Silver St. Vladimir Cross Pendant


Solid Sterling Silver

Dimensions: 7/8" wide by 1 1/2" high 

This elegant 19th century design incorporates the St. Andrew Cross, a repeating outline at the points and a floral decoration which presents the cross of Christ as the tree of life in Paradise. Tradition 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".
