by Israeli jewelry designer Marina
The Jerusalem Cross is comprised of one large cross with four smaller crosses in the corners – the central cross representing Jesus and the smaller the four gospels and the four directions in which to spread the Word of G-d. While some may hesitate to wear a Jerusalem Cross because its origins are in the Crusades, this is not necessary. The modern interpretation of the Jerusalem Cross is for anyone who prays for the peace of Jerusalem and keeps Jerusalem in their hearts.
This Jerusalem Cross Pendant is made of yellow gold-fill with a genuine red garnet at its center representing the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Dimensions: 1/2 x 1/2 inch | 1.3 cm x 1.3 cm and includes 18" gold filled necklace gift boxed.
What is Gold Filled Jewelry vs Gold Plated and why buy? When deciding on a gold jewelry item there are always many different terms that come up. The most popular are Solid Gold, Gold Filled, and Gold Plated. It is important to know the differences between Gold Filled jewelry and Gold Plated jewelry when making your choice. Solid gold is of course an exquisite piece of jewelry. Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold. Gold plating is the lower level and these items tend to tarnish and can often times turn the skin green.
Gold Filled: Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold! Caring for Gold Filled: Caring for Gold Filled items is as easy as caring for any gold jewelry. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth.
