Faith and Fashion: Cross Necklaces that Transcend

The cross necklace has always been a classic jewelry piece that adds grace to any outfit. Lately, we've seen a resurgence of our favorite trendsetters adorning themselves with these necklaces. Simple and beautiful, these pieces can range in size and length depending on the statement you want to make.

For a casual piece, choose a cross that is small in size and either sterling silver or gold tone. This necklace can easily be paired with anything in your closet and worn on an everyday basis. Kate Moss was recently spotted wearing a cross necklace and gold hoops with a casual look consisting of jeans, a plaid shirt and a cardigan. Heidi Montag of The Hills shows her faith by donning a cross necklace with a tank top and jeans for daily wear.

For a modern take on the cross necklace, choose chains or cords that are longer in length and have a larger costume-y pendant. Vanessa Hudgens recently played up her bohemian style with laid back layers and a long cross pendant. Even country music star Toby Keith wears an oversize cross pendant on-stage when he performs. It's obvious these stars have very different styles, but they share a common preference for this classic piece.

If you're looking to dress up for evening, throw on a cross pendant adorned in rhinestones for an eye-catching statement. Jennifer Aniston famously made this look a hit when she paired a huge cross adorned with stones with a simple black satin dress. The rest of her look, including hair and makeup, was simple, leaving the gorgeous cross to get all the attention.

Cross pendants also make a great gift for friends or loved ones. With an engraving on the back, a cross necklace is the perfect Mother's Day or birthday present. The recipient is sure to appreciate a classic piece that can be worn for years to come.
