Many Catholic girls receive their first
religious jewelry on the occasion of their First
Holy Communion. The dainty treasures are worn proudly
all that day and then lovingly kept for them by their
mothers until the next special occasion. The memories
attached to them last a lifetime: the awe of finally
participating in the Sacrament, the worry of not eating
for an hour before Mass,
the excitement of wearing a veil just like a brides,
the rough feel of the tulle beneath that gleaming white
dress, and the joy of being the center of everyones
attention for a whole day.
and Confirmation are also occasions for receiving
religious jewelry. Baby are often given tiny bracelets
or infinitesimal rosaries, which they finger in awe
when they are older, asking numerous questions. At the
time of Confirmation, where the candidates get to select
their own names, teens spend many hours asking about
relatives, and poring over saint books in anticipation
of the ceremony that recognizes them as adult Catholics.
It is traditional, at Confirmation,
for them to receive medals of the saints they choose
to be their patrons. Other gifts such as gold or silver
crosses, miraculous medals, and Holy
Spirit pendants are also common. Religious jewelry
captures those defining moments of growing up Catholic,
holding them in readiness to be remembered again and
Religious jewelry is the perfect gift for those whose
lives are guided by their faith. The articles are so
much more than ornaments to them. The ring becomes a
talisman, the charm a touchstone and the pin a remembrance
of all that their religion means to them.
Sometimes we forget that men as well as women can be
extremely devout and will appreciate the gift of religious
jewelry. Finding a store that carries religious jewelry
for a man, though, can be difficult. Here at this site
we carry a substantial number of pins, rings, medals
and crosses that are masculine in taste as well as large
The most common sign used in Catholic religious jewelry
is the cross
All Greek Orthodox Catholics, for example recognize
each other by the crosses they wear, as are Roman Catholics
identified by their crucifixes. Here, at this store,
we have many crosses and crucifixes in various styles,
available in gold, white gold and sterling silver, including
some exclusive pieces like our diamond
cross. Sometimes religious symbols are combined
with secular symbols, such as the cross against a heart,
to make a distinct religious statement. Together they
can mean both the love and sacrifice of Jesus or the
love bestowed by the giver in union with that of Jesus.
religious jewelry has its own unique symbolism including
friendship coin and the Star
of David. The Chai for example is the written Hebrew
word for living. Those who are familiar with Judaism,
know that it is deeply focused on life and so the Chai
is almost a synonym for the spirit of the religion.
The Chai, along with other Jewish jewelry, is available
in gold and silver along with a fine collection of chains
to choose from to complete your purchase. We have, in
addition a lovely pendant that combines the Star
of David with the Christian cross, a celebration
of two religions in one piece of jewelry.
Religious jewelry, as well as being a decoration, is
a statement of faith. Even those who are unfamiliar
with a religion will recognize its symbols and know
that the wearer of the jewelry subscribes to a particular
faith. Religious jewelry is a silent message and an
old friend, a way to declare your personhood and to
remind yourself of
your origins. Given as a gift, it will be fondly treasured
and the giver remembered as someone who knew you on
the inside to the quiet depths of your soul.
