Unknown marks on necklace

Postby klingsheim » Thu Aug 30, 2018 2:59 pm

Hi friends,
I picked up a piece of jewelry and cannot figure out the marks whether it just indicates purity or a maker as well.

Any help is appreciated!

"紋銀", read from top to bottom. It means sycee or pure silver. Most oriental countries didn't bother to quantify the fineness in an accurate way, so it's somewhat an ambiguous concept. Should be between 900 to 970 I think.
