The emergence from the Dark Ages is embodied in the rise to power of the Frankish King, Charlemagne in 768 (founder of the Holy Roman Empire after 800) followed by conquering southern Europe from France to Italy and much of Northern Europe. The condition for peace was acceptance of Christianity, under penalty of death. Conversion was effective and Northern Europeans, primarily Saxons, wore small cross to affirm their Christianity. This example is over ¾” height plus the loop with the cross beam slightly above center and a block at the junction with a bordered saltire each side. Professionally refurbished with 24karat gold overlay restored. On a gilt Sterling silver neck chain, gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
