The gifts we give and receive should be about more than giving something shiny or even something useful. There should be special meaning behind the gift, a sign that the giver has put thought and care into its selection. If you’re stumped on what gift to give to someone you love, you might want to shop for a Christian cross ring for them. These pieces of jewelry are the perfect reminder of the true meaning of love. Keep reading to find out why.
What Is Love?
People have been asking themselves what love really is since the beginning of time. There are so many different types of love, but nobody embodied the true meaning of love like Jesus Christ. In 1 Corinthians 13:7, love is perfectly defined for you: “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” This message sums up what love truly is, whether platonic or romantic—a willingness to stand at someone’s side through the hardest of times while holding onto hope and helping to lift your loved ones up.
A Symbol of Love
Whether you’re trying to send a message of platonic love or romantic love, the symbol of the cross is a perfect symbol for unwavering love. Just as Christ truly endured and bore all things for you, just as he helps you to hold onto your hope and beliefs, the symbol of the cross can remind the wearer that they are truly and deeply loved—not only by your Savior but by the person who gave them the ring they wear.
An Alternative to Necklaces
While it is more traditional for people to wear the symbol of the cross on a necklace, necklaces are not for everyone. Some people simply don’t like wearing chains or necklaces, while others can’t because of their occupation or other daily activities that might snag or catch on a necklace. Even mothers of young children may frequently find it difficult to wear a necklace, as children will grab and pull on dangling jewelry. A cross ring is a perfect alternative to these, allowing faithful Christians to wear the symbol of Christ’s love on their hand instead.
Choosing the Right Ring
If you’re selecting a ring for someone other than yourself, it’s important to make sure you not only know the person’s ring size but their style and preferences as well. We carry many different styles of cross rings for both men and women, from the stunningly simple to the breathtakingly elegant. You should also consider the person’s occupation and hobbies, as rings that have a taller profile may get caught or damaged on machinery and other items. If they work a lot with their hands, consider a simple band engraved with a cross.
Of course, you may also be looking to buy this daily reminder of Christ’s love for yourself. If that’s the case, make sure to take the same items listed above into consideration. Many people don’t think about things like how durable the metal is when buying a ring and end up purchasing a soft metal even when they work with their hands a lot. If you hope to wear this ring every day, you’ll need to consider everything you do on a daily basis and how well that ring style and material will stand up to those activities.
