This delicately beautiful. Victorian cross pendant is Austro-Hungarian. It bears various marks which I am unable to decipher but the gold washed silver tests to at least 800 quality. The turquoise and the seed pearls are natural.
The cross measures 2 and 1/16" (5.2cms) long, including the ring, and 1 3/8" (3.5cms) across. It weighs 4 grams.
The cross has a delightfully open pierced design. It is studded with turquoise cabochons and seed pearls.
At the top is a ring with marks which I have been unable to identify. There is a decoratiive bail to carry a chain.The back is beautifully finished.
I have only given this cross a light polish but it could be further cleaned if required. This cross is in fine antique condition with all the stones intact. It will arrive in a gift box.
