The Cross a Statement Piece of History

The Cross a Statement Piece of History

FEBRUARY 19, 2018

I have always liked crosses whether they are wall crosses, on a necklace, brooches or as pendants. Crosses go way back to the time of Jesus Christ as we all know. Shaped like the letter T surmounted by an oval or circle. Originally the Egyptian symbol for "life," it was adopted by the Egyptian Christians. Also called a crux ansata, meaning "cross with a handle."

Crosses have been used as an emblem such as by the Templar Crusaders, or as a symbol of Christianity, Holiness, or is view as the sacrifice made by Jesus. Crosses are also extremely popular as tattoos because of their deep and personal meanings, historical and cultural significance and because it is an easy design to do. Crosses are a symbolic object making them attractive to give as a gift. 

The crosses shown in this article are amazing in beauty and uniqueness. A collector's piece for sure. Crosses are elegant enough to put it over a nice sweater, set it on a choker or have it as a necklace.  We have necklaces with crosses and or pendants, and all are handcrafted by artisans.  A cross is the piece of Christian history, a symbol of integrity.
