Accessories elevate any outfit from simply clothes worn, to illuminating your own sense of style. One of the most versatile accessories is the cross necklace. The cross necklace has been staple in fashion history since Cleopatra adorned a solid gold cross in ancient Egyptian times. Whether your a conservative business women, goth chic or fashionista, a cross necklace can be found to fit your style.
A small simple silver cross can be worn by anyone at any stage of their life. It goes with anything. I can be worn alone as an understated symbol of simplistic style or along with other accessories. The silver cross is a popular gift for a young women as their first piece of nice jewelry. That’s because it such a statement piece and whether it’s a religious symbol of your faith or a fashion piece, you will always remember your first cross necklace.
If you’re more into statement pieces or have an inner goth chic looking for a way to express herself, a more ornate cross with detail maybe the right style for you. Thank of Madonna in the 80’s. Madonna made wearing religious symbols such as rosaries and crosses as fashion pieces controversial, but today, it’s a more acceptable fashion accessory. You can wear a single three inch metal cross with filigree and gems stones and it’s all you need to stand out. Whether the cross necklace is the stand alone piece with a simple black dress or part of a colorful outfit, the cross is going to stand out.
Cross necklaces can also be found in fine jewelry such as those made of diamonds and emeralds. In the 90’s you could find every rap star on the planet wearing a platinum set diamond encrusted cross. It was a status symbol, the more fame the bigger the cross. There is nothing more elegant then a diamond cross necklace. The advantage of this cross necklace is it will be a piece that will never go out of style.
You may have owned several crosses in your lifetime and it shows what an amazing accessory anyone at any age can enjoy.
No matter what statement you intend to make by wearing a cross necklace, whether its a simple silver engraved cross necklace or an intricate design like the Reversible shiny or Antiqued Silver Filigree Cross Necklace, find the style that best suits you no matter your age or style.
