Crosses


Jewelry with personal and spiritual significance is more important than ever this year. The most popular style in this category is, of course, the cross pendant. This is one example of having your cake and eating it, too: Crosses are a bread-and-butter basic and, at the same time, a fashionable self-purchase, too. The same cross can serve both purposes. You might even consider displaying crosses with your charm pendants as well as with your solitaires. Since this makes crosses a value item, you’ll find a greater selection than ever this year. Designers and manufacturers have created their own signature cross styles that add unique expression to this classic form. We’ve gathered many of the best new cross styles, with retails from $195 to $90,000. You’re sure to find at least one new must-have for your customers, be they traditional or trendy.
