(1 customer review)




Solid 14kt Yellow Gold with Blue Enamel

Dimensions: 7/8″ wide by 1 3/8″ high (21mm by 34mm) Standard Gauge

This is a 20th century design engraved with the Russian St. Andrew Cross, IC XC for “Jesus Christ”, and a symbol representing the light of Christ at the top. On the reverse side is the Slavonic phrase “spasi I sokhrani”, meaning “save and protect”. Tradition teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-size three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgement he tilted the foot plate to signify that those on the right side of Christ will go up into heaven and those on the left will go down into hell.

    The pictures on the site don’t do this cross justice. I got it for my son as a baptismal cross that he can grow with/into, and I’m SO glad I did. It is a perfect weight and feels substantial, but the sheer detail and beauty of the piece is remarkable. Highly recommend.
