I come for the antiques

I was just wondering, isn't this site for people who collect antiques and other collectables? I just checked my in box and everything in it pertained ti things that are very important, but nothing to do with way I joined this site. Antiques are my "little get-a-way". You know, to get away from all the crazyniess of the new world. I like to go back in time and appreciate the coolness of the past. I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong, but I take care of my issues with teen pregnancey, globel warming,… Continue

When I said get get some nitric acid I should have said get about 1 tablespoon of nitric acid. I think pharmacies carry it, or chemical supply houses. You might need to have a glass bottle with a glass stopper (no metal or plastic as the acid will eat right through it). Some dentists use it and may tell you how to get some. I got mine from a Geologist friend.

Sorry I missed your post. Jewelers have a way to test for gold. They apply something to it and if it's 10, 12,14,16,18,20,22, or 24 kt it changes colors which then identify the percentage of gold in the metal. They can also assay your gold to determine value.
If it is gold there is a method to clean it. You need to get some nitric acid. Mix it 1 part Nitric acid to 10 parts water. Tablespoon would work. Put it into a frying pan on your stove on low heat. Place your bracelet in the liquid. Turn it over after about 20 minutes and remove it after 40. Wash it off in cold water. To get rid of the solution, dilute it with cold water (fill up your frying pan) and put it down your sink. The gas produced by this is nitrous oxide which is what some dentists use on their patients. Also known as "laughing gas". Even so, I would open a door or window or turn on a fan to vent the gas outside.
To further clean your gold use some dishwashing soap and gently shake it and your bracelet. The soap will remove any traces of Nitric Acid and add sparkle to your bracelet.
I pan gold and have used the above to clean my gold. It works great and is very safe.. Do not drop the nitric acid or consume it.

Victoria, that bracelet appears to be hand-hammered gold. Gold nuggets are every shade of brown-gold-taffy. There are specific gravity tests (I'm not a scientist) where your bracelet is weighed in a solution and a formula will tell you its' weight. Hefting it you should be able to determine if it's heavier than other bangles. I wouldn't clean it; to do so might ruin its intrinsic value.
