Physical description

Gold crucifix, enamelled in black, with a white enamel titulus and set with four rubies in high closed mounts, one at the end of each arm. The crucifix is hanging from a quatrefoil, decorated in black and white enamel on each lobe, with a central ruby in a closed mount, which was probably originally a link in a chain. The suspension ring at the top of the crucifix has been replaced.
