One of the biggest blessings that we have as a result of cross is the ability to go directly to God in prayer. Since Christ bore the punishment that we deserved, we can have confidence when we approach our Heavenly Father with our needs. Two-tone cross pendants, with their bold style, celebrate this confidence while drawing attention to their message with two contrasting colors.
The author of Hebrews wrote about the confidence that we have as a result of Christ’s death and resurrection:
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Because of the cross, we can be confident, not only when we approach God, but also when we share our faith. Cross pendants that use the contrast between two metals to draw attention to their message are a lovely way to declare and celebrate this confidence.
For example, the 14K Two-Tone Gold Quilted Cross Pendant beautifully demonstrates the way that two differently-colored metals can call attention to a message of faith. The main body of this lovely 1 3/16″-high pendant is crafted from 14K yellow gold and given a unique quilted texture, as well as a polished finish that instantly draws the eye. In contrast, caps of 14K white gold cover the ends of each arm of this cross as it hangs from a shining white gold bale.
The Two Hearts Cross Pendant in 14K Rose and Yellow Gold places two interlocking 14K rose gold hearts atop a polished cross of 14K yellow gold, creating a gentle contrast that subtly draws the eye. In addition to symbolizing the love of Christ, demonstrated on a cross, these intertwining hearts also represent the bond between two people who are joined by their faith. At just over 1 3/16″ high, this piece makes its message known in a manner that’s unashamed, but that doesn’t shout.
Apples of Gold’s selection of Gold crucifixes contains a number of pendants that use two colors of gold to emphasize their message, and the Modern Crucifix Pendant in 14K Two-Tone Gold is a lovely contemporary example. This minimalistic crucifix places a stylized figure of Christ, crafted from 14K white gold, upon a single 14K yellow beam to create a pendant that calls to mind the suffering of Christ on our behalf and its relevancy today. This 1 1/4″ tall piece hangs simply and meaningfully from a shining 14K yellow gold bale.
The message of the cross is strong no matter what and two-tone cross pendants emphasize this strength in eye-catching fashion. Try one to celebrate the confidence you have through Christ.
