This large, beautiful signed sterling cross can be worn either as a brooch or a pendant with an addition of a silver chain. From a Maine estate, the quality of the silver work is reminiscent of Peruzzi though it is signed sterling only. It is marked sterling on the back on a cartouche and also on the sterling ring that attaches to a chain. The cross measures 3" from the top of the ring to the bottom and 1 and 7/8" in width. It is quite substantial. The onyx measures 9mm and is in excellent condition with no scratches or cracks. Any white spots that appear on it are only from reflection from the camera. Both the clasp on the back and the ring attachment are in excellent working condition. Very versatile because it can be worn as a pendant or a brooch, it will make a lovely addition to your vintage jewelry collection.
