The Jerusalem Cross is also referred to as a five-fold cross, cross-and-crosslets, heraldic cross, Christian cross and Crusader's Cross.
It is said that this cross represents the Five Wounds of Christ.
It is also the flag of the Country of Georgia where it is said to symbolize Jesus Christ the Savior and the four evangelists.
The necklace is 22 inches long and the cross is 7/8 inch high. Please message me if you would prefer a different length chain.
This fine replica piece is cast in solid gold bronze using the lost wax method and produced in the U.S.A. The oxidation finishing process prevents tarnishing from contact with air. Excessive skin oils may darken the backside of the medal. It is also best to not wear gold bronze in water. A polishing cloth is included so the medal can be polished to the original appearance. You would not damage the medal by contact with water since it is solid gold bronze (not a plating), but it may darken and need additional polishing.
This cross is available in sterling silver, bronze, antique gold and shiny gold bronze. Please see this link to view the options. https://www.etsy.com/shop/HolyMomentsDotCom?search_query=jerusalem+cross
An original Holy Moments® piece.
Thank you for visiting my Holy Moments Etsy Shop! This has been my personal shopping account on Etsy for years. I recently decided to open an Etsy shop and display a selection of products from my established Holy Moments on-line and show company (HolyMoments.com).
The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments. Many pieces are only a few of a kind due to limited availability of certain gemstones or hand cast items. New, exciting products are always being added to both the Etsy shop and company website.
A portion of profits are donated to the Cancer Research Institute in New York, a leader in immunotherapy research. Please read my shop story for more.
