This is typical Officer Class by the Belgium maker Jules Heremans  - period 1880-1920

If it is in gold it could weight around 21-22 grams without the ribbon  Size will be around 73.5 mm long and 41mm wide They are made from 18 Carat Gold and not always marked, however I have seen crosses made and  marked for 14 Carat gold.

Typically those crosses have "II" on  the middle of the reverse medallions, however it is not a must

If The above is not matched it could be late make and made from gilded silver After 1920 the orders (  Officer Class and higher Classes) were, due to economic considerations, made from  gilded silver not from gold


See pictures provided


I hope this helps
