Item# 80-009264 







Description

Our openwork cross pendant is based on a delicate rosary (Spanish, ca. 1600), made of coral and gold beads, in the Newark Museums collection. It terminates in a finely worked gold cross featuring granulation and curvilinear ornament that suggests influence from the Italian Renaissance. As objects of personal devotion dating back to the third century, rosaries were often created as works of art by craftsmen, who fashioned them out of wood or precious materials such as gold and enamel.

Produced in cooperation with the Newark Museum.

14K gold, with 24K gold overlay. Lobster claw closure. Pendant: 1 1/4''L. Chain: 18''L.

Art History

Rosaries, strings of beads or knotted cords on which prayers are counted, are used in many religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Christianity. The term also refers to the prayers themselves. In the Western world, rosaries are associated with Catholics, who traditionally ascribe the origin of the practice to the Spanish theologian Saint Dominic (ca. 11701221).
