Byzantine Crosses for Sale - Byzantine crosses nouveau 1910-Jewelers Discover the Treasures of Byzantium
Nouveau 1910 creations utilize authentic bronze crosses from the Byzantine Empire (324--640 A.D.) as the centerpiece.

Under the Byzantine Empire's ancient Greek and Roman cultural belief in Christianity, the church of that era flourished, and would eventually form a bridge between ancient and modern European civilizations. Across the centuries the peoples of Byzantium steadfastly held to their deeply religious Christian faith. "New Rome," as Byzantium was officially christened under Constantine the Great in A.D. 330, remained a shining light until the 15th century. Today, unearthed and intact, our collection of Byzantine crosses may once again be worn, as they once were, as testaments to Christian faith and conviction.

The Byzantine Empire began when the fourth century Emperor, Constantine, Christianized the Roman Empire, making Byzantium the center of its domain with Constantinople as its capital. The uniting of Greek, Roman and Christian cultures gave rise to some of the world's greatest achievements in architecture, art and jewelry design. The blending of these cultures inspired the Byzantine Cross, a symbol of faith during the Byzantine Empire (324--640 A.D.). The crosses, as well as numerous other pieces of this magnificent Byzantine jewelry have been found in the ancient holy land on archaeological digs and shipwreck dives.

The Byzantine cross collection is a collaboration of Isaac Abramcik (Nouveau 1910/Rolling Stone Company) and designer Pavlos Angelas. When they got together three years ago to view a collection of authentic ancient Byzantine crosses, they quickly began to envision the transformation of the artifacts into high-fashion jewelry. These pieces of fine jewelry are encrusted in both sterling silver and 18k gold and are accentuated with a diamond or other precious stones.
