"Found this thing"

Usually doesn't mean much unless the OP is a:
*Habitual liar
*Drug addict
*Jail bird

Good luck selling this OP, hopefully you will use it for your daughter instead of your drug habit.

It's worth about 1 kilo of coke or 50 oxycontin bottles

i found a ring, saw it was black hills gold, realized black hills gold is worth something, im interested on how much it might be worth...

no im not, nor have i ever sold anything to get drugs... jesus grow up...
you"found" it? my first thought was selling for blow/gambling debt/child support, etc...

You have to be retarded. One karat <> carat like diamonds which is a weight measurement.

Karat is a percentage of gold vs other alloys. So you can say it's based on purity, but you cannot say it's not percentage based.

The way karats work is 24k is considered pure (but the last thing you'd want a ring made out of, 10K is a good choice for a ring btw). Then the other karat values are based off that. 18K gold is 18/24 or 75% gold and 25% other alloys. 10K gold is 10/24 or 42% gold and 58% other alloys. To get the true value of the gold one would have to know more information on what was it alloyed with and if the jeweler is interested in dealing with it.

Gold is around $30 gram so 9g*30*.42=$113. Now those gram values are for pure gold...alloyed gold doesn't yield as high a price. I am willing to be when all was said and done you could be looking at $45-50 for it worst case.

Black Hills gold isn't special, it just describes the style of the decorations on the ring. It's isn't worth any more or less than a regular gold ring. What makes it "Black Hills gold" is that it's decorated with two styles of leaves, a pink one alloyed with copper and a green one alloyed with silver.

They probably still sell the exact ring you found, so you could look up the price for if it was new. They don't change the styles much. It's probably Landstroms or Thorpe.

So how many grams of tar did you get for that ring?

Just messing with you. Stay clean.

finished jewlery has no bearing on the price you can get for it used.

Most pieces become only worth the value of the raw materials except for special pieces and even then you have to find the right buyer.
