Solid Gold Ichthus Pendants and Necklaces

 Ichthus is the Greek word for fish. As an acronym, it means:“Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior”

In the first three centuries of persecution, Christians used to identify each other by casually drawing the Ichthus, the fish, in the dirt or sand. If the other person responded, it was good. If they did not, it was just an idle doodle.


“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47).

In the early church, Christians were persecuted and needed a way to identify themselves to each other without revealing their identity to those who wished to harm them. That’s when the first ichthus was used. Today, you don’t have to draw a fish in the sand to identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior. Choose instead to wear a beautiful 14K solid gold plain, polished ichthus pendant, from Apples of Gold Jewelry.

The ichthus portion of the pendant measures 7/8″ wide x 5/16″ tall (or 11/16″ tall with hoop / bail) and has a gold weight of approx. 1.07 grams of 14k solid gold. Add a matching 0.75mm 14k solid gold box chain necklace in 18″ or 20″ (optional). This Christian jewelry is made in the USA and ships for free! We have a large collection of Ichthus Jewelry for your consideration!


“And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men” (Luke 5:10).

When Jesus invited James and John to follow Him, did He tell them they would “catch men”? Or did He tell them they would be meeting the needs of others? Instead of fishing for themselves, was He telling them to fish for the sake of others? This is something to ponder.

And wearing this lovely ichthus necklace is a great way to start that conversation with someone else! Made of 14k solid gold, the ichthus symbol comprises the name of Jesus and shapes it like a fish. Add a gold chain (optional) and you have an instant gift for someone you know who follows the Savior. Match it with other Christian Jewelry from our expanding collection and you’ll please every person on your holiday list this year!


“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).

Jesus fed the crowds with a few fish and loaves, but He, Himself, is the Bread of Life. You can proclaim your reliance on the Lord of Life when you wear this enduring symbol close to your heart. The pendant is made from 14K yellow gold and features a simple design – an Ichthus fish. The pendant measures 3/4 inch tall by just under 5/16 inch wide, and is also available in just under 1 inch tall by 3/8 inch wide. This pendant would look stunning with a variety of chains, whether you are choosing a new chain or one that you already have at home.

And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 1And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.  And they straightway left their nets, and followed him” (Matthew 4:18-20).

In 1886, an American minister from Topeka, Kansas began a series of sermons that always ended with the same question: What would Jesus do? Charles Sheldon kept his congregants returning by leaving each sermon with a cliffhanger that was answered the next week as they tackled the social problems of their day. In 2021, those who follow the Son of God are still asking. To remind yourself (or as a gift to remind someone else), wear this WWJD ichthus symbol to remember to consider God’s character when making the decisions you have to face. It’s part of our growing collection of Christian Jewelry.


“And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him” (Matthew 9:9).

Not everybody is drawn to yellow gold, so we at Apples of Gold offer our same solid gold ichthus pendant in 14k white gold as well. It’s the same quality and size as the yellow ichthus shown (above), but in the more versatile white color so popular today. We present to you our polished plain Ichthus pendant. The ichthus part of the pendant measures 7/8″ wide x 5/16″ tall (or 11/16″ tall with hoop / bail) and has a gold weight of approx. 1.14 grams of 14k solid gold. Add a matching 14k white gold 0.75mm box chain necklace in 18″ or 20″ (optional).
