maltese cross

This Filigree pendant for ornamental use is inspired by the Maltese Cross, which gives it its name. It owes its origin to the Crusades, as it is identified as a symbol of Christian knights in their decorations, despite not having any religious connotation today.

It is normally a piece that imposes itself, ostensibly, with its four arms in the form of a dovetail, traditionally used by butlers in the northern region of the country, and which occupies a prominent place in the History of Filigree in Portugal.
