Nice vintage Mexican turquoise inlay cross pendant. The silversmith has created a small cross using sheet silver cut into a cross design with rounded arms. The artist adds a silver drop in center of each arm and runs silver wire around the outer rims which appears like teardrops for each arm. The artist has oxidized the sheet silver which turns black and the wire outer wraps set high on the sheet silver creating a shadowbox effect. The artist continues by creating a diamond shaped bezel in center of cross and inlaying blue turquoise inside the diamond bezel. They finish by attaching a double soldered ring bale at top.

The cross pendant measures 1 3/8” by 1” across and weighs 3.6 grams. Guaranteed sterling silver. It has a recessed area on the back, not sure if it was a hallmark or just part of holding the cross with grips while creating the piece? Very nice small vintage Mexican turquoise cross pendant! $39.95
