The elegant, geometric design of this sterling silver cross is inspired by the Holy Trinity and expresses it from every angle. The spiritual message embodied in the Trinity Cross is belief in the love and compassion of Christ’s atonement and His promise of Eternal Life.
We are pleased to announce that the Trinity Cross won the 2012 Jewelers' Choice International Design Award for Inspirational Jewelry.
The unique Trinity Cross is composed of eight triangles. The front view is a triangle that is wide at the bottom and thin at the top. The side view is a triangle that is thin at the bottom and wide at the top. The design can be seen as the pointing to and the meeting of two directions: God's divine love for humanity and humanity's love for God.
About the designer of the Trinity Cross

and art is the same: to promote the positive. This is reflected in his
art writings, sculpture, and symbolic jewelry.
Notes on the Cross from Antiquity to the Present Day
The cross is a profound religious icon with ancient, Pre-Christian
beginnings. Egyptian priests carried the Ankh "Tree of Life," or crux ansata,
a cross adopted by the Early Christian Coptic Church. True crosses
have been found in Bronze Age cultures, such as the Mycenaean
civilization of ancient Greece and the Minoans of Crete. Over the
centuries the cross has taken various forms, and expressed a wide
variety of spiritual and rich cultural traditions, from the Catholic
Crucifix with its image of Christ; the Celtic Cross which combines a
circle with the Latin Cross; the Greek Cross, the Gothic Cross; the Hand
Cross, with its representation of the Ark of the Covenant at its base,
and the Maltese Cross, along with many, many others.
