This Gold Sideways Cubic Zirconia (CZ) Cross Stainless Steel Necklace measures about 18″ in length and features an approx. 1″ horizontal gold colored cross filled with a row of cubic zirconia’s across and a row of cubic zirconia’s down the center. Many people consider the horizontal cross to be just another version of the upright cross—a symbol of Jesus Christ and Christianity. Others attach a more detailed meaning: the sideways cross becomes a symbol of Jesus’ finished work—having procured our salvation, He has laid His cross down—or it is a symbol of how we are to take up our cross and follow Jesus (Luke 9:23)—a cross carried over one’s shoulder would normally be in a horizontal position.
