    I see a couple of similar pendants online, but with some differences -- the pendant is ringed, the Maltese cross is at 0º, and the white part is round and not starred. Neither one offers any explanation though. worthpoint.com/worthopedia/… and ebay.com/itm/123908145086 if you want to compare.

  • The cross of Lorraine? and fleur-de-lys make me think it might be French, but otherwise I have no idea.

    IF the central charge were a sword, I would say it was like Jean of Arc posthumous coat of arms but with Vert and Argent instead of Azure and Gold. saint-joan-of-arc.com/coat-of-arms.htm ancient.eu/image/8662/coat-of-arms-of-joan-of-arc Would it be french? A french herald would see the closeness to Jean's arms.
