On reaching the status of a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre and of St. John the Evangelist, a new style is adopted, which predominates over all other regalia thereafter. In the case of a Knight Companion of the Orders, it comprises a breast jewel, worn on the left breast secondary to that of Constantine, which depicts a black Eagle (passant regardent to the sinister); supporting a black lozenge bound by a looped gilt cord, and charged with two gilt Crosses Potent, one within the other suspended from a white ribbon. The sash is of white watered silk with black tassels, and bearing the symbols of an Eagle in black (as on the jewel), the circular Emblem of St. John in silver, and a lozenge in black (as on the jewel).
