    Picked this up at Salvation Army this morning. It's an Aztec or Mayan Sun Calendar Pendant more than likely from Mexico. The chain is 20" and the medallion is about an 1 1/4 " in diameter. The marks are extremely small and in varied locations. The ring clasp is marked 12K GF. The bale has 14K stamped on it. The medallion has a mark on the very edge. An oval with a star in the middle. The back has also been tooled with small spiral swirls over it's surface. Not certain but I think it's gold too just not sure what karat. I took the polishing cloth to it and it shines like crazy. I'll have to take it to the jeweler's to be extra sure. -Mike-

    Took this to the jeweler's and while the chain is basically high quality costume gold the pendant itself is solid 14K ! :)

      12K gold filled isn't plated gold. I have 12k gold filled earrings which I bought in the 1970s. The gold is bonded to the metal and doesn't wear off or change color.

      Good job on the pendant!

      I don't even know where I got that from Bonnie I know better..lol. I took a quick look at the original chain it's marked 14K Esemco but it's very fine links. Way to small to support this piece. The one that's on it now is marked 14K GP. So when I posted this it was a third chain I guess I tend to swap things out as I find something better. Not sure what I did with this 12K chain. probably put it on some little pendant that needed it. :)
