Egyptian & Russian hallmarks
by: Bronwen

These look like perfectly ordinary Egyptian hallmarks. I have put everything I know about those into a guide:

http://www.ebay.com/gds/Egyptian-Hallmarks-/10000000178591804/g.html

I got interested in Egyptian jewelry more broadly after acquiring a pair of earrings with what turned out to be synthetic color change sapphires (often sold as synthetic alexandrite) & Egyptian hallmarks. The Soviet Union was the producer of these stones & also made jewelry with them, so I have seen many examples of Soviet work while looking for pieces to go with the earrings.

The USSR marked their jewelry profusely & conspicuously, using the European numeric system to indicate gold content, along with an assortment of symbols such as a star & a worker's head.

While I have heard of pieces deliberately being marked as of lesser content than actual, to make it easier to get these items out of the country, I have never heard of their resorting to using Egyptian marks.
