Heraldic Cross Charm Jewelry
Over the past half century, the jewelry industry has evolved considerably. Nowadays, there is a specific type of jewelry for all kinds of people, while traditionally jewelry itself was seen as an exclusive luxury that only people of certain factions were allowed to wear. Further, various other connotations were attached to jewelry wearers, and the industry was one which depended upon the demand for women.
This led to advertisements and other marketing approaches focusing exclusively on women who wanted to look better. Further, men were not supposed to wear jewelry, apart from marriage rings and weddings bands. However, this was not always the case.
The significance of the Heraldic cross
In prehistoric times, various armies and military factions had specific jewelry that they wore as a symbol of their loyalty. There are little square banners that can be found on metal armours of the time, along with dog tags or name-tags that had specific designs. Now, many of the kings of these times were highly religious.
This led to most of these symbols being those related to God, or clergymen. Not only were these kings and armies loyal to these symbols, they were considered to protect human beings from all forms of evils, and this led to the use of the Christian cross, as early as the 12th century. This was the age of crusades that were often supported by religious churches.
At first, the armies of these churches and religious kings used straightforward Christian crosses. However, as the number of armies increased, so did the need to create symbols that were unique and recognizable. Hence, minor customizations such as different shapes and colors began to be used in these symbols.
This is what led to the development of heraldic crosses. Heraldic crosses can have quite a bit of customization in shape and color. Further, these symbols can be multicolored, and the only recognizable feature is the shape of the orthodox Christian cross in the center.
The Heraldic Cross in Modern times
In the last century or so, the jewelry industry has now begun to focus on unorthodox categories and symbols that can be used to create unique jewelry pieces. Further, as wearing jewelry is more socially acceptable for men than it has ever been, people are more perverse to trying out different kinds of designs.
Religious jewelry as a separate category has also become more popular. Actual creation of the pieces has also become a less time-consuming job, and more time can hence be devoted to coming up with unique designs. The Heraldic Cross for example, is used in both men’s and women’s jewelry. On one hand, there is the majestic Diamond cross necklace for women, while on the other the 10k gold cross pendant can be worn by both men and women. In this article, we will now see some of the best Heraldic Cross Charm jewelry pieces that you can buy currently:
