This Russian cross pendant made of sandblasted 585 rose gold and featuring body of Jesus made of white gold and a delicate laser engraving with inscriptions in Old Slavonic language praising Christ and Christianity: IHЦI (INRI) given by Pontius Pilate and means 'Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorem' (translation to Russian 'Иисус Назаретянский-Царь Иудейский'), НИКА (from Nike-the winged Goddess of Victory means 'Jesus Christ Conquers' and signifies Christ's triumph over death and purgatory), IC XC (Иисус Христос-Jesus Christ), ГГ (Гора Голгофа - Golgotha mount). On the reverse side of the cross there is an inscription in Cyrillic 'Спаси и Сохрани' ('Save and Protect'). This design composition is classical for Russian gold crucifix and Russian gold cross pendants.
