using magnets and I tried four different ones where there was no sticking.I now ordered a jewelry scale and called a jewelry shop and they told me to send a picture with the weight..For me I never never would realize that searching for a lost ring that day would take me down this road.On the other hand I see in the news about fires in California I hope you are far away and safe..hoping your next hunt is rewarding.take care...Bill

    AARC Thanks again for asking..So far my wife ordered a jewelry scale for me and hopefully it should arrive shortly..I also called a jewelry store they said to take a picture with the weight and they will give me a ballpark estimate.Its so so amazing for me as I never never thought by searching for a friends lost ring and finding this that I would be here..this is what makes this hobby so exciting..take care and hope your next hunt is rewarding

    It looks like the ring that the chain goes through was soldered on. In the back you can see the solder,
    in the front it looks like it was soldered on then carved to look like the rest of the pendent edge. The star must also be soldered to the back piece.
    To do this it would have to be all gold or silver, plated with gold.
    Seeing this and the stamp I would say its the real deal, I have found 14k in fresh water in much worse condition than yours.

    There's some additional nonsense quoted there too, such as "fake gold will be attracted to a magnet". What rubbish!
    It all depends on the system that one uses to separate the non-ferrous and PMs for the stream.
    Even yrs ago I was amazed at the capabilities of the Eddy Current separators used in the separation process of electronic recycling.

    Never under estimate the power of Neodymium magnets.

    pepperj Hi thanks for your kind words advising me on this piece there is so so many things that I have to learn about the art of gold elements..Good news I called my jeweler today and he said to bring the star over to his store..I opened the car trunk for him he came out and brought it in for testing ..as I stayed sitting in the car..He later came out placed it back in the trunk and said it is 14k and he said if he was selling it that he would let go for $200..Try to get out and I hope your next hunt is also rewarding...
