Sterling Silver Antiqued Budded Cross on Leather Cord - Botonee Cross


An ornate antiqued budded cross pendant on a leather cord with its multiple meanings is the perfect gift of any occasion. It measures a little over 1 1/2" in height including the bail and a 1" in width. Made of sterling silver (see last pic with "925" on back) and hangs on a 16" leather cord with an extender chain. We also have a couple of these crosses without antiquing. Convo us, if you are interested.

BUDDED CROSS (Also called Apostles', or Cathedral Cross, implying a religious theme, and Treflée or Botonée in a heraldic context)
A cross with circles or discs on the end of each arm. Budded crosses can be fashioned with anywhere from a single to five buds per cross end, each arrangement having its own symbolism. The most common is three, which represents the Trinity: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but was probably copied from earlier Celtic Druids, where the circles or rings represent the three dominions of earth, sky and sea. It can also represent the teachings in 1 Cor. 13: "Faith, Hope, Love; The greatest of these is love."

NOTE: These vintage items have never been worn. They have just been in storage or a display box in the shop for many years and it is time for them to go! Many are one of a kind so don't delay in getting the ones you like because they will not last long!
