Antique GREEK CROSS Faux Amethyst Solid Silver (833S) Pendant Necklace
A stunning antique gold-plated silver cross, set with 5 large faux amethysts (these are likely glass). The silver purity mark on the back points to a manufacture date between 1850 and 1900. Comes with a heavy gold double (gold-plated) chain of later manufacture. The pendant has an older danish silver purity mark on the back (13 1/3) that signifies a silver content of 83.3% (833S), as well as a mark I've been unable to decipher.
Condition: The cross is in great condition, with some very slight oxidation on the front. On the back, a previous owner has unfortunately filed on a small area (see pictures). The 5 faux amethysts are in great shape with no visible wear nor damage
Dimensions: The cross has a height of 5.1cm (just over 2 inches) and a width of 4cm (approx. 1 3/5 inches). The chain measures 70cm (approx. 28 inches).
