The Chakana cross is a thousand-year-old symbol of the pre-Hispanic cultures of the Andes and especially the Incas. This symbol is found on many artifacts and monuments of this culture.
This jewel is made of silver 950/1000, a silver title traditionally used for making jewels in Peru, it is entirely inlaid with natural stones of color taking in the center of the cross a pattern of concentric circles also encrusted with fine stones .
The cross itself is 35 millimeters by side for a height of 50 millimeters, so it is a relatively large pendant and very visible by the multitude of colors composing it.
The stone incrustations consist of turquoise, mother-of-pearl, spondylus, stones frequently used in craft creations of the Cuzco region. These stones are set up by the cloisonné technique of sticking the gemstones in their metal housing, the latter being separated from the other stones by a thin layer of silver metal.
