Starting a new year means letting go of the old one. In the Bible, Paul says “forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13b-14). The Bible also teaches us that we can accomplish all things through Christ who strengthens us, and this important message in the book of Philippians lives on in our gold cross pendant. This simply made but beautifully crafted cross pendant is an emblem of that promise and the grace of a loving God. The plain cross pendant is crafted of high quality 14K yellow gold, giving it a traditional beauty, and the clean lines form a classic Christian cross. The gold cross pendant is given just the right amount of depth without being too heavy, and then polished for a smooth shimmer. It is a favorite among our collection of Gold Crosses.
