An Orthodox cross is one of the oldest and most revered hallmarks of Orthodox Christianity. Due to a traditional design a classical Orthodox cross is also known as Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian, Greek, Byzantine or Eastern cross and is considered an authentic Orthodox symbol of faith.
Our collection of Orthodox cross pendants imported directly from Russia features the body crosses for children, women and men, and crucifixes made of rose gold or rose and white gold combination. Hand-crafted in the medieval Russian town of Kostroma, all artisanal Russian Orthodox crosses from this collection bring together traditional canons of Russian Orthodox Church and the latest advancements in jewelry technique. These cross pendants are decorated with elaborately engraved inscriptions in Old Church Slavonic language praising the Lord and Christianity. The reverse of the crosses always features an ever-present message in Russian 'Спаси и сохрани' ('Save and Protect') typical for the Russian Orthodox crosses. Some Eastern Slavic crosses are adorned with perfect Russian diamonds. Due to exquisite details these Orthodox crosses are as much of jewelry masterpieces as religious symbols.
