Crosses seem to come in all shapes and sizes with a variety of meanings and symbolisms. This one is a hand-crafted cross in a kind of 'solid' shape but made of connected squares and circles that are inlaid with genuine lapis lazuli stones.
The cross has an ethnic look though we can't pinpoint the origin. The lapis is inlaid in a paved, mosaic style in each of the bezels. The back of the cross is gilded metal. You can see the nuanced hand-hammered texture of the metal.
The cross measures 2 1/4 inches across by 3 1/4 inches high. It hangs from a long 30 inch link silver-tone chain. This was the chain that came with the cross but if you prefer a chain that's shorter or gold-tone in color, let us know and we'll change it for you.
The inlay is intact with no chips to the lapis. Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1950s.
