Handmade during the Georgian era by the Hudson Bay Fur Trader Company in Montreal, Canada. The pendant is made out of. 925 sterling silver crafted into the likeness of a cross. Tarnish on the sterling silver gives this piece an antique quality which we believe is quite lovely.
There is wear to the designs on the face of the pendant, which is to be expected with pieces of this age. An additional bale will need to be attached to this piece in order for it to be worn on a necklace and face outward rather than sideways; your local jeweler can easily attach a bale of your preference. The price has been reduced to reflect this. This listing is for the item only.
The Georgian era is known for its hand-crafted designs, which were heavily influenced by world exploration. A few signatures of this era were high karat gold, cameos, chatelaine accessories, foil-backed stones, rivière necklaces, memento mori and mourning jewelry, and rose and mine cut diamonds. While the jewelry from this era began to see designs from all over the world, jewelry from abroad was still very expensive to acquire due to sea travel. Between age and difficulty of acquirement, pieces from the Georgian era are amazing and rare historical finds.
