Crosses have been worn as testaments to ones faith for centuries, and it was popular for Noblewomen to accessorize with jeweled crosses to show how devout they were. The cross pendants could be worn on a chain or pinned to a ribbon at the throat. Sometimes they were attached to a bale at the base of another brooch.
Skillfully carved from a rich, russet piece of carnelian, this cross pendant has a 15 karat yellow gold bale with a little flower motif. The perfect piece to add when wearing a layered 'neck mess', or stunning with a simple black velvet ribbon at your throat. A charming piece that looks great with any ensemble, and you'll love the feel of it against your skin!
