Brides Do you need a cross pendant or two for your wedding?
and want it to be something that you finished? and Can you gently push some 5mm cubic zirconia, or lab grown rubies, or lab grown sapphires into pre-notched settings? Can you gently squeeze those settings (two prongs at a time toward the center) with small flat nose craft pliers from Joann Fabrics or Michaels Crafts to be sure the gems will stay in place?
If so, here is the perfect cross pendant for you.
This pendant was designed with gold in mind, and so is an open and just sturdy enough design, not too heavy (square wire is about 0.8 mm thick).
Measurements: each cross pendant is 24.8 mm wide by 40 mm tall (includes a bail) by 5.2 mm deep. Quantity: 1 pendant is cast as one unit, a little more expensive, but much less work,
and you can choose options that involve plating gold onto brass.
Recommended gem size: faceted calibrated 5 mm diameter gems (six per pendant) A medium weight chain is appropriate for these delicate pendants. (Sorry I have no way to get you the gems, but the faceted calibrated 5 mm diameter gems are a very standard size, available in most towns, and online.) Cautionary note about the 'natural silver / rough cast silver' material - it is VERY ROUGH, exactly as it comes from casting. If you are a jeweler with the proper finishing and polishing tools, that is fine, you will be able to do standard polishing. It is labor intensive and a little technical; so I do not recommend this finish for anyone who does not have standard jewelers studio polishing equipment.
