This is a beautiful and articulated 18th century gold cross. The cross runs deep in history and is the universal identifier of Christian faith. I hope this cross will find a new home where it will be treasured, honoured and passed down for many more centuries to come.
The condition is good considering its age. The diamonds are in all in place and the construction is sturdy, there are some minor tears in the filigree but still all in place. A dent in the back indicates there could have been an attachment. You can see that this piece has been used but cared for.
There is a loop at the back for a chain or ribbon attachment.
