Depending upon your sensibilities, this is either a cross or a sword. But either way, it's fun to wear! Sterling silver with copper wrap around the 'handles.' The length of the sword has been given a hammered texture to mimic the blows of a blacksmith. The top remains smooth and round. The necklace portion is 1.75" tall and about 1" wide. It comes on a 20" long, 2mm leather cord with a handmade clasp.
