Byzantine cross necklaces have the characteristic slanted footrest, the “up” side indicating the side on which hung the “good thief” next to Jesus on Calvary. It symbolizes the victory of Good over Evil through the Crucifixion. The more ornate of the crosses are the St. Olga crosses which are available in silver or gold. Also available is the St. Andrew cross in sterling silver as well as the less known Dagmar cross necklace. These beautiful necklaces, sometimes called Orthodox cross necklaces, are a thoughtful gift for your Eastern Catholic or Orthodox friends and family.
