The cross, in particular the silver male cross, had several meanings for the Russian people. First of all, it connects with Jesus Christ and the torments suffered by the Savior for the benefit of humanity. That is the victory of life over death and a symbol of the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ for humanity, a symbol of salvation, eternal life, protection from dark forces, a kind of weapon of our faith.
In addition, the cross in Russia associates with a feat. Especially the military. That’s why a massive male cross will be a gift for people who have passed Chechnya or Afghanistan.
The battle in Russia relates to a Christian feat and love for the motherland. After all, defending Holy Russia from enemies, a warrior himself became a saint. No wonder so many who remained on the battlefield became canonized.
A Christian feat is saving lives by a doctor or a firefighter. People risking their lives repeat the feat of Jesus Christ on a small scale.
The cross is also a symbol of life, victory over death. So it will be a good gift for a representative of a dangerous profession, for example, a lifeguard. People who love gold will suit models with gold plating.
In the nineteenth century, various people wore crosses on a string or a strong braid. Nowadays, believers prefer chains. The chain is bought separately or together with the cross. The high-grade alloy is famous for its strength. You cannot be afraid that the chain will break, and the cross will be lost.
But whatever type of product you choose, you should remember that the cross is a holy symbol, not a decoration. He protects us from diseases, strengthens us in faith, heals the soul.
