Spring is in swing and Easter will soon be here, making the present the perfect time for gemstone cross pendants, especially those that display stones in the vibrant shades of the season. The cross is, in many ways, a symbol of new life: it’s a reminder of the ultimate gift of love through which all people are offered renewal and true, lasting life. When this symbol is combined with the vivid sparkle of spring-like gemstones, this meaning is magnified—not to mention stylish.
The Blue Topaz Cross Pendant in 14K White Gold glitters with one of this spring’s “it” colors as it creates a timeless symbol of faith from five oval-shaped blue topaz stones, totaling 1.38 carats of colorful sparkle. These stones are held simply and elegantly in 14K white gold as they celebrate a faith that’s vibrant. At 15/16” high including the polished split bale, this piece is ladylike, but bold enough to catch the eye. If you prefer, this design is also available with garnets or amethysts in place of the blue topaz stones.
The Amethyst Cross Necklace in Sterling Silver and 14K Gold provides a pop of spring-like color that’s ready to wear thanks to the 18-inch sterling silver rope chain from which it hangs. This modern pendant is adorned in its center with a cushion-cut amethyst, a glittering violet gem that’s perfect for spring and that alludes to the royalty of Christ. This gem is hugged by a polished 14K yellow gold bezel setting that pops against the cool, sterling silver cross. The repeating grooved design of this cross has an antiqued finish, giving it a look that’s simultaneously time-honored and contemporary.
The Oval-Shaped Pink Sapphire and Diamond Cross Pendant in 10K White Gold has a daintier look, but the stone it features is far from shy. The focal point of this cross is a 5mm-high oval-shaped pink topaz, a gem with a bold yet feminine sparkle. This center gem is surrounded by four small round diamonds that seem to radiate from it, one on each arm. These gems are set upon a cross that’s formed in simple fashion from two rounded, polished beams of 14K white gold. An 18-inch chain is included.
These gemstone cross pendants are beautiful and meaningful symbols of new life—both the new life of spring and the new life that’s possible thanks to what happened on the cross.
