    Heavy 14K Necklace

    Picked up this necklace yesterday for $21.70. I almost didn't ask to see it because the color looked a little off when it was in the display case. Once I got it in hand the color still looked a little off. If it had been marked 14K I probably would have decided it was a fake. Clearly marked 585 in 2 places and has a manufacturers mark I can't make out so I took a chance. Tested as 14K with my electronic tester.

    I have a Tri-Electronics GT-3000 tester. The necklace had an almost "antique brass" finish look. I've run across a few pieces with that look that turned out to be either heavy plate or sterling vermeil. I didn't trust the positive I got from my initial test and ended up filing a fairly deep notch into the side of one of the links to be 100% sure.

    Picked up a greenish 10k marked mens ring once. Lady selling it claimed it was a fake and that her husband never owned anything real. Would have believed her but I could see the resizing weld with 24k in it. $25 purchase, sold for $380 to an army vet with ptsd. He had fixated on that ring and just had to have it. Melt was about $510 at the time.

    Near as I could figure it was poorly ratioed hardening material causing the green tint.
    Sometimes the wise old man shows up. Other times its just the old man.

    Now that is what I call a chunk of gold. Don't go swimming with that on, you will sink like a rock. I dream of a score like that

    It's a thing. Haven't seen it yet myself, but my tester has a button for it.

    Green gold: Unless one is familiar with the appearance of green gold, the term can be quite misleading. The green color, like rose gold, is very subtle. Green gold is best described as yellow gold with a slightly greenish hint (not a definite green like this background). Green gold is most noticeable when it is used in a piece of jewelry next to areas of yellow, white, and pink gold. The classic mixture that produces green gold is an alloy of pure yellow gold and pure silver -- though, for rings, harder metals such as nickel or zinc are sometimes added to make the gold more durable. 14K green gold would contain fourteen parts yellow gold and ten parts silver. 18K green gold would contain eighteen parts yellow gold and six parts silver.
    Greastart and MRBeyer like this.

    Interesting info on the green gold. This piece has a greenish tint. It also has a couple spots that are a darkish tarnish that I associate with gold vermeil over sterling. That makes sense if green gold is alloyed with sterling.

    Could be the camera lighting but the color doesn't look off to me at all. It just looks a bit more rose-goldy. It is absolutely gorgeous!!!
