Many of this stunning reliquary cross pendants survived in museums and private collections. They are called "Enkolpion", and the depictions are mostly engraved or three-dimensional. The pendants were produced in the region of Byzantium, later known as Constantinople. They are probably souvenirs of pilgrims, containing some holy relics. 

After the conversion to christanity, even the vikings imported many of the reliquary crosses to scandinavia. Many finds in Sweden proof the cultural and economic connections to the mediterranian region near Constantinople. 

The original of this stunning high quality reliquary cross pendant of the 11th century AD was placed to our disposal by a private collector.
Our awesome reconstruction corresponds to the original in every detail. It is very large  and heavy with a size of 90 x 50 x 10 mm. Even a light patina was applicated for an authentic look. It is produced only in a limited number of  only 100 pieces and handcrafted  from massive 925 silver. Delivered with leather thong and numbered certificate.
