    My First Ring of 2015, In Fact My First Anything for 2015

    I just recently gained permission to hunt an old church property here in town, which had become the local Masonic Lodge Hall after the church closed. The Masonic Lodge has now combined with a lodge from another town due to declining membership and attendance so the building has now been taken over as storage for an appliance and furniture store. This ring rang in at a solid 56 VDI on my V3i, same as a zinc cent, so I was surprised when out popped what I thought was a gold ring (due to the lack of tarnish). However, I was disappointed when I got it home and tested it. It doesn't test out as gold, nor does it have any karat stamp or hallmark at all. These photos were after cleanup of course, but no polishing. Maybe gold plating?

    Gold or not it's still a nice ring. Looks great.

    Nice ring. Get a test kit for cheap online, and then you have it for all your finds. Looks like rose gold to me. Great find either way!

    Even though it's not stamped, it still could be gold. Not sure if you did an acid test but I'm wondering if it's 10K. The Masonic symbol is done in enamel which is typically put in a kiln. I would be surprised if it's not some karat of gold. Fantastic find!
