This tiny 18K gold vermeil cross is a replica of a genuine Camargue Cross. It measures 10x20mm. The tiny Camargue Cross hangs from an 18 inch fine Italian 18K gold vermeil chain.

It is in the area of the CAMARGUE in the South of France, where the Rhône River meets the Mediterranean Sea, that Saint Mary Magdalene and her companions landed in 47AD after being cast out of Palestine. They later converted all of Provence to Christianity.

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 charity.

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 (Mothers of the Apostles James & John) on horseback to the Mediterranean Sea along with their CAMARGUE CROSS.

I have written a story of the CAMARGUE CROSS ORIGIN. You can access it here:
