The rose of Sharon appears in Song of Solomon, a book of the Bible that expresses the beauty of love between a man and a woman as a metaphor for the love between Christ and his bride—the Church.
Say’s the beloved, “I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” Her lover responds in affirmation, “As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women.” (Song of Solomon 2:1-2)
There is no place this symbol—the rose of Sharon—fits more appropriately than next to the cross. It was at the cross that the greatest love the world has ever known reached its peak. Jesus Christ, consumed by love for us, gave his life as a sacrifice so that we could know the peace and love of God. We, in return, pledge our all-consuming love for Christ when we trust in him for the forgiveness of our sins.
Celebrate the beauty and power of this all-consuming love with the Rose of Sharon Pendant. The branch and flower design, crafted of 14k gold is exquisitely and undeniably feminine—a charming gift for a Christian woman this spring as you celebrate Easter, confirmation, graduation, or Mother’s Day.
