Default Neat piece of jewelry

Haven't posted in awhile but found this neat cross a few days ago. I believe it's silver and shows 1/10 10k on the back. Not the kind of gold you want but I like this find.

Does it appear to be a sapphire?

I love crosses! Very unique style too!

No matter the metal, I save all of them and religious medals.. then retire them to my dads grave site.

If it is, it's too small to worry about.

Since it's not solid gold I don't think it would be.

I also do that where my parents ashes are spread. Got a spot in the jetty rocks where they likely will remain instead of washed out and found again.

Nice oldie. Almost looks silver brushed with a bit of gold. Have found countless religious items , but never a unique piece like that. Beautiful !

Cool cross. I think 1/10th means Gold Filled. A little better than gold plated but not as good as solid gold of course.
