Default Tiny bit of gold and some sterling at thrift store

Went to a second hand store and was looking around at different stuff, checked out and realized I did not go in the back room. Went around the corner and spotted this little sand dollar, and for whatever reason I checked it out the best I could without a loop on me and "old" eyes. $1.00 and it is marked 14kt. but soooo light .37 grams. The bracelet was found at another location, it just looked right and when I get home I find the mark, .50 cents, weighs approx. 5.5 grams. Not a lot of weight with this stuff but still fun to find.

You certainly have the eye for the good stuff. I had one of those tiny gold sand dollar pendants years ago. Mine was a thrifty find too. I sold it, but don't recall how much. Nice finds!

Thank you, I really don't know why I even looked at it, other than I somehow noticed the loop was soldered. As far as "seeing" I got lucky, neither time I had glasses on.

Around here, even the worthless bling is marked up 100%.
