This gilded hollow pendant in the form of a cross with curved trefoil corners has a central raised rosette boss of enriched copper gilded metal. The bezel of the boss is surrounded by a twisted wire.
An engraved decoration with script initialed monogram ornaments the reverse of the cross. A triangular shaped sheet bail decorated with three very thin twisted wires comes to a point to which is soldered a jump ring faced by a small rosette. This loop goes through the jump ring at the top of the cross.
