Golden Symbolism: An Antique Cross Pendant from 1840 Belgium

Crafted in 1840, this Victorian cross pendant is a testament to divine artistry, featuring 18K red gold arms styled as stylized diamonds pointing towards the centre. Baroque-inspired shells radiate from the crown, merging into elaborate curls, creating a design of exquisite symmetry. Suspended from an 18K yellow gold chain, adorned with a strass stone closure, this Belgian piece embodies the era's penchant for ornamental richness. Echoing Christian symbolism, it reflects the Victorian era's fusion of historical and cross-cultural influences in its intricate details and luxurious materials.
