Closer to the body

You can see the pectoral cross on the neck of almost every person. And it doesn’t matter if he is a true believer or was baptized when he was a baby, but now he wears a cross rather as a decoration or amulet. Such a tradition among our people is to wear the Orthodox cross for baptism. The church believes that the cross is a symbol of faith, one of the most important shrines.

Features of the choice of jewelry

Jewelry is most often made of gold, silver, platinum. As well as metals belonging to the platinum group (palladium, rhodium, iridium).
