This vintage signed Florenza gold-plated Maltese cross brooch pin can also be worn as a pendant with the included chain necklace.
The domed cross is 2’ by 2” by about ¾” thick. The antiqued gold finish has raised scrolls and beads on each arm. Between the arms are black glass navette rhinestones. In the center is a large dark citrine or orange topaz faceted glass stone.
The pin stem has a safety clasp. Above is a hook over which you can slip a chain, ribbon, or strand of beads. Cast at the bottom is “FLORENZA” with the copyright symbol.
Included is the 30” long chain that came with it. It is design with no clasp (slips over the head) and is unsigned. The 7/16” wide links have diagonal ribs.
Condition is very fine.
