Generously long and retaining its original chain, a vintage Miguel Martinez cross necklace inspired by the ancient yalalag crosses worn in Mexico long before the Spanish conquest. This is a classic rendition of the design featuring a big winged heart at the pendant's center with generously sized dangles and a heavy double loop and sphere chain. Whether you wear it to express your spirituality or as a work of art, it is a stunning piece and exhibits all the qualities Martinez's jewelry is known and collected for. The pendant measures 4" long by 2 1/4" wide and the chain is 26 1/4" long (please note that this is a continuous chain without a clasp). The necklace weighs 83.4 grams and is signed with Miguel's name in capital letters alongside "STERLING 925", "MEXICO" and Eagle 1 assay mark. Dating in the 1950s-70s and in excellent vintage condition.
