Cross Pendant

 

God breathed and the man became a living soul from a clump of clay. Then He breathed, and the word of God broke out. God breathed once again, and a prayer sounded... 

Cross pendant "Flowering Spring" is an Inspiration. The inspiration moved the hands of jewelers. And fire was a joint author of the artisans. By working in the technique of hot cloisonne enamel on gold, enamelers managed to achieve subtle gradients of all shades of blue. According to Christian canons, blue is the color of the sky, humbleness, and the color of the Virgin Mary's cloak. 

Neck cross "Flowering Spring" is scattered with sapphires, colored as the heavenly expanse. Theologians of the middle ages believed that sapphire was the noblest one of the noble ones, because only this stone may reflect limitlessly high heavens. 

St. Bonaventure wrote that the cross of Christ is an adorned tree, full of mellow fruits and all believers must become soaked with such food in a blissful space beyond the stars. 

Neck Cross "Flowering Spring" is a heavenly garden, where the Tree of Life always blooms and bears fruits 12 times a year, and the Lord never prohibits eating them.
