This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
When I downloaded the Version 2 mesh from TSR it was still in the free section and being a subscriber myself was unaware it was now pay, sorry.

Have now uploaded versions of all 7 using Version 1 of the same mesh, hosted here on MTS2. Those files have V1Free at the end of the file name and the V1 mesh can be downloaded inside this package from AtomicSpaceKitty.
I Will be using the V1 mesh from now on, it has better reflections for the pendant itself and I want all my stuff to be free.

Recently was contacted by ivanoe with a request for cross pendants for his male sims.

These are basic crosses for male sims that are young adult, adult and elder.

For those looking for something other then celtic and gothic crosses I hope these fill the gap.

They all use a custom mesh created by Aikea Guinea. (To eliminate confusion I have removed the versions attached to the pay mesh.)

Names as they appear in the CAS screenshot (left to right):
1: Halo/medallion silver cross.
2: Flared silver cross.
3: Bevelled silver cross.
4: Silver cross inlade with graphite.
5: something slightly different, Silver GT cross.
6: White and yellow two tone gold cross.
7: Silver plaque with cross.

I would love to download this, but I as well as most downloaders can't afford to obtain the mesh from a paysite/don't support them. I know I myself can't access paysites, I don't have a credit card for one 3:

Well, that's the good thing about TSR, you don't need to pay to get a subscription, you could just gain yourself 5000 kudos (points) to get a free subscription day. I got it awhile ago there. But to be honest, MOST of the pay stuffs there are just so-so, nothing special about them.

It's "gilysse" with a small "g"..

Sorry but I am no longer open for suggestions.

These are gorgeous, and I am lucky enough to have snagged the mesh before it went pay a few months back, but perhaps next time it would be a better idea to use a free mesh. These are still some really beautiful recolours, though, so thank you! :D

Sorry about that, I also downloaded it back when it was still free and was unaware it was now a pay mesh

I have now remade them using the V1 of the same mesh by Aikea Guinea hosted here on MTS2 as a free mesh.

SpdrLgs2 the game lists them under the "glasses" tab.

There were two version available as I left the pay ones up when I remade them using the free mesh, to eliminate that confusion I have removed those attached to the pay mesh.
