Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
The cross bears Egyptian mark (Cairo) fineness .800.
There is no date letter, so precise age cannot be determined. The mark has been used for hundred years.
Regards

By the way, forgot to mention, it`s not the Christian cross but the ankh, the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that reads "life".
