In the time of the 20th century, Judeo-Christian culture was one of the biggest political inventions. Though it was considered as one of the unstable foundations, it was a historical turning point in America's political history. For Jews, Catholics, and Black Americans this foundation was a path to the infusion into postwar American democracy. National Unity and racial healing were the main aspects of this prestigious “Judeo-Christian” culture.
When we discuss any particular culture, things that we observe are clothes, jewelry, food habits, way of living, etc. So here also the designing of jewelry had always played an important role in depicting the culture. Both the religious beliefs are completely different. Compiling both the cultures together and showing it in just a piece of jewelry is not everyone’s cup of tea. But nothing seems impossible with Jewelry America.
In Judeo-Christian Jewelry the two symbols that are generally used are “Star of David” and “The Holy Cross.”
The Star of David represents both Judaism and Israel. The Star of David consists of two overlaid triangles, which form a hexagram shaped six-pointed star. This Star is seen on the flag of Israel and Jewish tombstones. In the Hebrew culture, it is known as Magen David or the Shield of King David. According to historians during the 17th century, the Jewish quarter in Vienna was marked with a hexagram to differentiate it from the rest of the city, and at that time this symbol was widely used in the Middle East, Europe, and North America.
Another important and valuable symbol, used in Judeo-Christian Jewelry is the Holy cross. In the 2nd century, using the cross in jewelry was considered as an inappropriate gesture because it was related to the cruel crucifixion of Lord Jesus. But in the 3rd century and 4th century, people expressed this as a sacred symbol of both passion and protection. To this day, people do believe in wearing these cross pendants, because this sign brings positivity and hope for a fresh start.

The design features the holy cross surrounded by the Jewish Star of David. This pendant has a stunning, shiny finish and is generally used as a sign of protection and dedication to God.

The design of this pendant resembles the previous one. But the contrast of color and texture distinguish this particular pendant.
