Home Metal Detecting

Must be beginners luck!

I found this bracelet 3 weeks after I started detecting. It was a dry sand beach find. I think it's silver but I'm not 100% sure.

    Very nice... try taking it to a jeweler and ask there... they can likely tell you quickly, or even put it on their Sigma metal tester. Cheers, RickO

  • Very nice find. Generally, any item that is silver is marked with the numbers .925 or it says sterling somewhere on the piece.

    It is silver, it’s a pandora, they are 60-70$ new.

    I don't like to color in the OP's post, looks strange for silver.

    Perhaps check the piece with acid.

    I have found pieces marked as 925 that were fake.

    The color does look off @Treashunt

    Sun - bleached ..... maybe... ;)
    Air - brushed .... maybe ... ;)

    Tarnish is environmental damage, and with silver, it manifest in different colors....Just depends on what the environment contained. Cheers, RickO
