I thought it was brass when I first dug it, but I got home and started scratching at the rusted looking areas with my fingernail and it comes off really easily to reveal shiny gold. I held it up to a gold ring I found under 10x zoom and the metal looks exactly the same.
I broke one of the clasps trying to bend it back into shape and it looks like a pewter/silver/lead color on the inside. Would it be possible that the clasps were only gold-plated, while the rest was solid gold? Or, was that something that was even done? I don't want to bend the main part to find out.
Also, I can't really tell what kind of jewelry this is. The clasps don't bring anything to mind for me.
