Classic 585 (14-karat) rose gold Orthodox baptismal (christening) cross features highly-detailed sculpted Crucifix made of 585 (14-karat) white gold and acronym 'INЦI' in Church Slavonic (Latin: 'INRI') represents the inscription 'Іисусъ Назарянинъ, Царь Іудейскій' (Latin: 'Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum', or English: 'Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews') placed atop the cross as ordered by the Roman prefect of Judaea Pontius Pilate. The reverse of the cross bears the inscription 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save' [me, oh my God]) for protection from demonic attacks and negative energy. This Orthodox cross pendant is befitting a woman as much as a child.
