The Jerusalem cross

The Jerusalem cross

Five crosses are stacked in a single Jerusalem cross (or Crusaders’ cross). Great Cross is a symbol of Christ and the four small ones – 4-Apostles, the authors of the four Gospels.

Silver cufflinks “Milestones of Faith” are decorated with “stone violets”, amethysts, which mean modesty and humbleness in the Christian tradition. Amethysts are called “papal” stones. They have always been particularly valued by church hierarchs.
