Story

Metaphors often associated with the life of Jesus cover this splendid 18k gold antique cross.

Lily flowers on one face, and roses on the other need no explanation, for their use in reference to Jesus Christ is ubiquitous.

All who are familiar with symbols surrounding Him and His resurrection will recall that the white calla lily flowers have long represented purity, rebirth, and redemption. While lilies are incorporated into many an Easter celebration.

On the other face, trails of wild roses cover the surface. Red roses are linked to Christ's suffering on the cross and the blood He shed. White roses, again for redemption and resurrection, and the thorns of His crown remind us of earthly pain.

The hand engraved surfaces include the flower's stems and leaves. Superlative in every aspect, you won't come across finer engraving. The background is minutely textured, not just with a random pattern, but tightly packed whorls and groupings of engraved marks forming almost shell like surfaces.

Devotion and artistry combined.
