The three barred Orthodox cross, often referred to as the Saint Andrew cross or simply the Eastern cross, is a frequent symbol in the Eastern Orthodox faith and is often incorporated into other cross designs such as the St.Olga cross. The reason for its importance is the potency with which it refers to what happened at Christ's passion. This particular St.Andrew cross features an attractive etched design in a small proportion ideal for any Eastern Orthodox Baptism. Pictured here with our Standard Box Link chain.
These Orthodox crosses are die struck in solid gold and available in your choice of 14K yellow or 14K white gold. Thin, lightweight design for affordable gift giving.
All of our gold Orthodox crosses come with a jewelry box. If you are not purchasing a chain the cross will be secured in place with a metal U-pin.
