Eleven years ago I purchased this crucifix, and have worn it daily as a pectoral cross ever since. Since that time I have given one to each of my three sons, two as Confirmation gifts, and the other at graduation. And I have also begun the practice of giving one to our godsons on their graduations. They all love it just as I do, and it carries special meaning for us all.
i purchased the small chiseled crucifix in silver for my 4 year old son, he is so proud that he has jesus around his neck and it is a fine piece in my opinion. i think it is absolutely gorgeous, and it is not to big for a child. PERFECT!!
Initially, I purchased the Small Chiseled Crucifix as a gift for a young man. I found it to be too small. I returned it and exchanged it for the regular Chiseled Crucifix. While the detail and quality of both items is stellar, the size and price difference can be misleading. The Chiseled Crucifix is much bigger than the small Chiseled Crucifix. It makes sense paying more than double when you see the difference, but I'm not sure if the measurements under the Product Specifications are accurate in this case.
This is a piece of art in the fullest way!!!
the detail of craftsmanship is superb and the quality is some of the finest I've personally ever seen. I got this as a gift to myself and to show my Christian faith. if you want quality look no further.
I bought this for my bracelet and it's so beautiful and symbolic ! It's overall breathtaking and amazing
I've had this cross for over a year now and I very seldomly take it off. The craftsmanship is is elegant and detailed with our lord and savior imprinted on the front. Many people have witnessed this cross from around the world as I've traveled. I'm proud to represent this cross as a soldier in the army of the Lord. This is truly a beacon of light from heaven, keep your faith. God bless!
An amazing little masterpiece
Raised a Protestant, I did not even wear a cross. Once, when I had lunch with a pastor's wife, she stopped, and stated, "I believe that the Lord wants you to wear a cross, Arlene, and I don't even know why I am saying this. Buy I feel strongly impressed that I am to tell you this. So I began a several year search for a cross I felt was the right one. You may guess that when I was at the mayo Clinic in Rochester, a small shop sold James Avery's silver, and when I saw the chiseled crucifix, I knew it was the one. (I also bought one which I gave to my Senior Internship director there.) Needless to say, the work of this cross since 2007 has been one of those quiet yet powerful influences into many lives. People in many places have seen it and been stopped in their tracks, some even breaking into tears - many opening their stories to me. I know there is nothing special about my person, but the image on this cross is presented in a very subtle yet deeply influential way. You will love wearing this, regardless of your denominational background.
Even better in person
I have admired this cross in the catalog for a long time and recently purchased it for my husband. It is even more beautiful in person! I also ordered a chain to go with it. Both are of the highest quality. These are masculine and perfect for my husband who is a big guy.
In the grand tradition of what I have come to know as James Avery craftsmanship, this and the chosen chain are the solitary pieces to date which I have purchased and worn; I can count on one hand the number of times it has come from around my neck. God knows further James Avery pieces will adorn my body proudly in tribute to my heavenly Father and to James Avery for creating such honorable and heavenly inspired jewelry. Lastly, let me offer my praises to the James Avery staff . . . they uphold the James Avery tradition, and I would be proud to work in such an environment. Thank you!
I ordered this for my 17-year-old son for his birthday. It is a very masculine piece. The "chiseling" makes it very unique. My son absolutely loved it.
