A necklace with a cross is an extremely personal piece of jewelry. I own just one. I bought it shortly after my maternal grandmother passed away. Now for me, the cross wasn't necessarily representative of any religion. I've pretty much been an agnostic my entire life, not really being exposed enough to religion to form an opinion one way or the other.
But I understand how important crosses are to people, and for many different reasons. Shortly after my grandmother passed away, my desire to own a cross necklace became something very important to me. I found comfort in the thought of wearing one as a reminder of my grandmother's life, and how very significant she was to me.
A beautiful way to wear your symbol of faith would be a pearl necklace with cross. You've probably seen many different crosses, primarily hanging from some type of silver or gold chain. But can you just picture your precious cross hanging from an organic, dainty strand of pearls?
Pearls have been a symbol of nature and beauty for many years. Women who often wear them really connect to their innate charm and sophistication. A pearl necklace with cross pendant can truly become a sentimental signature piece that reflects just how much you revere the symbol of the cross.
For a more everyday look, you may want to forego an entire strand of pearls and just go with a chain with a pearl cross pendant. Pearl crosses come in a multitude of sizes, from rap star huge to a petite and demure child's pendant. The cross that I selected is a mere half inch in size. Depending on what feels comfortable and meaningful to you will help determine the size cross you decide to wear.
I feel great comfort when I wear my cross necklace. I miss my grandmother more than words could ever express. Despite her physical absence from the world, I know that her spirit lives on, especially when I reach up and gently touch my cross. It's a tangible and thoughtful way to commemorate the life of someone or something which has proven significant in your life.
I can think of no better way to remember my grandmother.
Do you wear a cross necklace? If so, what special meaning does it hold for you?
