Meaning of the Anchor, Cross, Heart

At first glance, being that the anchor, cross and heart are three intertwined symbols and convey a spiritual truth, it is immediately reminiscent and a scriptural allusion to the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, who are also three in one (1 John 5:7). But more than that, each symbol represents a specific spiritual truth of its own in its Christian context.


The heart in heart anchor cross charms and other jewelry and art forms represents the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. We love Christ, because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). The bible describes true love as self-sacrificial love. Because of such great and selfless love, while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8), God sent His own Son into the world to save us from the penalty of sin. This leaders us to the most popular Bible verse in modern times: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Jesus is not only our Rock, but our Anchor as well. The anchor in heart anchor cross charms and other jewelry and art forms represents the faithfulness and steadfast love of Jesus Christ for every Christian believer.

Hebrews 6:18-19:

That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;

The anchor in the charm cross pendant signifies the eternal security we have in Christ. Jesus has made us this immutable promise, by which HE cannot lie: “… I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).

The anchor speaks of the faithfulness of God towards us and our faithfulness in response to His love.


Christ’s love culminates in the greatest sacrifice of all time, in that when we did not deserve it, Jesus Christ, the son of God, became flesh and made atonement for us by dying on the cross and resurrecting on the third day.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2.

The Roman cross, an instrument of death is now a symbol of Christian faith. Only the power of God can achieve such a miraculously ironic feat. Love conquers death and Christ triumphs over death and hell.

All human experience points to the cross as the focal point of history. The Jewish believers looked forward in anticipation to the coming of their Messiah and foreshadowed Jesus in animal blood sacrifices until the real Sacrifice occurred and Christians today look back in history to the Cross as their means of atonement, Substitution, and salvation. Everything comes back the cross.

The combined elements of the heart anchor cross symbols coalesce to form a deeply meaningful and spiritual work of art and Christian jewelry that will continue to span the ages.
