They can also be welcomed gifts by those experiencing serious illness or other hardships.There is no shortage to the variety of cross pendants that are available. Diamond cross pendants are especially popular and many of today's top jewelry designers have created their own unique diamond cross pendants. Some pendants feature a single diamond in the middle of the cross, while others are set with diamonds on the entire surface of the cross. Other designs include a mixture of diamonds and other gemstones set in a variety of metals including gold, platinum, and silver.Women who are shopping for a cross pendant to wear every day may be more comfortable with a simple gold or silver cross pendant. Men typically prefer basic silver or gold pendants as well, rather than those adorned with gemstones. When purchasing a cross pendant, it is important to note whether or not it comes with a coordinating gold or silver chain. In some cases, you will need to purchase a chain separately. A popular variation of the standard cross is the Celtic cross pendant. While the true origin and meaning of the ringed cross symbol is debatable, it is often worn as much as a symbol of ethnic heritage as it is of faith and is often used to signify a person's Irish, Scottish or Welsh identity. Celtic cross pendants can be crafted from any variety of metals, including pewter, brass, gold, sterling silver, and stainless steel.
