    Default Third Reich era jeweled swastika pendant

    Hello!
    A friend of mine has this (what I believe) pendant. He now wants to know, what this thing is and if itīs authentic!?
    I believe, itīs not authentic and therefore a junk. But maybe you guys can help us out?
    Has anyone of you ever seen such a thing?
    The thing is stamped with an "800" on the ring!

    Best Regards

    It appears to have Hematite stones, (Blood stone). Could be from any time period.

    Yup i agree with Ralph, before the third reich the swastika was regarded as a good luck symbol by many!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    For me without any doubt a period pendant. I have seen very similar ones and adverts from the 30ies for this items. Pendant, rings, what ever you want - i myself have 2 rings in this style.
    This stones are usual marcasite.
    Nice one for me!

    Here still a period (1937) advert for swastika/marcasite jewelry:

    Do you think, the pendant shown above is a german fabrication? I have never seen something like that and I am not not sure about the way it was made neither....

    Yes, i think so. "800" is a typical period german contentmark for such small silver jewelry.
    And the whole appearance of the item, including using this kind of stones, is also typical.

    I collect usually only rings from this period, sometimes a little other small jewelry from this time,
    and i have seen a lot of this stuff.
    I would bet this pendant was period made (pre 45) in germany.

    And here a link to an other very similar ring in moment for selling - again common german jewelry from this times:

    My 10 pence worth - normally 'lucky charm' swastikas are at a 90 degree angle and 'Nazi' swastikas are at a 45 degree angle (if you understand what I mean!). However, I'm not an expert by any means.
