You might think that religious jewelry looks all the same or that design choices are not good. But if you do, you’d be wrong. Your faith is a serious matter, but how you express that faith doesn’t have to be stuffy and boring. It is possible to express your faith and at the same time show that you possess a personal sense of style. Faith and fashion can go together and finding ways for them to do so gives you a chance to show the world part of what makes you uniquely YOU.
Take the cross pendant as an example. Most girls grew up wearing a single cross pendant on a single gold or silver chain – and that is still an attractive style. But it is far from the only way to wear the ubiquitous symbol of Christianity. Here are a few ways to mix things up a little.
1. The possibilities are charming
Bracelets are enjoying a current wave of popularity right now. Big and chunky is in. That means that you can hang your cross from any of your existing bracelets to give them a whole new look. Or, you could add your pendant to a charm bracelet. If you don’t already own a charm bracelet, now might be a good time to pick one up – especially since you won’t need to pay for a charm since ou have one hanging on your cross necklace!
2. No one can wear just one
The days of wearing just one chain around your neck are long gone. Today, women are wearing multiple chains of varying length all at once, with all kinds of pendants. In fact, half the fun is changing the pendants according to your mood or fashion of the day. Religious jewelry isn’t stuffy – it’s as unique as your own sense of style.
3. Drop it a line
Give your cross pendant a new place to live. Silver and gold chains are great –especially as mentioned above, in layers – but they aren’t the only place to dangle your cross. Colored leather cords are also fun. Wearing it short and tight as a choker is a little funky and ensures that no one will miss seeing it. Wearing it longer and swaying says you are relaxed but definitely grounded. How you wear your cross can be different every day.
4. The more the merrier
It isn’t only fun to wear several chains – it’s also fun to wear several cross pendants at once, on a single chain or several. Wearing multiple crosses is interesting. People will want to take a closer look. If you like, you could hang a couple of crosses along with a saint’s medal or a religious pin. Mixing heart pendants and crosses is another terrific way to express your faith through religious jewelry.
