Description

American Trinity Cross pendant
Solid Sterling Silver with ruby, diamond, and sapphire
1 5/8"

$1000

Ships worldwide from Los Angeles, CAlifornia for $5.

The American Trinity Cross is named for its red, white, and blue stones. The ruby, diamond, and sapphire that enhance it have a dual symbolism that represents both Christian theology and American patriotism.

I first created the design as a much larger ceramic sculpture. I then translated the form into a sterling silver jewelry design. Using the traditional lost wax method, my silversmith partner hand casts hand casts an identical, miniature "sculpture to wear" in sterling silver, with a simple channel opening added for the chain. The pendant is hand polished and the jewels complementing the "American Trinity Cross" design are hand set.

The symbolism of the jewels:

The Ruby represents the love, the blood, and the passion of Christ. It also symbolizes E Pluribus Unum – “From Many, One.” Out of many peoples, races, religions, and ancestries has emerged a single nation: the United States of America.

The Diamond represents the purity of Mary. It also invokes the official motto of the United States of America, "In God We Trust."

The Sapphire represents the grace of Heaven. It also symbolizes liberty, one of the founding principles of the United States of America and expressed in the Declaration of Independence.

In 2012, the Trinity Cross won First Place in the category of Inspirational Jewelry Design at the JCK Jewelers' Choice Awards international design competition.

Pope Francis has acknowledged the unique commemorative Trinity Cross that designer Charles Sherman created for him. A copy of the Vatican letter comes with every order.
