This design is also called a staurogram or monogrammatic cross. It dates back to an early manuscript from the second century when the Greek letters T & P were superimposed over each other and used in the early Greek New Testament (175-225 AD) as a symbol of Christ's crucifixion. It was later used on a coin struck in Constantinople between 507-518. The crown is a later addition. A historical religious symbol, it was replicated and placed on the small sterling silver shield pendant with the raised cross and smooth border. Makes a great religious gift for that someone special or as a symbol of faith.
