A 14K gold Russian egg charm set with an old diamond, dating to around 1900. This charm came from the estate of a French woman who was born in Russia. Many of the charms from the antique bracelet bore the Russian "56" mark for 14K gold. This one is unmarked but it is most likely that it is of Russian provenance. The egg appears to be a copy of a Faberge egg that has the same hand etched pattern. It is well made and beautifully done with irregular spots with raised zigzag lines between them. The diamond is a good size, measuring almost 2mm and is bezel set. A local experienced antique jeweler thinks it is a rose cut but I did not think so as there appears to be a table on the top. However he felt that it is off center and not a table. Either way, it is certainly an old cut. I have tried to show photos. He also believed it to be Russian from the presentation and quality and he sees many many later copies. The egg is solid not hollow and weighs 2.4 grams. It measure 5/8" by 3/8" not including the bail. It is not marked but tests for 14K gold. The bail may not be original and that may also explain why it is not marked, as the charms that did bear the Russian gold mark were marked on their hanging bail and not on the attached end bail. The raised areas between the recessed spots are all crisp with no wear even if the photos may seem show them to be worn. The charm is in excellent pristine condition.
