Sideways Cross Choker Necklace
A classic piece, like the cross pendant necklace, is something that anyone would love to have. The sideways cross is simply a modern take on the traditional symbol, a reimaged version of it. Many jewelry designers feel that it's important to give old things a fresh update in order to keep them in style. Many could speculate that sideways cross jewelry was inspired by other uses of the symbol throughout the world. The national flags for Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland all feature a horizontal cross, or "Scandinavian Christian cross," as a patriotic symbol of pride and honour. Also, the side cross can be found on some tombstones, signifying the resurrection of the soul. As far as the meaning goes, it can be whatever you want it to be. Or it can just be a fun fashion statement and mean nothing at all. Some believe that it represents Christ carrying the cross and laying it down after he had risen. Others consider it to be an expression of self-awareness and understanding your place in the world.
Side cross necklaces are incredibly wearable and work with any type of style, from classic to gothic. And though they are more commonly worn with casual outfits, horizontal cross necklaces can be dressed up with diamonds for your formal attire. Side crosses can be worn at the centre of your neck or chest, or swung to the side to create an asymmetrical look. And don't worry about it sliding around throughout the day – it'll look great no matter where it falls on the neckline!
