This necklace belonged to my grandmother who wore it for years but unsure of actual age. The cross measures 1.25 inches by .75 inches and has lined etchings which are very pretty. It shows some wear on back but seems in good condition. The back reads 14K ITAL or at least that is what I see. The chain measures 22 inches and is rope-like in design. I do not know if it is also 14K gold but I would assume so. The whole necklace weighs .25 ounces and comes in a hard red velvet jewelry case.
