Wearing a crucifixion symbol is an old Catholic tradition. What does the crucifix represent? It is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us in carrying the cross to the Calvary and allowing his life to be taken, to resurrect triumphantly on the third day.
It teaches us that it is the life of the spirit that is most important, and that love is worthy of the sacrifice of the flesh.

Catholic Crucifix Styles
The Roman Catholic crucifix pendant has taken many artistic shapes and forms throughout the centuries. On our website you can browse some very old crucifix styles that are still very popular today. Such is the case with the Pardon crucifix, Papal Crucifix, Orthodox crucifix, Trinity crucifix and many others.
Unique Antique Crucifixes
Most of the models used to create the crucifixes in our collection are more than 100 years old. They include samples of a medieval crucifix of the Knights Templar, versions of the Celtic crucifix, and ancient crucifixes from Colonial Spain.
Best Rosary Crucifix
Most of Sacred Art Jewelry crucifixes are suitable to wear both as pendants and on a rosary. Choose a sturdy crucifix for a rosary you will be using for praying.
The more delicate ones are best reserved for a rosary necklace or to put on other faith jewelry, such as a crucifix bracelet.
Regarding sizes, a tiny small crucifix (up to an inch and a half, or 38 mm) will look wonderful on a choker and, if sturdy enough, will also work as a crucifix charm on a bracelet.
At Sacred Art Jewelry we consider a big crucifix pendant one that is two inches (50 mm) or more. Those are the ones we prefer to use on our 8 mm rosaries.
As general rule, two-inch crucifixes look great with 6 mm bead rosaries, while larger ones are best for 8 mm Ave Maria beads.
Crucifix cross pendants larger than 2 3/8 inches (60 mm) or so, are often called pectoral crucifixes when they are used around the neck.
Nowadays, more faithful Catholics like to make a statement about their faith with jewelry. Wearing a crucifix has never been easier with all the lovely, top quality choices you can find on Sacred Art Jewelry. Creating a new Catholic crucifix necklace can be as easy as inserting the cross or crucifix to a favorite bead or chain necklace with a jump ring.
