There are a few beliefs for the meaning of the sideways cross. One meaning is that it represents the earth. It also represents the human race and that the horizontal orientation of the cross means that the humanity is positioned right in the middle of heaven and hell. This makes it a neutral symbol. Because of this meaning, some people say that wearing a sideways cross necklace means that you are aware of your place in this existence; And that you are grounded here on earth.

There are also people who believe that the sideways orientation of a necklace symbolizes Jesus Christ carrying the cross, this is one of my favorite interpretations.

It has also been based on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The horizontal orientation of the necklace connotes that Jesus Christ has actually risen and that the cross has already been laid down to signify that humanity has been saved. Sideway crosses are even engraved in tombstones and graves to symbolize resurrection of the soul during the coming of Judgment Day. At the end of the day, the true meaning of the sideway cross will depend on the person who is wearing it.

Choose your chain length, available in 14k gold, gold filled, and sterling silver. Each cross is handmade, so will vary slightly from photo, but it will be beautiful! Sideways cross measures about 1 inch by 1/2 inch.

Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling jewelry by keeping them in airtight packages and store in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
