Vintage Sterling Silver Jerusalem Cross With Wire Florets, Raised Granulation And A Rectangular Faceted Warm Amber Citrine Gem In The Center $68.00

Vintage ornate sterling silver Jerusalem cross measuring 1 1/4" tall(including bail) and 1" across, approximately. The total weight including the citrine gem is 4 grams. The stone in it's setting measures 9mm or 3/8" by 7mm or 5/16".
The cross has four flared arms of equal length with four smaller crosses in each quadrant. The larger cross is embellished with rings of coiled wires, each with a raised, granule of silver in it's center. The front of the closed bail has one as well.
The citrine gem is a warm amber color, is eye clear and without any visible flaws or damage. A round cut hole is behind the gem and allows light to pass thru showing off it's rich color.
The back of the cross is un-decorated except for two stampings, Jerusalem and Sterling. The finish is in good vintage condition with a darkened patina, typical of vintage items. I do have a variety of cords and chains on hand should you need. It would also be lovely strung on a strand of pearls, of which I also have in a great variety of colors, types and sizes. Just let me know what you need. I have more information on the history of the Jerusalem cross at the bottom of the listing.

The Jerusalem cross represents Christ's command to spread the Gospel around the world, a mission that started in Jerusalem. It was part of the coat of arms of the short-lived Jerusalem Kingdom (1099-1203 AD). It is a busy collection of five crosses and the most common interpretations are:
A combination of the Old Testament teachings (the four Tau Crosses) and the New Testament teachings (the four Greek Crosses)
The four evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, with Christ in the center Christianity (central cross) broadcast by missionaries to the four corners of the world
Five crosses representing the five wounds of Jesus on the cross (small crosses for the hands and feet, and the large central cross for the spear wound in His side.
The Crusaders cross is also sometimes referred to as the New Jerusalem Cross, focusing attention on the Divine and heavenly restoration of Jerusalem. New Jerusalem occurs twice in the New Testament.
The Jerusalem Cross is sometimes confused with the Teutonic Cross, assigned by Pope Innocent III to the Teutonic Knights near the end of the 12th century. It can also be confused with St. Julian's Cross.
The Jerusalem Cross is often called the Crusader's Cross because it was on the papal banner given to the crusaders by Pope Urban II in the Middle Ages. Not all these crusading knights were God-fearing Christians - for many it was just a job that would ensure they received rich payment back home. Just as the crusades of today, they were more about economic gains and spreading an empire than spreading Christianity.
The Jerusalem cross (also known as "Crusaders' cross", "Five-fold Cross", or "cross-and-crosslets") is a heraldic cross and Christian cross variant consisting of a large cross potent surrounded by four smaller Greek crosses, one in each quadrant.
