Symbolism and application of the item

It is a small cross with a Crucifix on ...the front side and the Guardian Angel on its backside. This cross goes well together with a gemmed St. Andrew's cross that was traditionally worshipped in Russia and often used in Russian symbolism since the beginning of the 18th century. According to the legend, Apostle Andrew had founded Christianity in Byzantium. After preaching Christ, Apostle Andrew was martyrized on an x-shaped cross.

Together with the cross of Christ, St. Andrew's cross forms the monogram of Christ (Christogram). St. Andrew's cross and Christogram are among the most widespread symbols in many countries. Many Christian nations have put those signs on national flags, decorations, and royal insignia.

On the backside of the cross, the image of the Guardian Angel is shown. This is a symbolic image of an Angel who, armed with a cross and a spiritual sword, leaves his Heavenly Fatherland to fight against evil for human souls here on Earth. There is an infinite number of angels, and all of them form a harmonious Heavenly hierarchy. Guardian angels are of the lowest rank, they are closer to people, and protect each of us.

During the baptism, God gives every Christian a Guardian Angel, who invisibly guards a person throughout their life. He protects them in difficult situations, protects them from temptations and demonic attacks, gives advice in difficult times, and prays to God for mercy. The Guardian Angel never leaves a human in their hour of death and leads their soul to Eternity.

Guardian Angels, as well as humans, are creatures of individuality, but we do not know their names.  We do not even know the name of our own Guardian Angel.

Why should you buy this item?
  • The cross depicts the Guardian Angel so it provides protection against evil;
  • This cross goes well together with St. Andrew’s cross and forms the monogram of Christ;
  • It is a beautiful and elegant piece of handmade jewelry.
