This Late Georgian Flemish Cross was handcrafted in gold and silver. All of the 29 winking white diamonds are rose cut, and foil backed, a technique used to bring out the true luster of the diamonds. The center rose cut diamond measures 5 mm in diameter. With this cross, sterling silver lies on top and it is backed in 14 karat gold. It has been professionally acid tested. It weighs 11.0 grams and measures 68.5 mm long, 43.6 mm wide and is 6.1 mm thick. This breathtaking piece was most likely made in the areas of Holland, Belgium or Austria.
Known as a Flemish Cross, this cross is not only a symbol of faith, but a sign of fashion. A diamond cross did not simply decorate the necks of the wealthy, during the 18th and 19th centuries, but gave power and style to the devout. This cross, with a rose motif, is symbolic of the Virgin Mary. Traditionally, beautiful woman in the 19th century would receive this expensive gift and wear it with a long silver chain. Today, many of these Flemish crosses are owned by the church or in private collections.
This traditional piece of jewelry boasts a modest elegance. It’s a necessity for every Christian’s jewelry box. Reaching every corner of this cross is a splendor of shiny metallics and careful detail.
