Hey guys, 

My first time posting here, hopefully I'm not breaking any rules! 

My mother recently took some of her old gold jewelry to be melted down into a bracelet. While she was there the jeweler pulled out one of her bracelets saying it was too valuable and shouldn't be melted down. So that's got me trying to find out more about it and what type of chain it is.

So far no luck! I thought you guys might know something and have some suggestions whether she should sell it or not!

Did he offer to buy it?  Are you sure it is 24 k ?

I think she should do what she wants it it...it is only worth what some other will pay...

take it to  some other jeweler and see what they say.

I think Fred’s right, I asked my wife and she didn’t recognize the design she’s  been in the business for this stuff a long time and can usually spot the brands from a distance, she asked if their were any marks? She said 24K gold like that has been popular in China for a long time it not popular now with the younger generation as much.

my only question and it’s not possible to tell from the picture, could it be very old??? That might be important. Taking a second look at the clasp I would not think it to be ancient.

Really only one rule that matters on these forums - be a decent human being! :smile:

Take it to a couple jewelers for opinions. Beware that if they are looking to buy it themselves they might lowball the value. The guy did you right. That is a nice chain. No matter what you should be able to sell it for more than melt value.

There is a mark on the clasp possibly but I can't make it out.

Looks like a 999.9 hallmark which would indicate 24K gold.  If there are any other hallmarks they should indicate maker, date etc.

Does your camera have a macro mode? If so, perhaps post a photo of the hallmarks.  The maker can make all the difference in the world. 

An auction house had a beautiful watch listed as a "14K TWO TONE GOLD AND DIAMOND HAMILTON LADY'S WATCH".  Looked far nicer and different then any Hamilton I've ever seen, and when I looked at the watch, it was not a Hamilton at all, it was a Swiss HEBE INCABLOC watch, basically a $5,000 watch, ended up picking it up for a song 🙂

      I’m interested in finding a used Tejon. The Tesoro’s remind me of the Sovereign GT in some ways.

      I was hunting some pasture a downhill slope where some area has been levelled out looking like a foundation of some kind. For me it looks like there has been some kind of building or similar but nothing left except green grass. I found this item. Cleaning it up I found 6 sun-markings. 3 to the left of the tip and 3 to the right. Could it be a part of a sundial? Any suggestions on the age?

      Hello - I'm looking some help locating an old issue of Lost Treasure Magazine.  For years I held on to the August 2007 issue because of an article in it titled "Train Robbers Loot Found in Denver".  Unfortunately, I can no longer find the issue and am searching for another copy of it or of that article.   Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

      So there was a rattle inside my T2 when swinging it so I popped it open to have a look what the rattle was.  It was a loose black wire,  I can't see anywhere it was meant to be soldered on, the wire is stripped at the end but no visible signs it was ever soldered anywhere.

      This is a photo of a T2 board I found on the web, I've marked the black wire with the Red circle showing the wire in question.
      There is some hot glue on the back of the control box case that looks like it could possibly be the location where the end of the wire is meant to be, maybe it was just hot glued onto the control housing? 
      The T2 is working perfectly with this wire not connected to anything, it's damn lucky it didn't hit something and short it while it was floating loose inside the control box.
      It's not worth sending the T2 overseas for this to be fixed and it's out of warranty now anyway, especially seeing it's working fine so I was hoping someone knew what this wire is for and where it's meant to be connected to.  I think I'm right it was just hot glued to the case but I'd like to know for sure.   I also have no idea why it would be there like that, like an antenna?
      Also, The T2 is a bit of a pain with EMI, has anyone considered or used EMI reducing coatings on housing to calm down emi?  I've always known they existed but never tried one so it would be good to hear from someone who has had experience with them.
      This is the one I think might be the best, but there is also EMI reducing tapes and the more traditional metal with holes in it method.
      Super Shield Conductive Coating - 12 oz. aerosol
      Reduce or eliminate EMI / RFI interference in plastic electronic enclosures. An excellent general purpose EMI / RFI shielding spray. Protects sensitive electronic devices from electromagnetic interference. Ideal for use on plastic electronic enclosures.
      Could also do it the dodgy way and stick tin foil onto the inside of the plastic housing 🙂
      It would work, if you wrap your mobile phone in tin foil and try calling it, the phone won’t have any signal. These radio waves are a form of EMF radiation. The tin foil acts as a barrier and completely blocks those waves.
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Using Wi Stream module is helping me vs Bluetooth wireless headphones.
      Like to hear some other folks reports using Wi Stream with Nox in difficult sites.
