The East West Cross

crosss1We had a conversation in the office last week about the significance of the “East West Cross” in jewelry design, and we thought it would make a good topic of discussion here. For the East West Cross Jewelry Collection, instead of the vertical cross, it is placed horizontally. To some, especially for the older generation, this can be quite controversial.

We think it looks modern, yet dramatic, but still conveys the symbol of Christianity. There has been some different interpretations about the sideways cross and its meaning, but it says in the Bible, Psalm 103:12: “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.” The horizontal orientation of the jewelry, basically means that Jesus Christ has actually risen and that the cross has been laid down to signify that humanity has been saved.

The sideways cross is also on the flags of Sweden, Finland and Denmark. It is a patriotic symbol of honor and pride.

Do you like this look? We would like to know your thoughts! Comment below.
