Presented is a Master Mason's Knights Templar keystone pendant in 14 karat gold set with diamonds.  The bale of the fob/pendant attaches to a knight's helmet that is on a hinge which swivels forward and back.  A large Maltese cross hangs below it, with downward facing crossed swords between its arms, symbolic of the degree of Knight of St Paul. The Maltese cross is decorated on the front with black enamel and a white enameled center. Centered against the white enamel is a red enamel or glass inlaid cross, positioned behind a royal crown in high relief bearing three round-cut diamonds. Arching around the enamel and red cross in gold, is the Latin phrase "In Hoc Signo Vinces", which translates in English to "in this sign thou shalt conquer".

The back of the pendant shows a white enameled wheel with the following letters in gold: "H.T.W.S.S.T.K.S.", which, according to internet research, comes from the Masonic Volume of Sacred Law and stands for "Hiram Tyrean Widow's Son, Sendeth to King Solomon".

The condition of the fob is good. There is some surface wear , but no enamel losses and no damages.

The  three round-cut diamonds are bezel set, about 5 points in weight, with good color, E-F; and good clarity, VS to SI1.

Dimensions:  The pendant is 1 3/4 inches tall from the top of the bale by 3/4 inches wide at the widest point

Weight: 11.9 grams
