This beautiful 3” polished pewter cross is on a 30” rhodium chain and gift boxed, making it perfect to wear yourself or give as a keepsake gift. This cross features a small square in the centre, from which extend four arms, wider on the outside, so that the arms look like triangles, symbolizing the Trinity. The tips of the arms are arcs of a single circle, giving the overall effect of a round wheel which might start turning.
