«Zephyr»

Cross Pendant

 

– Does this road lead to the church?

– This is Varlam St. It will not take you to a church.

– Then what's the use of it? What good is a road, if it doesn't lead to church?

From "Repentance", feature film  

 

Cross pendant "Zephyr" – all roads lead to the church. Moreover, when people begin their journey, they are driven by Faith, but Holy tailwind helps not to stray from the chosen path. The ancients believed that Zephyr the tailwind always lead to home by gaining force from the luminary. And a human home is there, where Heavenly Father is. The Greeks believed Zephyr to be rapid and powerful, Romans – easy and delightful. 

Artisans of the Lobortas Classic Jewelry House saw and created the neck cross "Zephyr" to be so rapid and easy. Neck cross is canonical, of classical Slavic form, although St. Dimitry of Rostov wrote: "Not to the number of beams, not to the number of ends, the Christ’s cross is honored by us, but to Christ himself, with whose most holy blood it was covered" (XVIII century). Neck cross "Zephyr" is a Byzantine lush, made by jewelers in the Byzantine Orthodox traditions. Goldsmiths painted the Orthodox shrine with hot cloisonné enamels. Byzantine enamels were distinguished by exceptional artistic merits, brightness, solidity and longevity. 

In addition, today, cleanliness of color palette and unique compositions of enamels have let artisans of Lobortas Classic Jewelry House create real masterpieces. 

Golden lace of the "Zephyr" neck cross, unique, daunting ligatured engraving, diamonds and warm colors of the artwork is a pure Zephyr, solar and giving hope.
