Maltese Cross Pewter Ring

This pewter ring features the Maltese Cross.

The Maltese Cross is a symbol of protection.

The Maltese cross is a symbol associated with the Knights Hospitaller when the Knights were at Malta in the mid 16th century and the now the familiar design is now known as the "Maltese Cross". It is also the modern symbol of Amalfi, a small Italian republic of the 11th century.

The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four "V"-shaped elements, each joining the others at its vertex, leaving the other two tips spread outward symmetrically. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade.

The first evidence for Maltese Cross on Malta appears on the 2 Tari and 4 Tari Copper coins of the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette (Grand Master 1557–1568). These Copper coins are dated 1567 thus providing a date for the introduction of the Maltese Cross.

The Maltese cross was depicted on the two mils coin in the old Maltese currency and is now shown on the back of the one and two Euro coins, introduced in January 2008.

Material
Pewter Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony and other metals. Copper and antimony act as hardeners and depending on the mixture of metals it can be in colors ranging from a grayish/silver to blue and can be colored black or other shades in a semi-dull finish. Pewter is generally hypo-allergenic can resist tarnishing therefore it can retain its color and finish almost indefinitely or plated with gold, brass or silver.
