As a representative symbol of Christianity, the cross has a very special and rich symbolic meaning. In the hearts of Christians, it represents God’s love and salvation for the world. With time passing, even non-Christians were deeply influenced by the culture of the cross and began to wear cross jewelry. Thus, there is a large number of jewelry designed specifically for the cross, and you can find various styles in GTHIC. But, did you notice the difference between men’s and women’s cross rings?
Difference in ring size
Crosses for men and women are also a little different. For women, rings are not strange to them. Women’s hands are smaller than men’s hands, so the cross rings are relatively small and delicate. The most basic crosses are the Latin cross and the Greek cross, and other crosses derived from them.
Women have slender and elegant fingers and the average ring size ranges from size 5 to 7. The women’s cross rings are more suitable to wear, both in style and size. The lines and the body of women’s cross rings are smooth and simple, to show off their femininity. The designer purposely reduced the size and cut out the complex pattern decoration to present a clean visual effect with only the simplest design. In addition, the use of stainless steel does not fade and does not deform, always remaining bright, signifying eternal piety.
Compared to women’s cross rings, Christian cross rings for men are larger and heavier because men have more extensive and thicker hands. The average ring size for men is 8-10 yards, some even larger, with styles leaning towards vintage and solid.
Difference in design
There are many more soft designs on women’s rings. Some may be surrounded by a three-sided stainless steel rectangular frame, angular and stylish. Usually, the front of the ring is inlaid with a full and noble ruby. The color is bright and atmospheric, the visual impact is strong and the look is beautiful and moving. Besides, some rings’ left and right sides of are engraved with silver and white crosses, which are mysterious and inviolable. The design of the whole ring is simple and elegant.
The cross rings for men are more bold and authoritative. There are some crown ring in GTHIC that has many small Latin crosses attached to them, and with rubies, reflect the exquisite luxury of the ring. Some are in yellow, which symbolizes Jesus Christ as the King of glory, the Lord of heaven and earth, in whom is the way of eternal life. It indicates that the saints manifest the glory of Christ to shine for the Lord, and the high yellow cross allows those at a distance to see the glory of Christ, come to church, and receive Christ’s salvation.
Some other men’s cross ring is unique in that their design came from a watercolor painting, “The Praying Hands”, which German artist Dürer completed in 1508. The joined hands represent devotion and prayer, as well as gratitude for the great love and sacrifice of family members and faith in religion, which coincides with the ring’s symbolic meaning of the cross. Christian believers who wear a cross have respect and reverence for God in their hearts, and this ring has the cross engraved in the center of the ring and the ring body accompanied by praying hands, amplifying the faith in religion to the extreme while being both beautiful and vintage.
Also, some skull cross rings are suitable for men. They are unique in shape, with a skull shape as the overall tone and a golden cross embedded in the center of the forehead, the fusion of the two elements represents death and rebirth. The skull represents fear, but at the same time, it is also a way for young trendsetters to express their freedom and respect. The overall tone of the ring is silver, with gold to highlight the accents, and with various patterns on the body, revealing a religious vintage style, adding some noble and mysterious colors to the ring.
It is easy to see that many of the rings with cross elements can be worn by both men and women, whether they are Christian believers or not, and that cross accessories can be used as everyday accessories. The cross is simple and generous in design, and in different combinations, it also shows different meanings and charms, which can meet the needs of many people’s accessories.
