925 Silver Jerusalem Crusaders Cross Pendant
This amulet is made from Sterling Silver and measures approx. 7/8" (23mm) long not including bail by 7/8" (23mm) at widest point.
The Jerusalem cross was the emblem of Templar Crusaders, and may have been the personal arms of Templar Godfrey de Bouillon.
The Jerusalem cross has four arms at equal distances, symbolizing the four directions, and the belief that Jerusalem was the spiritual center of the earth. The more complex version of the symbol represents the spread of Christ’s message through the four evangelists (Mathew, mark, Luke, and John), who are represented by the four additional crosslets.
