A natural stone earthy palette is blended with filigree metal elements to allow interpretation of this cross as a Southwestern look or a Renaissance look - either would be correct. The cross is magnesite, a mineral that has a turquoise color. Glass goldstone, glass seed pearls and old Czech glass cabs of opal, jade and amethyst colors are great palettes for either expression. Exquisite vintage filigrees, shaped like the architectural details in old cathedrals are distinctly vintage. Worn for fashion or spirituality, the cross is the most enduring of all jewelry themes.
- The necklace has both a beaded and rolo 17" chain. It comes with a 5" extender and a lobster clasp.
- The actual cross measures 2-3/4"L x 2"W.
- Burnished bronze metal finish.

About the Cross: Since prehistoric times the cross has symbolized life, fertility, health and immortality. Like many symbols, the cross represents a broad spectrum of ideas. It is viewed as a coordinate where north, south, east and west come together. It also joins the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water. It was thought to have symbolic meaning prior to acquiring its Christian symbolism. Today the cross is known as a spiritual, protective and ornamental emblem throughout the entire world.
