This reproduction charm has all of the patina of history and lovely tarnish we all love in old medals. Antiqued Silver-Plated Pewter.

This antique silver fleur de lis cross charm will add an ornate look yet decidedly vintage feel to your jewelry collection. It is modeled after a contemporary heraldic cross edged in the iconic fleur de lis symbol with high relief beaded center decoration. The Fleur de lis is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means flower, and lis means lily) or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol.

While the fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and members of the House of Bourbon. It remains an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics. According to French historian Georges Duby, the three leaves represent the medieval social classes: those who worked, those who fought and those who prayed.

As a religious symbol it may represent the Holy Trinity, or be an iconographic attribute of the archangel Gabriel, notably in representations of the Annunciation. In such contexts, the fleur de lis is associated with the Virgin Mary.
