During the rise of Christianity, its followers were persecuted for wearing crosses and other now-ubiquitous religious icons. To avoid this, they often wore more subtle, subversive symbols like the equal-armed cross—also referred to as the peaceful cross—which actually predates Christianity.
It’s a symbol most commonly used by the Greek Orthodox church as a more balanced representation when compared to the traditional Latin cross.
These 18kt gold vermeil cross earrings are adorned with freshwater seed pearls, which are symbols of the inspiring wisdom that comes with prayer.
