Cross Jewelry is a statement piece of jewelry, whether it is for religious or fashion. A cross pendant, in a necklace, bracelet, or brooch will always bring attention to the eye. Crosses are fashionable and never goes out of style. The history of the cross goes way back to the time of Jesus Christ, as we all know. Viewed as the sacrifice made by Jesus on the cross.
Initially, the cross shape was of the letter T surmounted by an oval or circle and sometimes with a simple or filigree design. The Egyptian Christians adopted the cross with a ring or loop as the symbol of “life.” This cross was also called a ‘Crux Ansata,’ meaning “cross with a handle.” The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying the cross by its loop or bearing one in each hand, and arms crossed over their chest.
The cross was a symbol of Christianity and holiness by the Templars and the Crusaders. Also, as an ornament among the Syrians, Greeks, Europeans, and others. It was a symbolic object attractive to anyone! The two most common forms of crosses present in the Christian religion are the Greek cross and the Latin cross.
Crosses are also extremely popular for their deep, personal, historical, and cultural significance. They are elegant to wear as a tattoo, with a sweater, on a chain, as a choker with a rope, as a pin or brooch, key chain or as a bracelet charm.
