Renaissance silver crucifix pendant

This is a nice Renaissance silver crucifix pendant, dating from the mid 16th to early 17th century. It has plenty of wear from a lifetime of devotional wear, sadly missing the top of the suspension ring. this can easily be repaired by a competent jeweller if you wish to reappropriate for contemporary wear, but I left this cross untouched and as excavated.
