Malta Craft Foundation asked for jewellery which Maltese officials could offer as gifts to visiting foreign dignitaries.
Two designs were selected, this simpler cross and a second contemporary silver & red Maltese Cross with a red bead at the centre, creating the colours of the Maltese flag.
This modern redesign of the traditional Maltese Cross has 4 V-shapes on their sides, and uses Malta’s tradition of filigree jewellery.
These Maltese Crosses are hand-made to order so it is possible to make them in gold, slightly larger, but not any smaller.
Size approx: 2cm in diameter. Created by hand using recycled 925 / sterling silver.
Filigree cleaning advice is given in a Guide which can be requested through a link in the Jewellery Cleaning & Care Guide blog.
