“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13b-14)
Combining graceful details and a time-honored look, this Stylized and Antiqued Budded Scroll Cross in Sterling Silver is a joyful and fashionable statement of faith. Carved into this pedant with elegant scrollwork is a cross within a cross, an emblem that’s been given a crosshatched texture that, at a glance, simply makes the center of this cross seem darker than the shining edges that frame it.
The eye-catching cross in this pendant is known as the budded cross, thanks to the three “buds” that emerge from each arm this symbol. This emblem has been given several meanings; for example, it’s been said that these trios of buds represent the three persons of the Trinity or that they symbolize a faith that’s always growing. Another common interpretation is that the 12 buds in all that accent this cross are representative of the 12 apostles. No matter which of these meanings resonates most with you, this is a stylish way to declare your faith.
Cross measures 36mm (1 7/16”) x 22mm (7/8”) not including bail.
