Default nothing goes as planned

Been to the beach & mountains about a dozen times, no gold.
A few days ago found two fifties, on Friday morning found this on the street.
14k, pulled most of the stones out and it weighs 8.5 grams.

Very nice bracelet. I would have kept the stones in as well, and sold it or given it to my wife
