Renaissance Cross

This cross is in a pattee shape, where the arms of the cross flare outward slightly. Each arm is decorated with a complementary but different pattern of scrolling leaves and vines typical of the more fluid organic shapes of Renaissance decoration. The original cross, from which this design was derived, dates to the 16th century and is now in the collection of the British Museum. The scale and delicate design captured in this adaptation will make this cross a treasured part of a lucky person's jewelry collection.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.
