An ephemeral or self-styled group calling itself the Knightly Ecumenical Order of the Crown of Crete based in Italy used similar insignia as late as the early 1980's, and maybe beyond.   This organization split from the 'original' Order of the Crown of Crete [headquarters in Greece] perhaps in the late 1970's.   A late 1970's OMRS Journal piece & Gayre's Knightly Twilight describe the 'original' organization.  This item looks to be of Italian manufacture and of higher quality than Order of the Crown of Crete insignia.   

A Belgian group used comparable style stars at about the same time -- no information on that one to hand.  I'll ask colleagues and post whatever develops.
