Followed by a woman's head facing right and wearing a kokoshnik, which was used between 1898 and 1927. 56 is the Russian mark for 14k gold - the fineness of the item and finally, a Greek letter that indicates the assay office.
The other side of the tongue has a French shell mark, indicating 14k gold.
A marks on the loop of the safety chain include the shell for 14k gold (France) and other tiny symbols.
Side of some links have hallmarks that are worn and barely visible.
