    Thanks Mark, I took it to a gold/silver shop and they said it was a period piece from the crusades era.

    Hello Dean, These crosses are referred to as "Crusader Crosses" but are relatively modern pieces of jewelry. The Crusader Cross featured a single large central cross with 4 small crosses between the arms. One quite similar to yours sold recently on Trocadero -it was from the 40's. The marks on the reverse are for silver content(S92-Silver 92% pure or Sterling and made in Jerusalem) I would consider having your suspension loop restored on yours, but have it done by an expert silversmith,of course. They are highly collectable pendants! You can find them usually on eBay-just type in "Crusader Cross" and perhaps "Jerusalem" and you'll see. Here is a link for the one I mentioned. Good luck!

    My cross, however similar to the one on the link, is of much older construction and looks to be at least from the 19th century and not from the 40's like the one in the link posted.Thanks.
