This 585 (14-karat) rose and white gold Prayer cross pendant is handcrafted in Russia to strict requirements of the Orthodox Church. Crucifix carries the body of Jesus made of white gold over rose gold pattern with symbols typical for Orthodoxy: All Seeing Eye, 'IНЦI' (Latin: 'INRI') nailed to the cross by Pontius Pilate stated 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum' (Church Slavonic: 'Іисусъ Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій', English: 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews'), the acronym 'IC XC' ('Іисусъ Христосъ' - Church Slavonic for 'Jesus Christ') and NИКА (derived from the Greek verb nikē - 'conquest') to signify Christ's triumph over death and purgatory. Reverse of the cross bears the prayer: 'Да воскреснет Бог и расточатся врази Его...' (Russian for 'Let God Arise'...) to ward off the evil eye and dissolve negative energy. This masterpiece of religious jewelry-making will make a perfect statement of faith for men.
