    Sears & Roebuck 14K Gold Ring

    I got out for a few hours today with my digging buddy, Repo Archeologist. One of my first finds was a corroded ring. I cleaned it at home and looked at the Hallmark. It says "S. R. & CO 14K. Researched it on line and came up with Sears Roebuck and Company. I did not know that they had Gold Plated Jewelry made and engraved with their company name. Somebody forgot the G.P. for Gold Plating.

    Good finds. You might try scraping off the crud on that ring. It may be 14K, the inside looks pretty good. 14 parts gold out of 24. The other 10 parts may be causing the corrosion.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    I'll give that a try but I'm pretty sure it is costume jewelry.

    You sure that is gold plated? Looks like a early 20's hallmark..Very cool find..I'm betting its gold and not plated by the hall mark. I dig alot of gold rings, not uncommon for one to be in ruff shape..

    Ok, a closer look and I think your correct..strange hallmark for I would have sworn it was gold, maybe a rolled gold, or hand laid.

    I dug one last week that was rusty, I put it in the pouch and went on hunting thinking it was a junk ring. Got home and seen the hallmark and started cleaning it, had to be one of the hardest rings Ive every found to clean, rusted bad..but she cleaned up nice..Click image for larger version.

    You guys got me giving it 2 or 3 looks.
    I'm going to let it soak in lemon juice over night and see what happens.

    I've never seen a corroded gold ring before, I may have just learned something.
