St. Olga Cross™ (Orthodox Cross) (Sterling Silver) (Large)



Solid Sterling Silver Orthodox Cross

Dimensions: 7/8″ wide by 1 3/8″ high (21mm by 35mm)

This is a 20th century Russian Orthodox cross 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.
