Maltese Cross & Fleur-De-Lis Wax Seal Charm Earrings


Handcrafted from a medieval wax seal stamp and a vintage wax seal stamp, this wax seal charm features a medieval Maltese cross with a fleur-de-lis charm hanging below.The fleur-de-lis carries much symbolism including political and religious symbolism, especially in French heraldry.

The symbolism of wisdom, valor, and faith comes from the three petals representing the medieval social classes: those who studied, those who fought, and those who prayed.

The religious symbolism of the fleur-de-lis is that the three petals represent the Holy Trinity – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Maltese cross symbolizes the eight obligations or aspirations of the Knights Hospitaller (the Knights of Malta):
• to live in truth
• to have faith
• to repent one's sins
• to give proof of humility
• to love justice
• to be merciful
• to be sincere and wholehearted
• to endure persecution

These fine silver earrings measure approximately 1 1/2” from the top of the sterling silver French hooks to the bottom of the charms.

Handcrafted in my studio just outside of Houston, Texas, each symbolic wax seal item from The Silver Acorn is hand-stamped in reclaimed fine silver or bronze and will be slightly different and uniquely yours.
