    Sounds like you need to work on using your settings to me.

    A gold "chain" (bracelet, necklace) is a bad type of piece to use. Use a SOLID piece for measuring. Even a small piece is better than a large amount of chain. A good solid nugget is the best to use, even above a ring. TTC

    Terry is right: A gold chain is a difficult target for ANY detector (assuming your talking about a fine/thin gold chain, with teensy links). Sure a bigger "Mr. T" gold chain isn't a problem, but the tinsel thin ones are. The machine tries to see each individual link (since they're not connected as a single piece of gold). The same exact amount of weight of gold in a ring or something, would give a much better response.

    There are some fine chains that are so hard for standard coin/relic machines to hear, that you need a pulse or nugget machine to find them.
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!
