Solid 10kt yellow gold cross pendant
Dimensions: 3/4" wide by 1 3/8" high 

A 19th century Slavic design engraved with the Russian St. Andrew Cross, with IC XC for "Jesus Christ", a dove symbolizing the holy spirit, and a floral design at the base, indicating that the cross has been planted in Paradise and is the tree of life. Tradiiton teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-size three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgment he tilted the foot plate to signify that those on the right side of Christ will go up into heaven and those on the left will go down into hell. On the reverse is the Slavonic phrase "spasi I Sokhrani", meaning "save and protect".

Blessed by the clergy at our affiliated church.
