Item Description

This beautiful Greek Cross in 14K Yellow Gold features and engraved design on the arms and another Greek Cross design in the center. The Greek Cross is one of the oldest styles of Christian Cross that has been in use by Christians since at least the 4th century. Before the time of the emperor Constantine in the 4th century, Christians were very cautious about displaying the cross openly because it could identify them as Christians and make them vulnerable mockery, persecution, torture, or death. After Constantine converted to Christianity in the early 4th century and legalized the observance of the Christian Faith, he promoted and popularized symbols of the Christian faith, both the cross and the chi-rho monogram of the name of Christ.

(See our Chi Rho Crosses in 14K Gold.)

The Cross became very popular in Christian art and memorial monuments from the mid-4th century.

The Greek Cross appears on the national flags of Greece, England, Georgia, Malta, Switzerland, and Tonga. The Greek Cross also appears on the regional or city flags in the United Kingdom including Cornwall, Derbyshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, London, and Wales.
