Default Help Identifying this item.. 9"ct"?

I just got back from a quick hunt and found this charm or something on the beach. I would guess stainless steel, but it says 9ct as well as a "B.R.G" stamp. It seems more yellow in the pictures than it is in real life.. it's actually pretty close to steel.

Isn't it usually kt?

No clue what it is, and any help is appreciated. Thanks

Itís either the bottom hull of an alien spacecraft or an dangle earring piece. Thatís my guess anyway. I hope itís 36Ē in diameter!

So would you suspect this to be gold because of the 9ct (thought it needed to be 9kt)? Maybe other countries do it this way, but it looks like steel. I know I need to order an acid test kit to know for sure.

Magnet test? Stainless won't be as magnetic but its a decent first test. Looks like combination between a Ying Yang logo and a Pepsi Soda Logo Maybe its just a tag from luggage or something?

It passed the magnets test using a strong magnet, but so did a key. A heavy steel fork however, did not.

Take it to a pawn shop, they will test it and make you a lowball offer.

Other countries make a lot of 9 carat jewelry. It very well could be a piece that was manufactured in Europe.

Since it's gold, you now have to post the weight too (Pirate rule number 5)

I was hoping it was the size of a silver dollar!

More like a dime...

Either way, gold is gold, and that is more gold than I've found this year..

Congrats again!!
