COMMENTS: Circa 1980’s. The anchored cross, or mariner’s cross, is a stylized cross in the shape of an anchor. It is a symbol which is shaped like a plus sign with anchor-like protrusions at the end of each arm, hence the name. The symbol can be used to signify ‘fresh start’ or ‘hope’, as in The Bible, Hebrews 6.19: “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil”. The mariner’s cross is also referred to as St. Clement’s Cross in reference to the way he was martyred. This large anchor pendant has a crucifix with hidden hearts in the arms. Jesus is white gold so he stands out from the anchor and cross detail. Pictured as received from a local estate. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. Items will be cleaned but natural patina will be preserved if applicable. Polishing to near new is always FREE upon request!
