Vintage Boho, Tribal, Ethiopian Coptic Cast Cross 2 11/16'" By 1 3/4" Wide With Pierced, Interwoven Knot Work Design Symbolizing Eternity $42.00

This vintage Ethiopian coptic cross has a pattern of interwoven lines, similar to Celtic designs, which symbolize eternity. The finish is silver with a softly aged patina with darkened recesses. In some areas the design is pierced right through, letting light pass through.
It measures just under 2 11/16" long by 1 3/4" wide with a 7/16" outside diameter loop at the top which has an opening of just under 3/8". It is just over 1/16" thick. The total weight is 23 grams.
Christian Ethiopians have worn cross pendants made from coin silver for well over 1600 years. These are made by using the lost wax casting method or they are cut directly from Maria Teresa silver coins. The metal for Coptic crosses ranges from coin silver( 80%) to a variety of mixed metals. This piece is a mixture of white metals with no discernible silver content. As trade increased and the supply of silver became more readily available during the 19th century, designs became more elaborate with symbols and patterns influenced by many other religious groups.
Bohemian and tribal, this piece can be worn alone or mixed with other ethnic elements for a bold statement piece of jewelry. Just want a leather cord to wear it on? Message me, I can offer several custom options.
