The symbol of the cross has hundreds of variants in design, representing some of the history and development of Christianity as a whole as found on the silver cross necklaces collection by Laurel Elliott. Like all Christian crosses, this small cross is a symbol of faith. Here it is represented at its most simple, the Latin Cross or 'crux ordinaria'. It is vertically inscribed on the reverse: BELIEVE. To ensure the chain does not detract from the message, the cross design has been pierced to receive it, in a manner suggestive of Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This also allows the chain to be rearranged so that the cross can be worn horizontally or vertically. Great Christian jewelry gifts under $100.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
