I almost didn't turn around to make the turn into this sale, but I am glad I did. I finally hit some gold. The first picture shows everything I got.

The second picture is the gold including a pair of 14k and tiny diamonds, a single 14k with tiny diamonds, a pearl stud with 14k stud, and 10K Shriners pin. A total of 6.81 grams of 14k and .22 grams of 10K.

The sterling is about 185 grams not including the weighted candlesticks.

The pearl strains have 14K clasps, but I really don't know how to tell if they are real pearls.

The best part is the single 14k earring, the 10k Shriners pin and Pearl stud plus 14 grams of the 925 was in a bag of "junk" broken odds and bits.
The third picture is the "junk" bag sterling.

The fork is a high-quality Gorham fork.
I paid $127.50 for all of it--not exactly a steal, but a good return.

With the silver and turquoise jewelry sometimes it can be worth quite a bit to collectors depending on the maker. My Mom had a ring about the size of yours and it turned out to be worth $125.00 because of the maker it was a collectable piece.

Rub one of the pearls on your front teeth.
If the texture is smooth or glassy then it's probably fake.
If it's rough or sandy or gritty it's probably real.
