Trust this 585 (14-karat) rose and white gold Orthodox cross to make a loud and clear statement of your faith and spiritual values. The front of the cross bears a tiny diamond symbolizes the tears of the Virgin shed when her son Jesus was crucified, a miniature sculpted Crucifix, and the inscriptions in Church Slavonic language: 'IC XC' - 'Іисусъ Христосъ' ('Jesus Christ') and 'NИКА' (derivative of the Greek verb 'nikē - conquest'). This word at the base of the cross is reminiscent of the Appearance of the Cross with the inscription 'In this sign thou shalt conquer' before the Emperor Constantine to signify the triumph of Christ over death and hell. The tips of the crossbars of this cross are made as a trefoil to symbolize the Holy Trinity: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The inscription 'Спаси и Сохрани' (Russian for 'Protect and Save [me, oh my God]') on the reverse glorifies the Lord and protects from demonic attacks and negative energy.
The size and design of this body cross make it best suited for women and children.
