Greetings !  Smiley

In a Public Park on Wed. Oct. 11, using the Teknetics Gamma 6000, I found my first Gold Chain Necklace, shown in the attached picture below.

This necklace was about 5" deep in a grassy area near the edge of a basketball court.

The soil was dark and moist after recent rains so recovery was easy, but I was still careful digging and slowly teasing the necklace out of the ground, so as not to break any links, or ornament that might be attached to the ends.
However, after recovery, there was nothing at the ends except broken clasp sections with no visible stamping.

Using my Garrett AT Pro-pointer, I scanned the hole well, looking for the broken-off clasp ends, but got no signals, so apparently these ends must have flown off somewhere when the chain broke.

This dug necklace is probably 10 karate (41.7%) Gold Shell plating over a base metal, as my wife has a smaller identical-looking chain necklace she inherited from her deceased parents and it is stamped "Made Italy 417 GS".

Specifications :

Necklace stamped "Made Italy 417 GS "
. Weight 0.60 oz, 10.9 dwt (Pennyweight), 17.0 grams
. 10 Karate gold (10k ¸ 24k) = 417 = 41.7% gold

My dug necklace

. Length = 20 inches, Number of chain links = 60
. Weight 0.71 oz, 12.9 dwt, 20.0 grams
. Non-magnetic (Tested with Neodymium magnet)

Nice haul! You got it out in one piece too! Good thing a mower didn't hit it.
