Breathtakingly appealing, meaningful and sophisticated, this diamond Orthodox cross pendant in 585 (14-karat) rose and white gold is undeniably desirable. Due to exquisite details and beautiful diamond it's more than a mere religious symbol, but also a contemporary piece of jewelry for women. Cross embraces a miniature sculpted Crucifix with acronyms 'IC XC' signifying 'Іисусъ Христосъ' (Church Slavonic for 'Jesus Christ'), 'ГГ' stands for 'Golgotha', 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. A tiny diamond, mounted atop this cross, symbolizes the tears of the Virgin shed when her son Jesus was crucified. 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.
