Gracious Rose offers a collection of cross pendant jewelry for deeply religious people seeking beautiful representations of their faith.
Gold Cross Pendantfor Men
Expressing faith in public was not always allowed. Believing that Jesus' teachings inspired rebellion against the Empire, the Roman Army imposed a crackdown on all followers of Jesus, hunting down his disciples and killing them. Early Christians were persecuted, and many were forced into hiding to secretly worship their God.
With many concealing their faith to avoid arrest, Christians had to find a way to express their spirituality and unite with their fellow Christians. Specialized jewelry crafted in the symbols of their faith was one of the solutions, wearing cross pendants to signify allegiance to the Christian faith.
The Roman Catholic Church eventually embraced this practice, and religious jewelry quickly became popular among Catholics. The Church and its doctrines became the inspiration for necklaces, bracelets, rings, and pins.
Today, cross pendants remain in fashion and are worn on various occasions. This kind of religious jewelry is typically chosen as gifts for men. They can be given to fathers, brothers, uncles, or grandfathers deeply connected to the Catholic faith. Men's jewelry accented with cross pendants can be worn with any attire, and lends a spiritual vibe to a person's style.
Solid Gold Cross Pendantfor Everyday Wear
Over time, many cultures have adopted the cross and reinterpreted the symbol to fit their specific needs. As a result, many variations of the cross came to be used:
- Ichthys. Resembling the profile of a fish, the Ichthys Cross is made of two intersecting arcs.
- Anchor. It also called a Mariner's Cross.
- The Crucifixion of Jesus. This features an image of Jesus on the cross.
- Latin Cross. This cross is characterized by having two bars, a shorter, horizontal one crossing over the longer, vertical bar.
- Celtic Cross. This cross has a circle around the crossbar to represent the sun, which the Irish used to worship before Christ.
- Calvary Cross. This symbol has three steps leading to the cross to refer to the calvary.
Whatever the style, the cross pendant reminds the wearer of his or her Christian beliefs:
- God's unconditional love for man
- Jesus' sacrifice on the cross
- God's protection from danger and evil
- The supremacy of sacrificial love above all
