Some history on natural nugget jewelry :
I'm finding a lot of people don't know what natural nuggets are. When you have natural nuggets, these come in different sizes and shapes right from the earth that is what makes them so unique. I've had this bracelet in my possession for over 40 years and I believe it came from up north of BC or Alaska.
I realize that a goldsmith can make "nuggets" and he has to stamp them with the gold contain, (10, 14, 18kt) but these are know as Manmade, not natural. You can figure that most natural nuggets test around 22kt (24 is pure, but as I said, they can't be 24kt as natural nuggets have some earth impurities.) AND they are never stamped a ct. A natural nugget is worth 10 to 20% above gold value due to there shape and uniqueness and rarity ..................The ring between the gold, they look gold, but I would say there is a good chance they are not. It is often common for a goldsmith to take a nugget and attach it to a base or link that is not kt gold. I do know the safety chain is not gold. I'm no long have a gold testing kit, so I am unable to test the links, other then they are not magnetic (gold is not magnetic)
