Good Friday is the day that we remember Christ’s death on our behalf, and it’s a time to reflect on the magnitude of his sacrifice, as well as to thank Him for demonstrating His love for us by giving the greatest gift in history. Crucifix jewelry is a perfect way to pay tribute to Jesus’ ultimate act of love and to remember the lengths to which He went on our behalf. Consider how the Apostle Matthew described just part of Jesus’ suffering:
“Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him …
“When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is Jesus, the king of the Jews.”
Gold crucifixes portray Christ’s ultimate act of love in a gleaming precious metal, serving as symbols that you consider His gift of love to be the most precious treasure in history. The Gold Crucifix Pendant in 14K Gold is a traditionally-styled crucifix with modern sensibility. At 1½-inches high, this is the perfect statement of faith for any day, and especially for Good Friday.
Of course, a crucifix pendant doesn’t have to be traditional to be meaningful, as is demonstrated by the Modern Crucifix Pendant in 14K Two-Tone Gold. This striking contemporary piece is stylized and chic, but that doesn’t subtract from its meaning. The image of Christ is portrayed in gleaming 14K white gold and stands out against the 14K yellow gold cross that holds it.
Two-tone and tri-color crucifix pendants use the contrast between multiple metals to draw attention to the images they hold, and the 14K Gold Tri-Color Crucifix Pendant is an excellent example of the way that a trio of metals can work together to create on meaningful, eye-catching piece. A rose gold figure of Christ hangs on a 14K yellow gold cross and is given white gold accents.
White gold crucifixes provide modern, classy reminders of Christ’s sacrifice, and Apples of Gold carries a variety of styles that allow you to express your gratitude for what He did for you. For instance, the 14K White Gold Crucifixion Pendant depicts Christ’s suffering in timeless yet contemporary fashion. This corpus pendant measures 1 5/8 inches high, making it an excellent choice for any day.
Crucifix pendants provide unmistakable reminders of Christ’s greatest gift of love. They’re the perfect choice to call to mind what happened on the very first Good Friday.
