    Found time for a couple trips to Old Faithful 12-25/12-26-14

    Made it back to my Old Faithful beach and was able to find a few more goodies. I hunted both Christmas Day and day after Christmas and took home a few neat goodies.

    Christmas Day








    The Serenity pendant is marked 1/20 12k gf









    The day after Christmas





    This ring is marked 10 k, not sure about the stone. I can tell that it is very old from looking at the mount.








    Thanks for looking

    That's awfully yellow for 10K Dave, did you test it ? It's sweet for sure.

    Thanks fsa46, no It has a 10K stamp on it and it rang up with nickel numbers on the machine I was hunting with.

    You're probably right Dave and it is 10K but I'd still do an acid test on it because it's very yellow for 10K and may be 14K.

    I've had many gold rings that tested different than what was stamped. Unfortunately when they were tested they usually tested a lower K.
