Orthodox and Catholic cross: the difference
The Christian cross is a distinctive mark of a person. The big and chunky cross symbolises the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The pectoral cross symbolises salvation and a person's faith in Christ, crucified for the sins of others. It is worn during a special sacrament and is traditionally worn every day. It is believed to protect against the negative influence of otherworldly forces.
Today, the line between amulet and jewellery is very thin: traditional items are inlaid with precious and semi-precious stones; designs are complicated with new, unconventional designs and coated with enamel. The line between fashion accessories and a symbol of faith is blurring, but if you are sensitive to the issue of religion, it is worth knowing the difference between products for Orthodox and Catholics.
Form and design. The traditional Orthodox cross has a six- or eight-pointed shape. Above the head of Christ, there is an upper crossbar with the inscription I.N.Ts.I or I.N.T.I., attached at the direction of Pontius Pilate. In Latin - I.N.R.I. - the phrase "Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdæorvm" is encoded here. On the cross above the upper crossbar, you can find the inscription “God is the King of Glory” also in an abbreviated version.
The hands of the crucified man are nailed to the central crossbar. There is a slanting foot under the feet of Christ, as a symbol of the path from sin to purification. The lower bar was nailed after the crucifixion, focusing on the height of the person. On the reverse side of the Orthodox cross, there is a part of the inscription or engraving “Save and Protect.”
Catholic pieces are simpler in design, with only two crossbars and an image of Christ, but also have the inscription I.N.R.I.
The skull under the crossbar is the head of Adam. According to legend, he was buried on Calvary, the place where Christ was crucified. The blood seeped through the ground and washed the skull, purifying humankind from sin and bringing salvation. The Head of Adam is a symbol of atonement for sins.
The image of Christ. In the Orthodox sense, the face of Christ represents victory over death, the joy of the resurrection, but Catholics depict suffering on the face of Jesus. At the same time, in Orthodoxy, the palms are open, in Catholicism the hands are sagging on the crossbar. It is believed that he has only been depicted dead since the 10th century. Before that, Christ was "painted" alive, resurrected.
The number of nails is three in the Catholic version and four in the Orthodox version. Therefore, in the first case, Christ's legs are crossed, while in the second, they lie parallel. The Catholic version with a single nail appeared in the west in the second half of the 13th century. The vine is an eight-pointed piece with a branched vine.
The Latin cross is a product without crucifixion or nails. Christ carried him to the crucifixion. It is called Latin because the Latins crucified Jesus.

Pectoral cross: which one to choose for christening
If you have been chosen as godfather, you should consider this carefully before the sacrament. Buy a good baptismal cross in silver or pure gold? What colour? Should I give a chain as well? Both silver and gold are hypoallergenic, unlike jewellery made from non-precious alloys. Remember to buy a silver necklace, if not a precious small chain, then a silk or leather cord to wear during the ceremony. Tips on how to choose a pectoral cross for a child:
- The perfect children's cross is tiny, lightweight and without sharp corners, up to 0.8 inches long.
- The chain or string should fit freely through the opening.
- Choose the colour of the metal and cross in the same colour.
The price of the cross for sale does not determine the strength of the faith, but you should not skimp on a quality product either. The Church does not insist that the custom must be made of precious metal. However, silver ones are worn many times longer than cheaper metals. Also, consider the style and colour palette of the precious wardrobe of the person to whom you have decided to give a special gift.
The exclusive cross-shaped pendants have no crucifix or symbolic inscriptions. Such jewellery is worn over clothes and blends with any style. Moreover, religion has long been one of the fashion industry's strongest themes.

The suspension and weaving of the chain must be in harmony with each other. Versatility options include an anchor base or a carapace weaving without inserts. Crosses with chain should not be combined with any pendants, even in a mini style.
How to wear a cross correctly
The pectoral solid cross is worn close to the body - under the clothes - but only a priest may wear it. After buying it from a jewellery shop, it is important to consecrate it. Often, however, products from church shopping are already consecrated, although this point should be clarified. The consecration process is repeated in very rare cases. For example, if the jewellery has been badly damaged.
The modern cross as a symbol of faith is worn without other pendants on the same chain, because it is not only a decoration, but also a sacred sign. Items with a strong church theme look silly in images with evening gowns. For such delicate outings, it is better to buy a decorative replica with diamonds, enamel or a bright coloured inlay. Such an adornment is best paired with elegant clothes and jewellery. Can I wear a cross sterling silver and charms on the same chain? The priests give different answers to this question, so consult your mentor if you want to know more.
