This very lovely natural Baltic amber necklace pendant features a carved surface on the front and is beautifully translucent, revealing natural inclusions. Mid century Russian in origin. Pendant has a rich honey color, a wonderful warm glow, is very smooth to the touch and is somewhat pear shaped. Bail is sterling with a yellow gold plating.
Marks: Reverse of bail is marked SRK (with the R reversed), and a second mark with the letter P, a sickle and hammer star, and 875.
Measures: 2 1/8 inches to top of bail, 1 inch wide and 3/8 inch thick.
Condition: Amber pendant is in excellent condition, with intact gold wash, no scratches and no chips on the outside edges, and has a fabulous shine. The only minor fault is a small ding at the central left mold or carved line. When I first saw it, I thought it was an inclusion in the amber. I do not feel this detracts from the beauty of this natural amber. I have included a couple of images with green arrows showing the area from different angles.
Amber is very desirable and is said to bring special protection and good luck to its wearer.
