The most regal of the new Imperial Collection, inspired by pre-1900's military buttons and sovereign regalia.

Hand carved and cast sterling silver, four fleur-de-lis center an amazing faceted bullet of black melanite garnet (also available in blood red rhodalite garnet). The gemstone inspired this piece - Just like the old medieval cathedrals in Italy (where I did my jewelry apprenticeship), the unique rose facets catch the light like a stained glass window. The Maltese Cross, also known as a Crusaders Cross, is a gothic symbol of strength and worldliness, with each equal length point representing the four cardinal elements.

About 1.25 inches in diameter, the Maltese Cross hangs from hand dyed silk ribbon (included free) or for a bit extra, your preferred length of sterling cable chain. The chain is thick enough for men, and if you'd like an even longer version, please contact us for a custom listing.

Arrives in a stylish RockLove giftbox.
