Cross jewelry

Cross jewelry is probably the most popular style of religious accessory.  Many people like to wear them because they are simple, but send a clear message.  Basic designs are casual and subtle and can go appropriate for almost any occasion.  More complex versions are perfect accessories to a formal suit or gown.  Of course, there are many in between that give you all kinds of options for your wardrobe or to go with a specific function you are attending.  Made from a variety of materials, they can really satisfy any personality or preference.

Although they are similar in appearance, and crucifixes are not quite the same things.  The former resembles, as the name implies, the shape of the mechanism that represents the death of Jesus.  A crucifix is a bit more detailed and involves the actual form of Jesus while he was hanging from the cross.  This might entail a hand-carved, three-dimensional figure nailed to a realistic wooden cross or simply an engraving on a thin piece of light metal.  The crucifix also sends a much stronger message regarding your faith.  Those who choose to wear them tend to be very involved with a church.  Either way, it is very easy to distinguish the difference between a crucifix and a cross.

Cross jewelry can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, silver, and gold.  Several woods have been used throughout the history of this item, and can include sandalwood or Hawaiian Koa with perhaps olive wood being the most popular.  Precious metals include both sterling silver and gold, with yellow gold, of course at the top of the list.  However, you can also find some in white or pink gold too, with a few made from a combination of the colors.  Available in 10k, 14k, and 18k weights they may also feature gemstones from birthstones, to cubic zirconium, to diamonds.

Necklace pendants are not the only forms of cross jewelry.  Manufacturers also make items like tie tacks, pins, earrings, and brooches in this classic shape too.  This is another way that you can share your faith in subtle and unique ways with both strangers and friends.  Tie tacks, of course, can be added to your favorite suit which blends in well at the office or a formal dinner.  Pendants and brooches can add a touch of spirituality to an evening gown for a community ball or charity gala.

When it comes to cross jewelry or even crucifixes if your tastes prefer, you will probably have to shop with a specialty retailer to find a decent selection.  Although Christian bookstores can provide a decent enough variety, your best bet is going to be on the internet, where designers and manufacturers can directly market their products to you.  Virtual stores have unlimited space to develop a catalog of merchandise so you’ll have so much more to choose from.  Direct sales also means lower prices for you, and direct shipping means greater convenience too, which overall means a more enjoyable shopping experience.
