Jerusalem Cross Crucifix: This simple silver plate crucifix came from Jerusalem and features the traditional Jerusalem Cross along with the symbols for the Alpha and Omega. It is a little over 1 1/2 inches tall (without ring) by 7/8 inch wide. Additional Cost $1.40
 
Artistic Basic Crucifix: This simple Italian silver plate crucifix reminds me of Leonardo Da Vinci's work. Some of my customers use this crucifix instead of the traditional Irish Penal Crucifix for their projects. It is approximately 2 inches tall (including ring) and 11/16 inch wide. No additional cost.
 
Irish Penal Crucifix: This Italian silver plate crucifix is an Irish tradition and contains a lot of symbolism. It is 2 1/8 inches tall (including ring) and 3/4 inch wide. No additional cost. 
Here is the symbolism as I know it:
FRONT:
HAMMER: shown over His hand, used to nail the cross.  CROWN: shown over His head, symbolizing crown of thorns.   CHALICE: shown below His other hand, from the last supper.   CORDS: lines under His hand and to his side, symbols of those used at the Scourging at the Pillar.   SPEAR: representing the one used to pierce his side.   LADDER: some say this is the one used to remove Him from the cross others say it is a ladder to Heaven.   BOWL: some say the bowl at the bottom of the crucifix is the one used for the washing of the feet.

BACK
COCK AND POT: some say symbolizing the early apocryphal legend relating to Judas the betrayer and others say it symbolizes the roasting cock which suddenly came to life and crowed, prophesizing the resurrection.  NAILS: the arrow shape on the back is actually the 3 nails used to attach Christ to the cross.
 
Immaculate Symbols Crucifix: This Italian oxidized silver plate crucifix is decorated with scenes from the Blessed Virgin's life including the Annunciation (on the left), Maternity (center), the Pentecost (on the right), and The Assumption and Coronation (bottom). This is by far one of my most favorite crucifixes! It is slightly over 1 1/4 inches tall (without ring) and just under 1 inch wide. No additional cost.

Renaissance Crucifix:  This ornate Italian silver plate crucifix features the words "Ecce Lignum Crucis, In Quo Salus Mundi" on the front. The translation, "Behold the timber of the cross on which Salvation of the world was suspended". These words come from the Gregorian Chants used during Lent and Easter. It is 1 1/2 inches tall (including ring) and just over 1 1/8 inch wide.   Additional Cost $.65

Thanks for looking!  God bless and have a great day!!
