This is a wonderful vintage cross pendant, hand-wrought in sterling and embellished with bezel-set genuine amethyst, turquoise, and coral stones . . . a unique and bold statement piece to represent your faith. It hangs from a black leather cord with sterling-wrapped ends clasped by an O-ring and extender chain, likely original to the pendant.
