"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 4:10)
Webster's Dictionary defines "baroque" as "of, relating to, or having the characteristics of a style of artistic expression prevalent especially in the 17th century that is marked generally by use of complex forms, bold ornamentation, and the juxtaposition of contrasting elements often conveying a sense of drama, movement, and tension." This definition perfectly describes the eye-catching style of this Baroque INRI Sterling Silver Crucifix Pendant. The suffering Christ is depicted on a meticulously-crafted cross that keeps the eye moving with its decorative swirls and shapes as it hangs from a simple circle-shaped bail. The ends of each arm of this cross call to mind a fleur-de-lis, a symbol that some have used to represent the Holy Trinity.
The antiqued finish of this design adds contrast to each element of its eye-catching style, helping each one stand out. Crafted from .925 sterling silver, this is a shining reminder of Christ's sacrifice.
Cross measures 38mm (1 +") x 25mm (1") not including bail.
