Unfortunately not only do people attempt to “fake them”, the design and shape is very popular and many other people have created similar egg pendants.
    A genuine Fabergé egg charm will be hallmarked on the bale and/or top loop of pendant. The full Russian hallmark won’t appear (not enough space) but there will be the abbreviated version plus “56” for gold content, if gold.
    In the absence of hallmarks that identify the maker unfortunately it’s impossible to say who, when and where it was made.
    Here are Russian Hallmark examples found on genuine Faberge Egg pendant charms.
    A solid gold (not plated or gold fill) and enamel egg pendant is worth up to a few hundred dollars but a genuine antique Fabergé egg pendant would be worth many thousands of dollars.

    It looks like costume jewelry. It is most likely cloisonne enamel on gold plated metal.
    Sometimes gold is not marked, but if it was gold the details would be much better quality.

    I agree, it’s likely costume, but this is our guess.
