A dainty marcasite cross pendant necklace from the mid 20th century, c1950's! The pendant is made of sterling silver and features hand-set marcasite gems. The petite and very sweet cross dazzles with eleven marcasites gems and there is a milgrain border adding a touch of flair. A ring and small jump ring attaches to the top allowing for chain to slide through. The cross comes with an oxidised and more recent sterling silver trace 16" necklace. The two complement each other beautifully in colour, heft and style. A beautiful patina remains on the cross adding further depth of character.

Stamped to the back of the cross is "LEGA" "No213". Lega was a leading manufacturing jeweller in Melbourne, Australia which started trade in 1948. Lega made an extensive range of sterling silver marcasite jewellery in the 1950's and was one of few firms producing marcasite jewellery in Australia for that period.

A sweet vintage cross easily suiting today's fashion. Perhaps one for the chic gothic admirer...
