The nivernaise cross

The Nivernaise cross is a hollow flat cross set with spheres at the ends. The finial of the cross is in the shape of a smooth and perforated fleur-de-lys to allow the passage of a large suspension ring. The top part of the cross is decorated with horizontal grooves. The rectangular slide is often decorated with a plaque in enamel and bordered with designs in relief.

Ear pendants


Two ear pendants, gold plated and enamel

 

 

These ear pendants are made with the same rectangular plaques that we see used as slides on the crosses. The two illustrated above, which are different from each other and not a pair, might very well be samples used by a jewellery salesman.
