1096-1291. An actual pendant was worn by a crusader nearly 1000 years ago! Circular, pierced with a cross potent, "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 well detailed with the beam "crutches", formed by smaller elements identical to the main beams. It is just over 1" in diameter (1.03") plus the intact suspension loop. The front is relief modeled and the back flat. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored, on an 18” modern Sterling silver neck chain. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
