Hello Forum, I just purchased this at a garage sale and am wondering what type of cross it is. I can't find any pics of a Jerusalem Crusader cross with this extended bottom arm. Any thoughts? Thanks!

BTW - You’re right that most references show the Jerusalem Cross as having four “arms” of equal length. But - I’ve been to Israel twice. Jerusalem Crosses jewelry sold there uses both the traditional style, and a style that’s more similar to the Latin Cross design with its longer “leg”. I’m guessing that option was added to cater to the preferences of different tourists.

Thanks VRBeauty. Catering to the tourist market makes perfect sense. Excellent thought!
