Product DescriptionFirst introduced back in the 15th century, the Maltese cross came to symbolize the 8 obligations and ideals of the knights. This Maltese cross pendant is an attractive interpretation of this historic symbol. The 8 ideals represented by the 8 points are: live in truth, to be critical, hate the sin but not the sinner, serve one's brothers and sisters, to love justice, to be merciful, be sincere and wholesome, and to endure persecution. This Maltese cross is crafted from gold covered sterling silver. The Maltese cross pendant is 15/16" long and hangs on the 18" gold plated chain. This is the preferred length of most girls, teens and adult women. Beautifully packaged in a deluxe jewelry box makes it easy to give as a gift for First Communion, Confirmation or any special occasion. When she wears it, she will always think of and remember your support and prayers for her faith journey. The simple, yet delicate design of the Maltese cross pendant makes it versatile for wearing to a variety of special events as well as being appropriate for every day wear.
