  • Buyer Notes: This listing DOES include the chain necklace with the pendant. Commensurate with its age and affectionate use over nearly a century, the cross bears some wear to the bezel settings, and nibbles and tiny chips to the emeralds. These are not at all readily visible to the eye when handled or worn, but are noted and photographed under magnification for transparency. These characteristics do not detract from the necklace’s beauty whatsoever, though should be kept in mind by the future caretaker. This piece is a lovely example of the surge in popularity of emerald crosses during the first half of the 1900s, exhibiting the charm of hand fabricated make in tandem with the richness of striking green emerald gems. It is delicate and powerful at once, a desirable addition to any pendant and necklace collection.

The Story:

An elegant jewel from the 20th century, this pendant and necklace present as a delicate combination, a spiritual adornment that is as handsome as it is symbolic. This piece consists of an 18k cross outfitted with six hand cut emeralds, and a 14k box chain necklace that was subsequently added. 

The cross was hand fabricated, with an intricate stippled pattern that spans the surface of the cross, save for the four trefoiled ends. These ends are decorated with a series of hand-etched rays that radiate from the emeralds that embellish them. Together, the stippling and etching catch the light and dazzle in tandem with the glowing green of the emerald gems. Upon very close inspection, one can perceive its handmade origins, a relic of another era. In perfect complement to the geometricism of the emerald cuts, the chain features slinky box links at a wonderful 18 inches. 

Historically, jewelry bears hidden messages conveyed through the use of particular materials, compositions, imagery and more. Emeralds have long been seen as the gem of royalty, believed to assist in eloquent communication, of clairvoyance and prudence. Across cultures, it has been used as a protective agent, a shield against illness and ill will. The form of the cross symbolizes deep devotion, and tells a story of hope beyond understanding. Outstretching the confines of rigid religion, the cross is a symbol of promise and purpose, a tender reminder of compassion liberated by sacrifice.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer.
