Greek Cross in solid Sterling Silver
Dimensions: 13/16″ wide by 1 1/16″ high not including the bail
The Greek cross, also known as the “crux immissa quadrata,” is easily recognizable for its four arms, each of equal length. It is seen as representing the church rather than a symbol of Christ’s suffering. In the 4th century, it became the standardized symbol of Christianity and the Church when Emperor Constantine established the capital of Constantinople and advocated its use.
Handcrafted in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
