This is the large version of our St. Olga Orthodox cross. Made in solid 14K gold (or sterling silver), this classic Orthodox cross is a high quality, extra thick gauge.

You will notice exceptional detail and finishing because these Orthodox crosses are made in small batches, not mass produced.
The St.Olga cross is a classic Orthodox cross design that includes several symbols meaningful to the Orthodox Christian faith. At the top is a sun-like symbol representing the light of Christ. The letters IC XC engraved on the arms stand for "Jesus Christ" and the three-armed St.Andrew cross embossed in the center is noted for the bottom slanted bar symbolizing the balance beam of righteousness. The back of the cross is inscribed with the phrase "Save and Protect" in Russian Cyrillic.
The St. Olga cross is a popular Byzantine style Orthodox cross worn by Russian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox, Ukrainian Orthodox, and Serbian Orthodox people. Our large version is ideal for men or women wishing to wear a large cross.
