This Antiqued Heraldry Cross Pendant in Sterling Silver creates an eye-catching statement of faith by placing a cross within a cross and adding a deep, aged finish. At the core of this unique pendant is the simplest of crosses, rendered from two slender beams of silver. This decidedly unfussy symbol is surrounded by a budded cross, an emblem so called because of the three round "buds" that emerge from each arm. A number of meanings have been attributed to these buds: some say that they symbolize ever-growing faith; others state that each group of three is a picture of the three persons of the Trinity; still others say that the 12 buds in all that accent this cross stand for the 12 apostles. The space in between these two crosses has been given a dark antiqued finish that adds a sense of depth to this pendant and that makes this eye-catching design really pop.
Cross measures 22mm (7/8") x 14mm (9/16") not including bail.
