Found what may be my first gold ring yesterday. It’s pretty dirty but with some water and a toothbrush it looks like the Gold is coming through. It’s hard to tell how long its been In The ground. Anyone have ideas for cleaning gold rings at home?
I took a tooth brush to it and it came off pretty easy but you might be right. There’s writing on the inside. I want to see what it says. Maybe even has a name. Looks like a wedding band to me.May be gold plated. I found a few like that.water gets under gold and rust and corrosion sets in metal under.
Got it at the jewelers for cleaning. The markings are 14k gf. So it’s not solid gold but gold filled which is better than gold plating but not solid gold. I’m still gonna call it my first gold find of 2022.doubt if it is gold. gold does not tarnish or rust
