ludicrously large cross was the first of my new pieces in 2004. I wanted
to create something a little bit over-the-top. I think I succeeded! It
is made of 14K Gold, and features over 60 ct. of gemstones.
To emulate crosses like the ones seen in museums, two of the stones
feature unique inclusions, further guaranteeing one-of-a-kind markings.
The precious gem, Aquamarine, is partially translucent. The Rutilated or
Tourmelated Quartz is genuine clear rock quartz with bars of black
Tourmaline running through it making both of these stones individual and
unmatched, the way nature created them.
Individual carat weight stone-to-stone may vary, but total gemstone
carat weight per cross will total over 60 carats. Cross measures 4-1/8
inches in length - bale to end, and 2¾ inches side to side. Individual
crosses may vary within ¼ inch, according to actual stone sizes. The
bezel measures ¼ inch in height. (Requested gemstone upgrade costs will
be factored in stone by stone).
