This Greek Orthodox 12 KT gold filled cross 5/8" is on an 18" gold filled chain. A simple and beautiful high polished gold filled cross.
The original design of the Orthodox Cross is one with equivalent sides. That is because when turned diagonally, it forms the Greek letter "chi"(X), the Greek initial for Christ. This is what is known today as the Greek Cross since the Eastern Orthodox or Russian Church primarily adopts a different design. However, other plain crosses with no additional decorations also tend to be characterized as Greek crosses regardless if the bottom side is lengthier than the other three sides of the cross.
Gifted in a blue velour clam shell jewelry box.
