Byzantine Cross Pendant
A lovely antiqued-silver pewter Byzantine style budded cross for use as a pendant on a cord or chain (not included) or in jewellery or rosary designs.
Budded cross have circles or discs at the ends of the arms. The most common is 3 "buds" like this cross, which represents the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Another interpretation of the three buds is that each stands for one of the 12 Apostles, so this cross is also known as the Apostle's Cross.
Made from culinary grade pewter so it is entirely safe to wear, and then silver-plated and oxidised to give an antiqued look.
Size: 2.75cm tall including top loop, 2cm wide.
The back is plain.
I will put a silver steel split ring through the top loop so it is ready to use. If you are interested in a neck chain to wear this cross as a pendant, I have some good quality stainless steel chains here.
