How can I go about authenticating ancient silver?

It's not a coin but I'm not sure where else to post this and am hoping some ancient coin experts can help me out. I found a silver bracelet that appeared to be very old to me. It also appears to bear a strikingly similar appearance to some ancient Persian silver bracelets I have found on online auctions. My bracelet has a ton of wear consistent with being worn for a very long time and there is dirt caked into the crevasses of it as if it were buried at one point... how can I go about authenticating this? Can anyone help me out? This is my bracelet

Here is an online auction example

    Find yourself a jeweler or precious metals dealer, who has an xrf machine and it shall be revealed. Good luck. Peace Roy
