Artisan Crafted Sterling TelkariFiligree and Turquoise Cross Pendant
THIS CROSS IS BETTER THAN I EXPECTED IT TO BE. I HAD BEEN EYEING IT FOR A WHILE AND WHEN IT BECAME A LTS FOR 19 PLUS DOLLARS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, I JUMPED ON IT. I AM SO PLEASED WITH IT I CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR IT.
This cross is very intricate and lovely. What a good value for the money. I bought one extra for gifting.
WHAT A BEAUTY!!!
This filigree is LARGE! It is NOT gaudy or cumbersome. Please know that the sizing they give is ACCURATE, and gauge from there. The sterling silver filigree is sharply cut and designed...not the least bit fuzzy. My turquoise is clear blue/green, and complimentary to the silver. The cross itself is THIN. But, NOT aluminum foil thin. Sturdy, but not bullet proof. It truly is, a beauty.
This pendant was surprisingly large and showy for very little money.
This one will be going into my gift assortment if I don't decide to keep it for myself.
The workmanship, beauty, and value of this cross are extrodinary! I collect crosses, but hesitated because of the size of the cross and me being a small person: I had to try based on video, and reviews. I think it looks great and expresses my faith without being "too much." Thank you to the artisans, and QVC for making it possible for all of us to have such pieces.
This is a lovely piece. The scroll work is perfect. It is large but because of the open work
It doesn't look overpowering. I love it except the turquoise colored stone just doesn't look good, it looks like plastic and, to me just detracts from the look. I tried to wear it with the stone facing me, better but it doesn't look as nice, so I am sending it back.
Even after reading the reviews, I was amazed by the beauty of this cross. Pictures do not do it justice. The size is perfect, large but not overwhelming. The turquoise is a lovely blue-green. And the detail in the silver work is absolutely beautiful. This is a well-made, quality piece of jewelry that I will be very proud to wear.
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!
