Staffordshire Hoard inspired cross, red crystal

Staffordshire Hoard inspired cross – a bronze cross with embossed design and set with a ruby red crystal on gold-plated trace chain. Design inspired by a large gold and garnet cross found amongst the Staffordshire Hoard.

 

On the 5th July, 2009, whilst metal-detecting on farmland in southern Staffordshire, Terry Herbert began to unearth the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon treasure ever found. Comprising over 1500 items in gold, silver and other alloys and valued at £3.3 million, the collection is thought to date back to the late 7th and early 8th centuries. St Justin has recreated history by producing items inspired by this amazing find.
