1096-1291. An actual pendant is worn by a crusader nearly 1000 years ago! Circular, pierced with a cross potent, with “crutches” at the beam ends. That form is also known as the Crusader's cross, having been an element in the arms of Godfrey of Bouillon which he wore during the First Crusade. Godfrey was a Frankish Knight of the First Crusade, known as Baron of the Holy Sepulcher and the Crusader King, ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem following its victorious siege in the First Crusade. Thus, it is also known as the Jerusalem Cross. This example is profusely detailed with a raised edge diamond at the beam junctions. It is just over 7/8” in diameter (0.88”) plus the intact suspension loop. The front is modeled in relief. Plain back. Some degradation from burial as shown. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored, on an 18” modern Sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
