The Saint Andrew Cross is a three-bar Russian Orthodox Cross. Tradition teaches that when the Apostle Andrew preached in southern Russia he placed a life-size three-bar cross at his side. While explaining the Last Judgment, he tilted the foot plate to signify that those on the right side of Christ will go up into heaven and those on the left will go down into hell.

Sterling Silver Russian Orthodox Cross
Our Sterling Silver medals are at least 92.5 percent pure silver. Copper is typically combined to improve the metal’s hardness and durability without compromising the quality and look of the silver.
Sterling Silver medals are marked with a quality stamp to ensure the content of the silver. Federal law mandates that the quality stamp must include the maker’s mark. You will find either “Sterling Bliss” or “Sterling BLI” on the back of our medals – both acceptable quality marks.
14 Karat Gold Filled Russian Orthodox Cross
14kt Gold filled, also known as rolled gold is made up of a solid layer of 14 Karat Gold bonded with a base metal, such as brass, on both the front and back of the medal. Total content of Gold is 1/20 of the weight of the medal.
14 Karat Gold Russian Orthodox Cross
Our 14 Karat Gold is composed of 58.3 percent pure gold and is ideal for fine jewelry. Other alloys, such as copper, are mixed in with the gold to give more of a red warm hue. This also gives the metal strength. Since gold is a natural element, it is very durable. We do recommend removing the jewelry if it may come in contact with chemicals. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water and detergent-free soap and a soft brush.
18 Karat Gold
This item is also available in 18K Gold.
