    just figured out what the chain and end bits for to secure it to your button i guess

    Chapado appears to mean 'plate' as in metal and Oro is Gold.
    So Gold Plated.?




    The hallmarks should tell you what its made of...

    ^ Ah. Not going to be worth much (anything) then if its plate. Very unlikely to be real diamonds too.

    Hi

    Looking at a translation page, Chapado oro, is spanish for gold plate. There is also a website (plataygemas.com) that sells sterlinng ilver coated in gold, in which this name is referred to. Put in on ebay, you may get a few quid.

    Might get a few quid based on Twenga search
