I've never seen a piece of jewelry like this one. Every single bit of it, aside from the very center, is hinged. The shop staff didn't find the silver marks..... awwwww.... there are two - so figured it was Bijou and put a low price on it. Made in Holland post 1953. Has the sword mark with 925 inside and maker initials "RV". Don't know who that is yet. The gems may be either CZ or Austrian crystals. After a gentle cleaning with dish soap and a soft toothbrush, this pendant will be blinding. :-)))))
Measures 2.5 "x 1.5 ". A keeper, at least for now!
UPDATE 3/9/2017: I showed the cross to my jeweler and was told that the stones are definitely CZs. The cross was made by a defunct Dutch jewelry company known as JPG. He had never seen anything like it.
Thanks for looking.
