  5. Very interesting article about cross jewelry. To me, as an Orthodox Christian, the cross is a symbol of Christ’s crucifixion and protection from unclean forces. I think that this is why the cross should not be worn as a fashion detail, but only as a reminder of Christ. The examples of cross jewelry exhibited here are very beautiful.

    1. Hello Ana, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments.
      Millions of Christians of different denominations do wear a piece of cross jewelry to remind them of their faith.

      Take care..
