Amber Bezel Cross
Byzantine Sterling Silver Garnet
Cross on Garnet Strand (Museum Collection)
In the sixth century, the emperor Justinian
built the great domed Church of Holy Wisdom in Constantinople. This
attracted many talented artisans in metalwork, enameling and mosaics.
A period of exuberant productivity of Christian imagery burst forth. This
stunning Cross (1 1/2" L) is based on a
6th century Byzantine pectoral Cross reflecting Roman influences. In
sterling silver set with five cabochon garnets and suspended on a 16
1/4" L matching garnet strand.
