This most original and lovely cross is of unknown origin but it does bear a hallmark. It is made of sterling silver (tested) and ornamented with gold.
It measures 1¾” (4.5cms), including the ring, by 1 and 1/8” (2.9cms) across. It weighs 6.7 grams.
The cross has a corded outline within which are delicately engraved drops, each set with a marcasite. In the centre is a flat topped, garnet paste, around which are raised marcasites and then rose gold engraved ‘petals’. These look lovely against the silver.
At the top is a ring which bears the hallmark and there is a decorative bail.
The reverse is finished with a gold knob in the centre.
In fine vintage condition, this beautiful cross will arrive in a gift box.
