As a religious symbol, the cross represents Christianity. To alchemists of old, it represented good health, fertility, life, immortality, and the union of heaven and earth. To pagans, it brought luck and the diversion of evil. But, to whomever wears this bold and enchanting platinum and diamond Latin cross, it's beauty is as self evident as it's individual symbolism. With approximately 2.25 carats of old mine cut diamonds mounted throughout both arms of the handmade Art Deco cross, its classical linear shape is softened with four wonderfully curved and pierced corner supports. Measuring 2 1/2" in length from the top of the diamond bale and 1 1/8" in width, this regal pendant's monumental design pays homage to the universal cross shape which has historically meant so much to so many.
