A statement 14ct yellow gold cross pendant, set with square step cut amethysts (23.60cts) from the 1940s. Twelve rich purple amethyst stones have been expertly cut to sit together, perfectly forming an iconic cross shape. A warm yellow gold mount securely holds these stones in place, with a large bail enabling this piece to be worn with a number of different chain lengths and styles. Cross pendants were particularly popular during the 19th-century, with examples being worn by pious individuals to demonstrate their faith. In more modern times, Jackie Kennedy had a large collection of cross pendants, which she wore frequently throughout her lifetime. Directly associated with Christians, the colour of amethyst is reminiscent of the wounds Christ suffered during crucifixion. Representing allegiance to Christ, it has been adopted by bishops and the clergy in general. Wearable today as a symbol of Christianity, or simply as an iconic form, the purple colour tones will look superb worn against a white silk shirt.
