This 585 (14-karat) two-tone gold crucifix pendant is an ideal choice of a Christian cross pendant for him. Its art composition is typical for the canonical Orthodox and Greek Catholic* body crucifixes. The front features symbols of Christianity: the small plate with acronym IНЦI (INRI) nailed to the top of the cross by Pontius Pilate's order means 'Іисус Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Latin: 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum'), IC XC means 'Іисусъ Христосъ' ('Jesus Christ'), the skull at the base of the cross represents the ashes of Adam, whose sins were washed away with blood of Christ on Golgotha. Reverse of the cross carries the inscription 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save' [me, oh my God]) to ward off the evil eye and dissolve negative energy.
*Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church is an Eastern type local (parochial) Catholic Church that uses Orthodox attributes including body crosses of orthodox design. Body crosses from our collection are well suited both for Eastern Orthodox Christians and for the adherents of the Eastern Catholic Church.
