Four of the seven abbesse crosses shown above were collected in the Lorraine region.  One observes that the large fixed suspension ring distinguishes them from the crosses with their thin movable rings shown below, two of which were collected in the Champagne region.  I invite readers to contact me with their observations before I separate the two types definitively into their respective regions.

Valloire cross - it's interesting to speculate that the three stars on rods that we see protruding from the large cross in the church of Valloire
(see engraving above) may well be the origin of the three groups of raised spots on the Mary side of the gold Valloire cross shown here.
