Russian Orthodox body crosses in America. One of the oldest forms of the crucifix, the Orthodox crucifix is also the form of true cross. This trefoil silver cross is decorated with an elaborately engraved inscription in Church Slavonic language praising the Christ and Christianity: IC XC (Jesus Christ), ЦС (The King of Glory), and НИКА (to signify Christ's triumph over death and purgatory). On the reverse side of the cross there is an inscription in Russian Спаси и Сохрани (Save and Protect) typical for Russian and Ukrainian Orthodox crosses. It is an excellent choice for those looking for a christening cross and may be considered a women's cross.
