Easter is just a few days away! More than any other time of year, this is a time when we hear a lot about Christ’s ultimate gift of love: the gift of His sacrifice on the cross and of the new life that’s offered to all people as result of His victory over death. Thus, no time is better than the present for a cross pendant that combines the symbol of Christ’s sacrifice with the enduring emblem of love.
The Apostle John summed up Christ’s ultimate demonstration of love: “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (I John 4:9-10) Cross and heart pendants are the perfect way to keep a reminder of this love close to your own heart.
The Cross and Heart Diamond Pendant in 14K White Gold is a perpetually popular option. A simple gleaming white gold cross is surrounded by a sweeping heart that wraps around it like a tender embrace, helping to communicate the love that was demonstrated in epic fashion on the cross 2,000 years ago. This heart is studded with eight diamonds which help to draw the eye to this meaningful design.
The Celtic Heart Cross Pendant in 14K Gold provides an Irish-inspired twist as lines of gleaming yellow gold curve and twist to fill the silhouette of a cross with a repeating motif that speaks of the endless love of the Savior. This filigree-like design is graceful, feminine and sophisticated as it hangs from a simple shining bale.
Two-tone crosses like the 14K Two-Tone Gold Heart and Cross Pendant use the contrast between two colors to add emphasis, not only to these pendants’ designs, but also to the messages that they convey. This 1 1/8”-high cross is crafted from warm yellow gold, and given a hammered finish that’s both subtle and classy. Adding subdued yet eye-catching contrast is the simple heart of rose gold that sits in the center of this cross, providing a touch of pinkish glow.
If you’d prefer a cross that draws eyes with gemstones in contrasting colors, try the Diamond and Ruby Cross Pendant in 14K White Gold. The center of this cross is adorned with a 2mm heart-shaped ruby, while 15 channel-set diamonds glitter from its beams, seeming to radiate from the center stone. Cool, shining white gold provides the perfect foundation for these gems as they send a message of God’s radiant love.
In addition to serving as reminders of the love that was the motivation for Christ’s ultimate sacrifice, these pendants are also reminders to love those around us: Right after the aforementioned verses, the Apostle John wrote, “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” Cross and heart pendants are the perfect ways to symbolize both Christ’s love and the way that we are to reflect that love to others.
