Christmas is a celebration not only of the Savior’s birth, but also of all that His birth made possible. Because Christ came to earth as a man—and first as a baby—he was able to take the suffering we deserved, a fact that’s symbolized in gold crucifix pendants.
The words of the classic Christmas carol “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” written by Charles Wesley, celebrate the reason that Jesus came to earth as a baby. In the third verse, Wesley wrote,
“Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
‘Glory to the newborn King!’”
Crucifix pendants instantly call to mind Christ’s sacrifice in coming to earth as a human being and ultimately in his death on the cross. For example, the Gold Crucifix Pendant in 14K Gold is a classic style that’s equally suited for men and women alike. The figure of the suffering Christ is depicted on a shining, slender cross, creating a symbol of faith that’s always in good taste. This 1 ½ high pendant is crafted from gleaming, solid 14K yellow gold, making it a piece that you’ll wear for decades to come.
Two-tone and tri-color crucifixes are lovely picks not only because their use of multiple colors emphasizes each detail, but also because they can be worn with just about anything. For instance, the 14K Gold Tri-Color Crucifix Pendant uses three tones of 14K white gold to create a look with both contrast and meaning. Three glittering cubic zirconia stones add sparkle to this 1 5/8 inch high crucifix, subtly catching the eye.
The Large Corpus Pendant in 14K Two-Tone Rose Gold is another excellent example. Accents of rose gold highlight this mostly yellow gold piece as it hangs from two gleaming bales, one above each arm.
If you prefer a more stylized approach, don’t miss the 14K Yellow Gold Crucifix Pendant! A starburst-like design radiates from behind the cross in this unique style, setting it apart from most other crucifixes. This 1 ¼ inch high pendant makes a strong statement of both fashion and faith.
Whether for yourself or as a gift, any of these crucifix pendants provides a clear symbol of why Christ came. These pieces are excellent reminders that Jesus was “born that man no more may die.”
