Happy Easter! Like no other day, today is a day of joy as we celebrate that Jesus conquered death once and for all so that we can be right with God, both for this life, and for eternity. Gold crosses are lasting ways to celebrate the joy of the resurrection and to remind yourself of the meaning of Easter.
Mary Magdalene was among the first to experience the joy of Easter. Here’s how the apostle John described her experience:
They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?”
“They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus.
He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”
Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.”
Jesus said to her, “Mary.”
Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”
Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!”
Of all Christian jewelry , gleaming cross pendants often portray the joy of the resurrection most clearly. For instance, the Rose of Sharon Cross Pendant in 14K Gold is a beautiful reminder that Jesus is alive and that He gives life to all who trust in Him. A meticulously crafted 14K rose gold rose blossoms from the center of this cross, formed from 14K yellow gold stems and leaves.
Plain cross pendants such as the plain Men’s 14K White Gold Cross Pendant are strong and straightforward symbols of faith that leave no question about what you believe. Apples of Gold carries simple crosses in several metals and styles, allowing you to choose one that you’ll want to wear day after day, long after the Easter season has past.
Diamond cross pendants such as the Diamond Solitaire Cross Pendant in 14K White Gold create a picture of the preciousness of Christ’s gift of life. Though this gift is worth infinitely more than diamonds, these stones serve as pictures of the treasure of the true meaning of Easter. The Diamond Heart Swirl Cross Pendant in 14K White Gold is another striking example as it combines a timeless symbol of love with the cross to create a beautiful emblem of the motivation behind Christ’s death and resurrection.
He is risen! Cross pendants are lovely ways to celebrate the matchless joy of the resurrection.
