Default 2 weeks and 2 more gold and some silver to boot

Been picking up some silver here and there. The cross is to die for, I think that was maybe $2.00. The bracelet with turquoise was .75 !! 925 True love waits, Casper and 925 earrings and little 10kt. gold pink hearts picked up on one of my trips.Okay the pearl earrings are 18 kt. and I think I paid .75 and white gold earrings are 14kt. and they were $4.00. The ring is marked 417m which equals 10kt. and tested as such. That was $4.00. The pin/brooch I paid $1.00 and is marked 14kt. Now a little story...the white gold earrings felt extremely light so I figured they were gold, also if you run your nail across the post it should feel rough. The pearl earrings just had that "glow" that only 18 kt. can have. The ring had me and I almost didn't buy it until the guy behind the counter said "I think it says 417m" ding ding ding bell went off, that's gold girl...get it. Now today I landed the pin. Hubs asked if I have ever found anything there and I said...some. So we go and I look at everything and first I spot the silver bracelet. I then carefully look at the pins outside the case...nothing. Then I spot more on the inside. I have no idea how I know what's what but that one just stood out. I look it over don't see a mark, then I notice how the clasp is a bit different. So I look a bit harder and I finally see the mark were it shows in the photo. It was a mere $1.00. Scale photo shows the weight and with approx. stone weight which you would minus. Hopefully I have not shown any of these finds on my other posts. I'm old I get confused lol. Happy hunting people no matter what it is!
