Description

Description

A symbol of fidelity and safety from harm. Our handsome reproduction is based on a beautiful 6th-century Byzantine necklace in The Met collection. The original gold necklace has a pendant cross, a delicate chain, and an openwork clasp; it is similar to crosses found in all media throughout the Byzantine world.

Jewelry often advertised one's status and was thought to ward off evil and bring good fortune through the protective properties of some precious stones and Christian imagery. Crosses appeared by the 5th century; the Virgin Mary, saints, angels, and other holy figures became popular in the 6th century.
