Item ID:970

Item description:

See scan - almost perfect condition. This is an extremely rare very early days Imperial Royal Russian gold christian orthodox cross with diamonds. A total of 35 diamonds on top. Total weight of diamonds is probably around 5 karats. There are 3 big diamonds - one at the center of the cross and approximately 0.5 karat and two bigger ones at the crown and wreath which are about 1 karat each. Some extremely minor epert restorations have been done to cross and crown. Gold content of the whole piece is 18 karats and the piece weighs about 30 or more grams. No maker hallmark, due to the fact that back during those days most of the goldsmith masters were still not used to put marks. For what I've learned, a limited number of such crosses were presented to bishops and other high ranking church members, as well as to other high class people. Extremely rare and scarce antique gold jewelry and a true collector item.
