Tim Richman Gadoffre is researching into the six pointed star in the work of Russian jeweller Karl Fabergé (1846-1920). Tim sent me this image bearing workmaster's marks for Mikhaïl Perkhin and explains that this frame references Russian Orthodox Christian symbolism, of two interlocking triangles. The triangle itself represents the Holy Trinity: God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
