Sterling Silver Turquoise Cross Pendant.
The sweet oblong turquoise stones on this tiny cross pendant are hand set with a dogtooth type of bezel setting. Each arm of the cross has a flattened silver bead at the end and two tiny beads are added to either side near the bottom. The turquoise is a bright blue with a slight green tinge and there is a silvery white matrix in one stone. It has a static bail and looks hand crafted. It does not have a chain.
The pendant is unmarked and tests as sterling. It is nearly 1 ¼” tall including the bail and ¾” wide.
Condition: no dents or heavy scratches; nice patina; one small area of the setting on a bottom stone has pulled away. It is difficult to tell in the photos due to shading and angles, but at first glance it seems a stone is missing from the center, but that is not the case and when viewing it in person, it is obvious.
This is such a unique cross! It is small enough to gift to a young woman, yet sophisticated enough for an adult to wear. It can be worn with any outfit, so don’t miss the opportunity to add this lovely piece to your wardrobe.
