The composition of this openwork cross is typical for Orthodox crosses made in the northern provinces of Russia. The main crossbars are crowned by a silver trefoil that symbolizes the Holy Trinity and the Resurrection. Two inscriptions in Church Slavonic language praise the Lord and the Christianity: The acronym IHЦI (INRI) represents the inscription "Іисус Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій" (Latin: "Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum", English: "Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews") placed atop the cross as ordered by Pontius Pilate and IC XC (Іисусъ Христосъ-Jesus Christ). The reverse features an ever-present message Спаси и Cохрани (Protect and save me, oh my God). This Russian silver crucifix pendant is not solely a religious symbol, but also a beautiful piece of men's jewelry.
