How can you test gold at home without a test kit ? using everyday household products?

basically all i am trying to figure out is if it real and worth the time to take it to a jeweler.i dont want to waste my time if its not real or worth anything..

Without a gold test kit you can test for real gold using a bar of magnet. If the gold under test gets fully attracted, then it is not real gold. However, if it gets partially attracted then you can say it might be gold. Another test is scratching the metal and observing its resistance to scratches. Here is a link with more guidelines http://www.ehow.com/how_4469350_test-gold-purity.html.
