    Byzantine Silver Ornate Design  Cross Necklace

    Please Note: This is an authentic ancient Byzantine Cross, and you will receive the exact Cross in the photographs and description.

    This Byzantine Crusaders Cross was created by artisans over 70 years ago. Crafted of silver, it is a testament to the faith of a believer... and an entire nation.

    NOTE: We have added the sterling silver loops you see at the top of the Cross so you are able to wear it with chains or leather up to 6mm in width. We are happy to remove the loops if you request. Please see the description below for the size of the original bail hole. This Byzantine Cross comes complete with either a double rope chan or 3mm center-hide leather cord. Please make your choice of chain or leather and length with the drop-down menu.

    The Byzantine Empire was one empire with one religion. Daily life in the Byzantine Empire centered on faith - religious belief and practice had a preeminent place in art, politics, education, currency and the jewelry that was worn by both rich and poor. 

    Images of Christ and Christ’s Cross were revered, and by the time of the Crusades, crosses were worn by Crusaders, pilgrims, civic leaders and humble townsfolk to express their faith in the divinity of Christ.

    The Medieval Byzantine Cross Pendant

    • Empire: Byzantine
    • Date: circa 900-1300 AD
    • Metal: Silver
    • Size: 3/4" Across, 1 1/2" Tall
    • Bail: This Cross has an intact original bail with a 2mm opening. Originally it would have been attached to a loop for wearing. We have added sterling silver loops to the cross very similar to what the original would have been, which accommodate up to a 6mm chain or leather cord. These loops can be removed at your request.

    Roberts Notes: Most Byzantine crosses were bronze. This one is silver, and it's beautiful in hand. It has small cross hatches in the center, and on the arms of the cross. I gently restored it, and when you hold it, you can see it was worn for many years by a faithful believer. Perhaps it was even passed from one family member to another. It is now ready to be worn again, many hundreds of years after it was hand crafted.
