Lent is a time of preparation for the celebration of Christ's glorious Resurrection, and is marked by prayer, penance, repentance, fasting/self-denial and almsgiving. You may be thinking, if Lent is such a serious, contemplative time, a time when believers "give up" or "offer up" something for these forty days, why is this post about jewelry?
Cross pendants: St. Xenia Cross #5525 is rich with Christian symbolism, from the St. Andrews cross adorning the center to the vine design at the base that represents the Cross as the Tree of Life. A customer favorite, Alpha/Omega Chi Rho Cross #5267 makes a statement that the wearer recognizes Jesus Christ as the Alpha and the Omega, "the first and the last, and there is no God besides me..." (Isaiah 44:6). To view our wide selection, see Cross Pendants in Gold, Silver, Platinum and Stainless Steel.
Shroud Crucifix in Tri-Color Gold #5438. A rose gold shroud drapes the arms, signifying that while Christ died on the Cross, He rose from the dead, leaving His burial wrappings in the tomb.
