Description

Solid 14kt Gold with Enamel

Dimensions: 3/4″ wide by 1 1/8″ high

This is a late 19th century Russian design that incorporates the St. Andrew Cross and lettering. Slavonic “King of Glory” appears at the top, IC XC for “Jesus Christ” and Slavonic letters for NIKA, “conquers,” at the base. Tradition teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-size three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgment he tilted the foot plate to signify that those on the right side of Christ will go up into heaven and those on the left will go down into hell.
