I was sent this cross pendant necklace by U7 for free for a review.
This cross pendant makes a lovely gift whether you are religious or not. It comes in a gold box with a window in it and the cross itself is in it’s own re-sealable bag, sitting on some felted card. The box also contains a thank you leaflet. There is no silk pouch however as stated in the description.
This pendant makes the perfect Christian gift, but indeed anybody who just wants to wear a cross these days (and I know many non-religious people do) will like this. Although at the top it is marketed for men, it is indeed a unisex item and both men and women will enjoy wearing this.
The pendant itself is a bit weighty and is thicker than it looks from the front with the edges of the cross curving downwards towards your body. The central cross is stainless steel with the outer gold being that metallic gold colour rather than more yellow. This more metallic gold colour really fits with this cross and the stainless steel.
The pendant has a long enough chain that it sits quite low down on my chest, enough so that I can have it around my neck and still be able to pick it up and look at it. But it’s not too low down to cause a nuisance. In fact the added weight makes it stay in place and the flat shape at the back of the pendant means it sits well on my body and doesn’t twist around like some lighter pendants can do.
The chain is and looks like stainless steel and looks like a typical ‘chain’, being slightly rounded in its feel. But it sits very well and the whole chain doesn’t cause any irritation against my skin. The clasp is also easy to open and close.
Overall, whether you are looking for a lovely cross to wear for religious purposes, or just enjoy the cross design in jewellery, this is a lovely pendant to wear. It isn’t tiny and so makes a statement but without being so big that it would be garish. Overall a great gift for family, friends and even for yourself!
