A faithful rendition of Imperial Russia's most enduring symbol, this version was introduced under Tsar Alexander III (1881-94). Surmounted by the Imperial Crown and clutching an Orb and Sceptre, the double-headed eagle bears on its breast a shield of Saint George slaying the Dragon (the arms of Moscow), surrounded by the Order of St Andrew. On its open wings clockwise from top right are, the arms of Astrakhan, Siberia, Georgia, Finland, the three ancient principalities of Kiev, Vladimir and Lord Novgorod the Great united on one shield, Tauride Chersonesus (Crimea), Poland and Kazan.
2 1/8 in. (5.4 cm.) long, including suspension ring; 1 3/8 in. (3.5 cm) wide.
Designed by Marie E. Betteley, 2006.
An ideal gift, the pendant includes a gift box and pouch decorated with the Russian imperial eagle.
