Large silver metal crucifix with durable and beautiful white enamel in the arms. Made in Italy.
This style of cross is commonly known as a "budded" cross, designed along the lines of Byzantine crosses.
Budded crosses can be fashioned with anywhere from a single to five buds per cross end, each arrangement having its own symbolism. The most common is three, which represents the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The three-budded cross is also sometimes called the Apostles Cross, with each bud representing one of the twelve Apostles.
