    I bought this pendant because I liked how hand made it looked and the mod style of the pendant. It's only when I got it home that I saw, with difficulty, the hammer and sickle 875 mark on the back.
    I had no idea the Russians made jewellery like this and exported it. I guess this is from Soviet era but I'm sure some of you can clarify.
    The other mark is in Cyrillic and I had a quick search for the makers name but didn't find it.
    I don't think the stone is glass, maybe quartz?
    Happy to hear from you all any comments on this piece.
    I've happily been wearing it.

      Very cool treasure indeed!
      The central stone doesn’t look like glass, I agree. Semi - precious? Can you date it?
      It looks, IMO, like a very groovy 70’s piece, but Russian jewelry I know not!

      It's very cool and modern, I love the sharp edges on it. It kinda reminds me of a George Jensen piece? Maybe the stone in the middle is crystal quartz alright or some kind of agate?

      Thanks for your comments Eileen, always good to have a jewellery person check things out.
      I'm thinking the stone is crystal quartz, and what I've seen about these Russian pieces they seem to be 60s-70s, so I assume it's from around then.

      It's a nice find Jenni, I'm pretty happy with it for sure and it was only $10 at the op shop so a win all round.
      Thanks mate!

      I can see a bit of Georg Jensen in it Lauren it's not that well made though.
      Thanks for the love and comment and I agree it's pretty sharp and mod :)

      This is a beauty!!! I love the chain and the design of the pendant too. Might be a crystal, you'd be right about that! Miss you!

      Thanks Sue, I am still around, not so much lately. Stuff you know!
    9. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 months ago

      Love it - how did I miss this? Agree looks like crystal. Gorgeous!

      Thanks Mary, it's a cool piece.
      There doesn't seem to be a lot of Russian jewellery like this around so it was a lucky find. Even better, it suits my style!
