Cross Pendant

 

"For consider all the things in the world, whether without this form they could be administered or have any community."

St. Justin Martyr, "Apologia"  

 

Perhaps, there are no symbols in human history more famous than the cross. For more than two millenniums, Christians have crossed themselves, but the power of rood used to help people before. However, bypassing the faiths and centuries, today the cross is a leader in the hierarchy of sacred symbols. After all, the cross is a purification, an enlightenment, a gateway to future eternal life and forgiveness. 

Its miraculous image accompanies a person at every turn: vision seeker will find the cross in lines on the palm of one's hand, in the flower burst, in interweaving of branches, in the stars in the sky...

Cross pendant "Starfall". Artisans of the "Lobortas" Classic Jewelry House saw a great symbol in the flight of the stars and captured it with gold and precious stones. Jewelers have painted the cross with hot cloisonné enamels by hand, and here a beautiful sunny flower, the joy of eternal heaven and meeting with the Heavenly Father, has bloomed in the heart. Byzantine form of the cross was basic for the artist. St. John of Kronstadt called such cross 'Russian' one, because according to the churchly legend, Prince Vladimir took similar cross from Korsun and installed it on the bank of the Dnieper River, over Kiev. A scattering of stars and diamonds only accentuate the greatness and beauty of sacrificial love.
