I've been attracted to cross necklaces my entire life, without knowing why. I recently came across a baby picture in which I was wearing a tiny Black Hills Gold cross. Was that the beginning of what's now become a large collection of cross necklaces? I wonder.

Whether you embrace a traditional crucifix, marking the end of Jesus' earthly life and the beginning of his spiritual impact on millions, or you simply embrace it for its beauty and simplicity, it can be a symbolic reminder of your devotion to those things greater than yourself. 

Cross necklaces often become a most beloved item - one that's worn in times of stress and grief, as well as in celebration of life and the abundant gifts of the world.
