With their strong style and their ability to communicate an even stronger message, men crosses are a fitting way to call to mind the one upon whom your faith is built—the cornerstone. The Apostle Peter cited Christ’s role as the cornerstone when he was brought before the religious leaders after healing a lame beggar:
If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Jesus is
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
A cornerstone the first stone that’s laid, and it serves to align an entire building. If it isn’t straight, the entire building will fall. Jesus as the metaphorical cornerstone provides the critical foundation for faith. His ultimate act of love on the cross aligns our faith, and cross pendants for men can provide powerful reminders to build upon Him.
Apples of Gold’s plain Men’s 14K White Gold Cross Pendant isn’t fancy, but its simple, flawless styling allows it to communicate a message of faith with clarity and power. Clean lines and sleek, shining surfaces form this unfussy 1 ¼”-high cross, making it truly timeless and always in good taste. Unlike many similarly-styled pendants, this piece isn’t hollow or gold plated: it’s crafted from solid 14K white gold and suited to pass on to future generations. It’s no surprise that this is Apples of Gold’s bestselling men’s cross pendant. While this white gold version is a winner, you can also purchase the same style in in 14k yellow gold, 18k white gold or platinum.
Titanium crosses communicate the strength of the message of the cross like few other pieces can. They’re crafted from a metal that’s incredibly strong and resistance to tarnish and scratching; their durability makes them fitting symbols of the resilience of your faith. For instance, the Men’s Titanium Cross Pendant crafts a cross from this performance metal with crisp, modern beveled edges and a distinctly masculine look.
If you’re looking for a cross that provides a bold touch of contrast that allows both style and message to stand out, don’t miss the 14K Gold Onyx Cross Pendant. This sleek design accents a cleanly-crafted polished 14K yellow gold cross with four onyx insets, one on each arm. At over an inch high and 2.5mm thick, this is a substantial piece, both in its ability to communicate and in its strong design.
Each of these men’s cross pendants communicates a faith that’s strong and that calls to mind the one on whom it’s built. Try one to remind you of the chief cornerstone.
