Ich habe mich enteucscht...die pendant nicht mal silver...ode wenig silber China miaw metal ohne deckel ..Die preis is sehr hoch..nicht so viel wert...dankePlease note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Sorry to learn that you are disappointed. First, the estimate of the expert is euro 350-450, so you paid a very good and low price. Second, in the description it was mentioned silvermetal (zilvermetaal) and low silver alloy (zilver legering), but not silver. Third, as you could see on the many photo's this type of Chinese pendant has no back-cover; the back side is always open.
