This unique sideways cross necklace is a part of The Emergi Collection: ‘Emergi’ - to rise up, emerge, free one’s self. Adornment for those extra special moments in life, designed to celebrate life, love, and joy.

Hand formed and slightly hammered mini sideways cross necklace made in your choice of sterling silver, yellow gold-filled, or 14k yellow gold, with easy to use lobster clasp. This is a perfect everyday necklace, and also makes a great gift.

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- 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.

At the end of the day, the true meaning of the sideway cross will depend on the person who is wearing it.

Each cross is handmade, so will vary slightly from photo, but it will be beautiful! Cross is about 1/2 inch x 1/4 inch. Chain length is your choice of 15, 16, or 18 inches. Gently wipe clean any tarnish with a polishing cloth or with mild, dish soap.
