Check this out if you appreciate a breathtaking charm of laser-cut white gold. The Golden Flamingo brand has launched a new fashion-conscious crucifix pendant with symbols of Orthodox Christianity: Diamond - a tiny natural mined diamond mounted atop of stylized crucified Jesus symbolizes the tears of the Virgin shed when her son was crucified; IC XC- acronym signifying 'Іисусъ Христосъ' (Church Slavonic for 'Jesus Christ'); ГA - Russian acronym for 'Head of Adam'; NИKA - 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; SKULL - symbolizes the ashes of Adam, the First Man, and the Progenitor of the Human Race. According to a legend, the skull at the base of the Cross is that of Adam and the blood shed by Christ over it had cleansed the humankind of sin and brought it salvation. 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 young women and teenage girls.
