This exquisite Georgian cross pendant, hailing from circa 1815 and likely of Belgian origin, presents a stunning array of table and rose cut diamonds. Set in 18K yellow gold, the pendant showcases six luminescent diamonds in a classic Roman cross formation, complemented by four diamond-encrusted floral designs at each intersection. This piece, steeped in the rich symbolism of Christianity, is not just a testament to faith but also an embodiment of the fine craftsmanship of the Georgian era, resonating with deep spiritual and aesthetic allure.
