This Genuine Ancient Bronze Cross
Has Been Set in a Modern 18 Karat
Gold Pendant with Four Garnets.
Though the cross is one of the
simplest of forms, it is probably the
most poignant. For Christians and
non-Christians alike, the cross is
synonymous with Jesus Christ.
The fact that an instrument of
death was turned into a symbol of
spiritual rebirth is amazing in itself.
This is especially true for the
faithful, and the Byzantine age
was certainly one of fervent piety
and extreme fanaticism. In terms
of religious expression, this lovely
cross falls into the category of
gentle piousness and deep
devotion. This cross is very
personal and intimate. Though
worn publicly it does not shout its
creed, but proclaims the wearer is
sharing the quiet joys of faith
while basking in the fine luxury of
the spectacular setting.
