This beautiful French cross is marked ‘Fix’, a company founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat, thickly gold filled jewellery.
The French are very familiar with the concept of elegant gold filled jewellery so thick that there are hardly ever signs of wear. The designs and quality are generally so good that they are hard to tell from their solid gold counterparts.
The cross measures 1 and 3/8” (3.4cms) by ¾” (1.9cms).
It is in the modernist style – with lovely raised faceting. The sides are gently tapered. The back is flat but finely engraved.
There is a squared off ring at the top and a bail for chain marked ‘FIX’ with a maker’s mark ‘Savard’ – the prestigious Parisian jeweller who invented FIX.
In excellent vintage condition , this lovely cross will arrive in a gift box
