“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. (John 10:14-15)
This Apostle's Cross Necklace with Antiqued Interior in Sterling Silver may be petite, but there’s nothing small about its message. In addition to its ability to call to mind Christ’s ultimate demonstration of love—his death on our behalf—this stylish take on the budded cross (also known as the Apostles cross) has a number of other meanings. The three “buds” that emerge from the ends of each arm of this cross are sometimes said to symbolize a constantly growing faith, while others confer that they stand for the three persons of the Trinity. Still others see the total of 12 buds that accent this cross as representations of the 12 apostles.
This .925 sterling silver cross has been given an antiqued finish that provides eye-catching contrast with the polished lines of scrollwork that frame it. These gracefully-curving arcs define this pendant’s elegant shape, while a simple circular bail completes the look.
Cross measures 11mm (7/16”) x 10mm (3/8”) not including bail.
