Cross Pendant

 

"When Christ the Lord carried the cross on His shoulders, the cross was four-pointed then; because there was still neither titlo, nor the foot".

Saint Dimitry of Rostov (XVIII century)  

 

Cross pendant "Classic" is the cross of Suffering, the cross of Life. 

Artisans of the "Lobortas" Classic Jewelry House glorified the Son of God, Prince of Peace and the Savior in gold and enamel. 

Tetracrepid cross first appeared in the Roman catacombs of the 3rd century. Now the Orthodox East considers four-pointed cross equal to others. After all, it is not the form of the cross, but the image of Jesus Christ on it is important. 

Jewelers have created this image, giving it very naturalistic features. Flour and human suffering remind us of the great sacrifice of the One who came for the sake of our Salvation. 

Ceremonial colors of hot enamels resemble church mosaics. They are as if illuminated from within by candles and lamps, and it seems that already the eternal words sound: 

Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven...
