    This brooch was bought from the same stall holder as the 18K gold Peruvian brooch and beautiful costume jewelry horse. The stamps looked a bit "iffy" to me, but the color told me it was gold. I took it to Geri for testing and she ran 4 tests - all positive for 18K. I also took it to the jeweler and was told that it is absolutely gold and the pin is sterling silver. The reason is because silver is stronger than 18k gold.

    I guess I had a good Sunday. :-))))

      LOL@Gillian! These people have no clue what they are selling, even when there is a double stamp on the piece of jewelry. I will go look at Itchy Santa - haha!
