    Anyone recognise the mark on the big pendant please? The amber beads were cheap in a charity shop, as I surreptitiously fished out the UV torch....

    Ooh lovely! Great finds. Will the mark clean up at all?

    Nah, it's a badly struck UK hallmark, I think, but it won't go sharper. Beads were three squid.

    Bargain! Is the pendant gold?

    Silver: it's reflecting gold from the amber.

    Might be 1955 London mark if the letter on the right is a simple U.

    But that one wouldn't have the 925. So it's something else. 2019?

    Nice! I'd be busily restringing those oblongs. If they're on the original cotton with a nasty barrel clasp, they need knotting onto a narrow rattail or something. I've been known to throw a copper toggle on them. Maybe sterling if there's one going begging.

    When ever I buy anything in a charity shop nowadays, the manager usually comes out looking worried !!

    There is one charity shop that I rarely go into now as the moment the chap sees me coming he is getting his loupe out of his pocket. Sadly he doesn’t seem to need a lunch break either :rolleyes:.

    The pendant came from the same shop. That, they had fifteen quid on, which is still pretty decent. The beads were just on a rack. Even without the UV, I'd have bought them.
    Bakers, many thanks. 2019 makes most sense, given the 925 and the style. Now you've said that, I can see the mark.

    You're very welcome, OBB. Some days the eyes work and some they don't.
