Easter may be over and Passover may soon be coming to a close, but the grace that both holidays commemorate is worth remembering all year long. Just as the blood of a lamb, painted on the doorposts, saved the Jewish people from the plague that took the lives of every firstborn in Egypt, the blood of Christ provides true forgiveness and life for all those who believe. Messianic jewelry is a celebration of these gifts of grace.
The Apostle Paul made the connection between Christ and the Passover lamb when he wrote that “For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. The Apostle Peter also saw this link and elaborated on the saving power of His blood:
“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed … but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.”
The Star of David has been used for centuries as a symbol of Judaism, and pieces of Star of David jewelry that incorporate the symbol of the cross add to the significance of this timeless emblem. The Star of David Cross Pendant in 14K White Gold is a simple yet strong statement of faith. An unfussy yet bold Star of David is formed with clean lines of 14K white gold, declaring a timeless message. In the center of this gleaming emblem is a simply-styled cross, adding significance and extra shine. This shining piece measures 25mm high (about an inch), making it a versatile size for any day. This go-anywhere pendant is also available in 14K yellow gold for those in search of a meaningful piece with a warm gleam, as well as in sterling silver, offering a sleek, cool choice for those on a budget.
The Messianic Star of David Cross Pendant in 14K Yellow Gold provides a petite and gleaming accent with a rich texture and an even richer meaning. A shining cross is proudly placed in the center of a diamond-cut Star of David, creating a symbol that you treasure your faith and your heritage. Beaded edges frame the elegant lines that form this sophisticated star.
The Star of David Diamond Cross Pendant in 14K Gold features a Star of David similar to that of the aforementioned yellow gold Star of David pendant, complete with diamond-cut accents and beaded edges, but it has a two-tone look that makes the cross in the center stand out. This cross is rhodium-plated, giving it a cool, gleaming look that draws eyes. A single diamond sparkles from the center of this cross, declaring that your faith is precious to you.
Any of these pieces of Jewish Jewelry would make a lovely gift or a fitting symbol of your own faith and heritage. For Easter, for Passover and for any day, they’re meaningful picks.
