pendant (neck ornament (personal adornment))

Silver pendant with a large, slightly eliptical loop at the top, with a triangle at the top of it, and one on each side. It has a short horizontal axis across the cross, and a thick vertical axis. There are conical triangles at the end of each cross spoke. The top half of the cross has more embossed line designs on it than the bottom half. The "croix" pendants (except for the croix d'Ingall) are made by the lost wax technique.
