Brilliant faceted rock crystal is set in elaborate silver tracery in this antique cross of traditional French style, and most likely of French origin. The cross has both a bale for wearing it as a pendant, along with a pin back. It is large and dramatic, making it a superb statement piece. The silver acid tests as sterling. Most likely this piece is from the late Georgian/early Victorian period, with some later additions. Stylistically it is from that period, and the black dot hand-cut rock crystal and fine workmanship all point in that direction.

The central stone is a relatively modern replacement and cubic zirconia was used rather than rock crystal. As mentioned above, the bale is a later addition or replacement. And the pin back is also a modern addition or replacement. There is a tiny break in the silver at two points in the filigree; this is not noticeable to the naked eye, only under magnification. Other than that, there are a few small dings on the back side, but nothing major.
