Facts about the cross.
The original Pope Francis Pectoral Cross is made of sterling silver and weights approximately 80gr.
This most important ornamental cross in the world now is not made by a goldsmith from the Vatican, but it is a work of a small artisan master craftsmen, Giuseppe Albrrizzi in Pavia, Italy. However, as Albrizzi explains himself, he just produced the cross but originally the design of the cross was made by his teacher, the Sculptor Antonio Vedele. "The cross was made by me, but it was drawn by my teacher, Antonio Veldele, for whom I worked until 1978. I am grateful for everything he had taught me, the teacher who created the cross of Pope Francis." (Source: UPA Federimpresa). Antonio Vedele died in 1997.
Pope Francis has been wearing this cross since he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires.
Be aware of Pope Francis cross imitations. The copyrighted official version of Pope Francis cross has artist signature (Vedele) engraved on the back as well on the front on most sizes, and the cross comes with a small cart with security seal for authenticity.

- Simple and beautiful
This petite cross is lovely and the red cord is just enough to make the cross stand out. The detail on the cross is nicely done. Love it. (Posted on 3/3/2018)
- Lovely 3/4 inch cross
I purchased 10 of these lovely 3/4 inch Good Shepherd crosses for the chaplets I made for family and friends. The results are beautiful. The next chaplets I make will include a 7/8 inch medal and I will purchase the one inch size of these Good Shepherd crosses since, I can see now, the 3/4 inch size will probably work, but will be a little small with the medal. I appreciate being able to purchase the official copyrighted miniature version of Pope Francis's cross at a reasonable price. It comes with a card with explanation and seal in a small, flat plastic envelope along with the confirmation gift card which I didn't use. I removed the red cord. I agree with the reviewer above that the cord is too heavy for the cross. The cross is exquisite in detail, but too light in weight to hang well. Overall I am pleased with the quality of these Good Shepherd crosses. They arrived promptly. And I will purchase them again. Thank you. (Posted on 4/6/2016)
- Well-made, nicely detailed cross
The 3/4 inch cross is very lightweight but nicely detailed and well made for such a tiny cross. Would recommend a much thinner cord for this size as it's not heavy enough to stretch the cord straight. I bought four to make chaplets for my family, and this is the perfect size and weight. Thank you for offering so many sizes! (Posted on 1/17/2015)
