"He told them, "This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." (Luke 24:46-47)
Perfectly combining the crucifix and the budded cross (also known as the Apostle's cross) this Antiqued Budded Clover Crucifix in Sterling Silver is both meaningful and stylish. The suffering Christ is placed upon a cross that's named for the three spheres (or "buds") that adorn each arm, and that's been given numerous meanings. For instance, some say that these three buds are a picture of the Holy Trinity; others believe that they represent a faith that is always vibrant and growing; still others hold that the total of 12 buds on this cross are symbols of the 12 apostles.
Whichever meaning rings truest to you, this cross is rich with both significance and style. A simple circle-shaped bail keeps the eye fixed on this crucifix pendant's unique design, while an antiqued finish adds contrasts and draws attention to the details. This sterling silver pendant is an elegant way to remember what Christ did for you.
Cross measures 19mm (3/4") x 12mm (1/2") not including bail.
