The Moorish cross pendant has a Horseshoe'esque design that was influenced by the Moorish Arches of 13th to 16th century Spain, along with the Royal treasures of Kings & Queens from the Medieval period (5th-8th century).
This articulated pendant is made from 8 separate parts! Giving Life & Movement to this very unique necklace!
2 marquise cut purple amethyst stones
Stone color & antiquing will vary. No two are alike!
Complimentary brass chain (may vary)
Dark rustic patina will vary, no two are alike!
3 Rexes box included (may vary)
INFO & CARE: I antiqued the brass using a turn of the century technique called fuming. I'm able to achieve deep rich colors, which can range from dark olive browns to highlights of luscious yellow and reds. There may also be tiny hints of green verdigris, with the raw brass peeking through in some areas! I then buffed the ring with a jewelers grade museum quality wax. This wax will "help" preserve the color and patina. The color may slowly change over time... herein lies the mystical beauty of this natural process called oxidation. PATINA CARE: Please avoid harsh chemicals, soaps, sweating, hot water, etc., as this may remove the wax sealer.
ATTN Please Read Disclosure:
1. Antiquing & stone color will vary
2. The brass patina can change over time
3. Semi precious stones are not hard like diamonds
4. Please make sure you are fine with brass before purchasing. Brass is alloyed with copper so it can cause skin discoloration in a certain percentage of the population. As with any metal (brass, silver & gold), discoloration can be caused by the pH level in your body. There are products that you can purchase to seal the jewelry (similar to clear nail polish). Please contact me for recommendations.
Please ask all questions prior to purchase, thanks!
