Artisan Crafted Sterling TelkariFiligree and Turquoise Cross Pendant
Superb! Spectacular! Stunning! Splendid! Not to mention, looks striking worn on the filigree, reverse side. Finished nicely.
I'm happy with this cross. The price is unbelievable for a piece like this. Sterling silver jewelry has become a luxury due to the high price of silver. In addition to that, the hand work is beautiful. I was in Turkey about 6 years ago I could not find jewelry like this for the price.
Beautiful cross, nice size, substantial weight but not heavy. I really love it.
This cross is beautiful. The price in unbelievable, especially when you consider what silver is going for these days! The turquoise is a greenish blue without matrix. It is a good sized cross. You cannot beat it for looks and price. I highly recommend it for your personal collection or as a gift.
Lacy and Elegant
I am loving the Telkari Turkish pieces! This cross is a nice weight and thickness without being cumbersome -- and a great, bold size! The swirling filigree work is so intricate -- there is no doubt that it takes a skilled artisan to create this. If you look closely, the arms of the cross are composed of lacy silver hearts. The smooth, greenish turquoise cabochon is the perfect pop of color in the center. This cross also feels wonderful to the touch, and I find myself absentmindedly picking it up and holding it from time to time when I'm wearing it. It looks great on a shorter leather cord, close to the neck, or worn longer on a silver chain. I'll definitely be watching for more Telkari pieces!
This Started A New Collection
I got this cross about a year ago when it was part of the cross TSV artisan crafted auto-delivery plan in the 2nd shipment. I never thought I would be into wearing or collecting crosses before, but this pendant changed my mind. The turquoise in mine is more on the green/blue shade without matrix. I am normally a fan of matrix, but this looks great without matrix in the stone. The lace like silver is so beautiful and the design of the lace is even on the bail! I have worn this on an 18" wheat chain and think it looks great. This pendant is great to wear and its is large but not heavy and turquoise goes with anything you have in your wardrobe. I feel feminine and elegant every time I wear this pendant. I also like that I can express my faith with a cross that is not your typical design and something so beautiful! I am on wait list for J39136 to wear with this.
