Filigree Croix de Flandres - à la Jeannette
€925.00

This stunning filigree "Croix de Flandres" also called "à la Jeannette" or the papillon cross is part of regional jewellery made between the 18th and early 19th century. This butterfly cross is crafted in 18k rose gold and set with stunning rose (Antwerp) cut diamonds. Its butterfly name ,papillon, comes from the delicate lightness of the intertwining that make up this jewel, like the wings of butterflies.

The five larger rose cut diamonds provide a sparkling touch to this airy yet dark pendant. Because of their old hand-cut diamond, the diamonds do not sparkle as brightly as today's computer-cut diamonds. To make this miraculous pendant even more sparkling, silver flowers were also provided that hold mini diamonds. We are totally amazed by the many beautiful details in this pendant. The elegant arches, stately engravings and many contrasts really make our hearts beat faster.

A cross is a typical French and Belgian regional jewel, since France and Belgium were and are catholic countries. A cross was worn to reassure and protect the wearer in his religion, just like you can now. This protecting jewel is not only stunning, it also carries magnificent history with it. As you can see this jewel is restored during its lifetime. There is a new circle attached to this lovely cross to attach it to a necklace. Fortunately this does not detract from its appearance, it is made from 18k yellow gold and provides extra security according to us. You will be able to wear this beautiful cross with confidence, you will not lose it due to a break in the pendant.

We love this beautiful pendant since we prefer jewellery which tells a story. Just like this cross that was carried by the richest and most influential Belgians. This pendant is also handmade like all jewellery from the 18th and 19th centuries. That only makes it easier for us to love it. The decorations of the pendant are extremely beautiful and the appearance is very strong and at the same time warm and full of love. In short, the perfect jewel to protect you and to provide you with a statement jewel to deny you.
