    Not sure if this is Sterling or Costume Jewelry until I figure it out in will stay in costume category.
    I believe it is mother of pearl.
    Mark-Star inside a Full Circle
    If anyone knows this mark please let me know.
    This belonged to my mother so I don't have much info on it. But I do wear it all the time. Very beautiful to me.

      I have a pin posted with the same mark. If you enlarge the second photo you will see it.

      I guess this makes two of us in need of more information LOL

      Found This site, but didn't explore thoroughly yet!

      Hope it will help :-)

      I checked this site some time ago. It is a very good site but I couldn't the star in a circle:(

      I guess we have to keep researching.....part of the fun :)
    5. freiheit freiheit, 7 years ago
      Agree!
    6. freiheit freiheit, 7 years ago
      I am inclined to say it is a star in a full circle. The mark happens to be on the edge of the jewelry and therefore might be missing part of circle. But, of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.
    7. melaniej melaniej, 7 years ago
      freiheit you are correct......it's a full circle :)
    8. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      I found a star in a circle there:

      Georg Adam Scheid
      But he worked silver and earlier, I think...
      Anyway, this site is very useful for hallmarks!

      This is definitively not a brooch of Georg Adam Scheid. I own a pendant made by him and published at my CW site. This is a brooch of a later date according to the lock.

      A gram I have no clue but I wear it all the time and love it.
