Catholics are part of the most numerous and most wide-spread Christian denomination in the world. You can hear the otherworldly music of their choirs echoing through towering European churches as well as through ramshackle buildings in Africa and South America. Theirs is a faith with deep-seated traditions and a tumultuous past. Most importantly though, it has inspired hope in the hereafter through the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ in untold millions of people throughout almost two millennia.
If you aren’t a Catholic yourself, chances are you know a few, and if you’ve ever been invited into one’s home one of the first things you’ve probably noticed are a great many icons, religious medallions, and statues decorating it. These colorful displays have as much to do with the faith itself as with the long-standing tradition of its presence and add personality to its expression. It is also popular among Catholics to proudly wear Catholic jewelry for everyone to see. An appropriate necklace would therefore be a wonderful small jewelry idea to awe one with, and for that, you’ve come to exactly the right place!
We’ve taken special care to showcase the biblical words and imagery with a great deal of respect while also making sure that each spiritual necklace has a distinct look. Although they’re personal tokens of faith above all else, the necklaces were designed to also bring out one’s unique style. The feature which plays a major part in this is the pure golden imprint at the heart of each piece of jewelry. The proprietary process by which we create them makes the imprints as spotless and eternal as the religious truths they convey, and free from imitation on top of this. To continue reading to uncover a few of our most prized ones:
From the Old Testament, there’s the Lord is my shepherd prayer gracing a complexly-faceted cubic zirconia stone clad in white gold. The entire psalm of David’s unwavering faith in the Lord’s protection and guidance along with a touching image of the crucified Jesus instills in it a sense of hope and make it a wonderful source of divinely-inspired courage. Either gold or silver would look amazing on her, but neither is nearly as important as the personal meaning this Christian jewelry for women will hold for her.
Another prayer showing absolutely faith in the Lord no matter how dire the outlook, psalm 91, is at home on the gemstone of this Christian pendant. Aesthetically speaking, the piece is more or less exactly the same as the one before it, but it is an even better example of the detail our inscriptions exhibit since the much longer psalm envelops Jesus in its entirety. How many other necklaces have you seen that carry more than a word or three which aren’t nearly as finely-crafted?
The gospels are the account of Jesus’ life and triumph over death, and nowhere is the latter recounted with more detail than in the gospel of Matthew. If putting the 91st psalm onto one dainty necklace was quite a feat, then a Christian necklace for men speaking of Jesus’ trial, passion, and resurrection is truly wondrous. Matthew’s entire account of Christianity’s defining moments is presented in stunning detail on an onyx gemstone set inside a golden “picture frame”. Other frame options this marvelous Christian jewelry for men comes in are a set of prongs which leave the gem’s sides almost completely exposed, and a simpler frame decorated with six small screws that give the men's necklace a cool finish.
If you feel that all of those excerpts are a bit too long to be put on a piece of jewelry, no matter how masterfully, how about a scripture necklace that captures the essence of Christianity in one poignant sentence? John 3:16 exposes the core of Christian belief – love, sacrifice, and redemption, in just twenty-five words, carefully imprinted onto this beautiful necklace. Its exotic eye frame and the luminous Swarovski gem inside of it will draw any onlooker closer; the imprint’s unmistakable meaning will cause them to stop and think on it even longer.
No assortment of carefully selected Catholic jewelry would be complete without a selection of Christian gift items that feature the Lord’s Prayer. Perhaps the most important and personal way of expressing one’s faith, it resounds in the hearts of Catholics the world over. We’ve prepared a multitude of necklaces for men and women which bear its precious words in fitting golden letters. From ones with gilded frames made magnificent with strings of small diamonds any woman of faith will adore to gifts for Catholics of either gender framed with silver, your choices abound!

To make them even more accessible and personal, some Lord’s Prayer necklaces and those with Matthew 27 or John 3:16 are available in Spanish too.
