A classic and etherial cross drawing inspiration from the Byzantine empire, this pendant features a center ruby set in a 22k hand hammered gold cross with detailed granulation work and suspended from a 35 inch 18k gold chain.

Contemporary designs meet ancient inspiration in the rich yellow gold of Lalaounis. Founded by fourth-generation jeweler Ilias Lalaounis in the 1960s, the company revived ancient Greek goldsmithing techniques, creating modern jewelry inspired by the country's rich archeological heritage. Following in the footsteps of their father, today the four Lalaounis sisters – Aikaterini, Demetra, Maria and Ioanna – are transforming five generations of tradition into wearable jewelry for modern women. Worn by style icons from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor yesterday to Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron today, the company’s designs are also exhibited in the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum in Athens.
We love a traditional cross pendant and this Byzantine cross is the perfect classic old world pendant that can be worn as an on-trend statement piece alone or combined with other pendants.
