Default 925 bracelet

Dang of it has been some tough hunting. Location location location and I have none of those three

I enjoy hunting grassy playing fields mostly soccer fields. Like the vast open grassy sea. They just haven't been producing much and I'm a sweaty mess with little to show after!

Anyway, was at a park, saw the basketball court and it has 2 sides with grass so I hit those sides and found this 925 bracelet. It's got some kind of coating that made me question the 925 stamp but I carved a piece out of it and it's silver.

It came out in a few pieces, has little crystals or glass pieces in each cube.

I'd not normally post a beat up, broken silver bracelet but haven't found anything good at all so heck

Happy hunting!

Rhodium that's what it was, thanks Ice. I was too tired to look it up I know you have a thread or post talking about it somewhere.

That's a pretty cool bracelet. I'd have posted it, too.

Been a bit dry lately... Went out tonight and pulled $5.97 in clad, but not a single bit of jewelry. Blah!@

You might want to test that to see if it's really sterling. There's a lot of fake sterling out there nowadays with stamped 925 tags like that on them.

I have an acid test kit but also know silver by sight (not trying to be big headed or anything but I carved a chunk out and just know the difference after a few years of detecting) and this is the real deal (albeit worth maybe $2 ) so that's where it's at! Yes fake silver is out there for sure. Thx.

I'm with ya on the bb courts, but I have to disagree on the tennis courts...every stinkin tennis ball can lid sounds like a quarter! I always find a ton of those, but never found any jewelry. Anybody else?
