Default Price of Gold

I found this laying around today



so I was wondering how much it's worth. It's 750 Gold (18 karat). I just want a rough estimate. With gold prices nowadays...I don't know how much it was paid for, but I'm curios to see if this is like finding $20 on the street lol. It's a bracelet btw.

edit; **************************!!!!!!!!! I just lost the damn thing that closes it. Lame...I won't ever find it on carpet

Ok. So 18 Karat is 75% gold. Therefore I should take 75% of 925 which is 690. Then I measure my gold, see how much it is compared to 1 ounce and do my math. Thanks.

edit: If it weighs around 1-2 grams, which I assume, then I have $25-50. Lol.
edit2: Although I couldn't mass this, I weighted it against an M&M. It was heavier. I've also found that M&M have an average weight of 2grams (The regular ones). Therefore my bracelet is worth at least $50. Lol.

I took my a while to figure out what it was. But give me a weight and I should be able to work the magic I work.

I don't know. Too light to weigh. That's what I used M&Ms and such. lol. I think it's 2-4 grams though.

It would cost you more in petrol to trade it in than what it's worth
