The Maltese cross was first seen in the early 1500's. Since then it has been a unique example of a cross used sparingly in design and jewelry. Our MALTA cross is a geometric interpretation of classic Italian design. Heavy-weight, with an extra large bail, this piece has major presence that can live on a thick chain. A strong visual is highlighted by 17 machine set diamonds over a painstakingly applied mirror finished surface. This is a very special piece that no one else will have or have seen anything like. Very special.
