This sterling silver cross is a replica of a genuine Camargue Cross. It is in the area of the Camague in the South of France that Saint Mary Magdalene and her companions landed in 47AD after being cast out of Palestine. They later converted all of Provence. The Camargue Cross hangs from an 18 inch Italian Sterling Silver chain.

CAMARGUE CROSS is an emblem formed with a Latin cross whose upper ends represent a three-pronged fork ( a working tool used by "gardians" (cowboys) ) and whose lower end is a sea anchor topped by a heart. It stands for the three cardinal virtues:

The cross for faith,
The anchor for hope,
The heart for love.

The Camargue cross was created by the painter and sculptor Hermann Paul in 1924 at Marquis of Baroncelli's request. The first one, forged in 1930 and was put in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, near the Maure bridge not far from the Simbeu farmhouse where the Marquis of Baroncelli used to live. Today, it is still there.

Every May 25th, the Feast of the Three Marys, Les Gardians carry the relics of Saint Mary Jacobe and Saint Mary Salome on horseback to the sea along with their Camargue Cross.
