    Some yellow 18k with silver?

    I bought this for 20 dollars. It is stamped 18k WBE. Tests positive for 18k on the yellow parts but that is the only stamp on it. The band itself is a precious metal but I donít see any silver purity stamps. Wondering if a stamp could be hidden under the gold wire wrapped around it.

    I was hoping it would be white gold but I donít think it is because when I drop the acid on it the scratch marks turn white but they stay in place until it is wiped off with a paper towel. ( sorry if that description was confusing)

    It has amber ends which is why I picked it up to examine in the first place. Was hoping this would be worth something more than melt because I canít find anything similar. Iím going to measure what gauge the 18k wire is and a total length of the wraps to give me a ball park idea of weight to length ratio. I saw a gold wire supplier that offers it in various sizes so that should give me a rough idea.

    Happy hunting

    What JimDon said. Iíd list it at $250 and settle on $190. But that is before finding out who WBE is.

    Thank you both. Havenít been able to find anything. I may post the question over in what is it.

    I think it is time that I make an EBAY account and start selling. Starting to accumulate a lot of stuff.

    After my calculations there should be between 6 to 8 grams of 18k on it.
