I went out last evening and tried a new location. It turned out great. I got some old large coppers and buttons plus some other stuff. I also got a cool old lead man figure. The highlight of my night was finding a compete unique gold bracelet. It was lost by one of the thin rings broken but even that is still attached. It may not be very old but it sure was plenty deep and basically in the middle of all the old finds. It?s stamped 14k and would be for all the links,pendant and clasp. What makes its special is it has 7 natural pure high karat gold nuggets linked together. It also has a brownish stone thing encased in the pendant part. Maybe someone will recognize the material. It seems very thin and hollow when I tap it. Thanks for looking and I can?t wait to see what else is around there since it got dark on me fast! πŸ˜πŸ‘

That's pretty cool. Are you sure those are natural nuggets and not cast nuggets? How much does the bracelet weigh?

Not really sure. They seem solid and by looking at similar online they all say natural gold nuggets is all I could go by. It weighs around 13 grams or close to half a oz if that helps? They look hammered flat and has indented like rock on on rock.

That was the first thing that entered my mind, but I certainly didn't investigate these type bracelets. I just checked out the link provided by RTR https://www.nuggetsbygrant.com/colle...k-gold-casting, and it seems there is a pretty good chance they are real.

Soon as I seen it come out I knew it was real. Weights wise and look. I know without a actual 100% test anything is possible but I?m confident in this case. Wish you could see it in person because the pics don?t do it justice.
