Men’s jewelry with cross pendants are rich with symbolism. In ancient times, the horizontal line stood for the earth; the vertical line for heaven. Together, the two lines represented the union of heaven and earth. Christians believe the vertical line represents their connection to God, while the horizontal line represents connections to other people. The cross acquired special significance through the crucifixion of Jesus and remains a powerful symbol of sin and redemption. The Biblical significance of the cross has given rise to many variations: the Celtic cross, the Templar cross, the Maltese cross and, last but not least, the summit cross. Growing modern-day interest in the Middle Ages has made the cross an integral part of men’s jewelry.


Men’s jewelry with snake pendants scintillate in many mythological facets.
Snakes possess a certain mythical fascination around the globe. Many cultures attribute supernatural abilities to them.
In the Bible, the snake represents temptation and seduction. Ancient Egyptians worshipped a snake goddess, and then a serpent god that opposed Ra, the sun god. In India, snakes are honored as symbols of vital energy. Ancient Greeks saw snakes as holy creatures that could remain forever young by sloughing off their skins. They were said to have healing powers and thus became a symbol for physicians and pharmacists. In Italy, a small town in Abruzzo holds a snake procession every year. Some Native American tribes view snakes as divine messengers. And the Australian aborigines believe the Rainbow Serpent controls water and is a life-giving protector that keeps nature in its original state.

Men’s jewelry with mythical creature pendants is also popular. Like the cross and snake, mythical creatures touch our subconscious and stimulate our imagination. They often have a long tradition and play pivotal roles in sagas and myths.
