Austro Hungarian Cross Necklace

At the center of this divine Bohemian necklace is an iconic mid 1800's Austro Hungarian Bishops cross measuring 3" ( including bale) . Bejeweled with nineteen turquoise cabochons and twenty three old rose cut Amethyst, there is a seed pearl at center. Each delicate mounting has pinch back detail. Characteristic of fine Austro Hungarian jewelry is the engraved filigree underside on the cross back. Our neck chain design was required to stand alone on beauty to be worthy of this cross, so we crafted elegant Rococo style links with deep purple Amethyst cabochons and natural blue green turquoise. An elegant ribbon frame surrounds each beautiful gemstone. The overall length of this necklace is 19.50 inches, plus the 2.88 inch cross with jeweled bale.
