French Kiss History: Dating back to the Middle Ages, the custom of placing “X” on envelopes represented sincerity, faith, and honesty. It was then sealed with a kiss by the signer as a display of their sworn oath. 1.5 inches in diameter.
Sword & Crown Pendant History: After losing battles in Italy and Germany and with chaos rattling France, Napoleon read that the leaders of France were claiming that "only an army dictator could save France".
Seizing the opportunity to "save" the government at home, upon his arrival in Paris (as stated by Napoleon himself), he "found the Crown of France just lying in the gutter and picked it up with the tip of his sword" and it was his. 2 5/8 inches length.
