    Ok, second try to strike gold

    The other day I found a ring and just knew it was gold. Well I was only half right because it turned out to be gold filed. Today I hit the ground running. Found lots and lots of clad and some obvious fake rings and necklaces. I was pretty tired and set on stopping for the day and then found the silver ring and then the gold necklace. Sure hope this time it's real.

    I also have a ring that looks like white gold with rubys but there are no markings inside other than two dimples so I just don't know. What do you guys think?Click image for larger version.

    14K Italy is pretty much the mark of doom. Those are some nice finds, and if you are digging stuff like that the gold will come.

    Love the jewelry! Hope some of it's actually precious metal too. The one with stones would be more likely to be real if there was a tiny hole behind each stone, I guess that gives genuine stones extra brilliance when wearing or something like that. But you can have some friendly jeweler check out all your finds! To me, your discovering so much jewelry of any kind so quickly means that the place you're hunting either hasn't ever been detected or it was detected by sloppy guys! Keep detecting that place! Even go over again the parts of it you've already detected. Your gonna find good gold & silver! Maybe an old silver dollar too, like I found in an ugly old field! Happy New Year ahead! Andi

    Received acid test kit today and found that necklace and ruby ring are plated. Silver ring tested ok and is silver. Stones are dark so I could not tell if .925 or .800. Reacted very close to same as what I know to be .925 but not positive. At least it is real.

    Congrats on the finds if your chain doesn't register with the 14k try the 10k I found a bracelet that was marked 14k and was 10k. And I also found a bracelet and ring marked 14k italy and that is what they were. If you want the gold dig everything. Good luck.
