I dont know if this sounds silly but, I wana see a pic of the cross you are wearing.

i have been looking around for a new cross to wear for a long time and cant decide on one.
Im getting some $$ comming in soon (probably) and i think im finally gona splurge on a new cross.
Im currently wearing my aunts (memory eternal) cross....but um hemm its more for a woman (thats why i want a new one) but thats all i have right now, and i always wear a cross. I have lost sooo many crosses in my life, its not funny.

Anyway show us a pic of your cross if you can. to help me decide what to get.

I will post a pic of mine but my cell dont have a cam so tomorow il take apic with my camera.

kinda silly thread no???

I don't like jewelry generally, but I will say that one thing that bothers me about cross necklaces is that they generally don't seem to weigh enough, so rather than sitting where they should they end up out of place up by my shoulder or something. I'd definitely get a heavier one if I bought another one.

same here. i cant stand jewelry, it just bothers me, feeling someting on me, even rings.

i only wear a cross. and like i said this is really a woman's cross so its pretty small and all overthe place as u say.

i want someting med size and silver.

i think i like orthonorms. his looks a bit bigger then what i want i think.

Hey, orthonorm-----try it again please.

U guys think its wrong to be so picky for a cross?

i feel guilty being so picky. but i then rationalise it by saying its something forever (unless i loose it) so i should really like it before i get it.

Dear Nikolas,

I thought you might get the joke. Guess you are new member and not much of a lurker.

That photo is of our beloved Achronos.

I was saying he is my cross I bear.

He is short.

And very burdensome.

It's all in good fun.

I'm sure Achronos could give you more infos on what is probably some hip-hop bling he is sporting there.

You can buy whatever cross you choose then whatever length of chain to go with it.

Sorry, I didn't think you would take the post to heart.

Putting orthonorm's head on a wizard would be a much better choice.

As for my pic, there's a word I want to use to describe my attire and me personally but it's not permitted on this forum. "Loser" will sadly have to suffice.

Secondly, the honest background of that pic was a mockery of a friend of mine who posted pictures of himself in the bathroom with aviators, but looks even more loserly then I. However we look like we were seperated at birth.

EDIT: I'm not sure what cross that is. Might be a larger one I don't have anymore, but I'll take a snap of what I'm wearing now tonight.

Or you could get this one off of ebay for the vintage points:

Plus, Achronos, if you horrify her and she flees with that sheet wrapped around herself, people will think she's making some deep religious statement and won't suspect you of any indiscretion.

I'm neither Russian nor a soldier, but I wear one like this:

http://www.gallerybyzantium.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=31_50&products_id=228

I confess I simply liked the design - and it's silver rather than gold, which is a plus for me. I'm really not a fan of gold. There is one small downside to it, however. There's a pointy bit at the top which has woken me up at night by jabbing me in the throat on more than one occasion.

My godsons and I have that cross. I've never had a problem with the pointy thing stabbing me, though.

Could put holy relics inside and use as impromptu altar in case of emergencies.

This is one that my godfather gave me.  I asked him once where he got it and he said he didn't remember.  I suspect that he got it at a monastery he visits regularly, but where they got it would be another mystery.

hey, not ALL our icons have tasteless flashing lights, maybe about 10% from what i've seen
(maybe it's more in north america).
i have a nice women's cross (pattern like rays of sun on it) which used to belong to my God mother,
which she gave me on the day i revealed my other one had broken (it was a tiny thin metal one and now sits
in the car, wrapped in transparent tape!).

i arrived at the house without the cross, and was not allowed to leave like that!

i definitely recommend a tattoo, then you can't loose it.
the traditional place is on the inside of the right wrist, but if you want to be sure it's noticed,
you can get a second one on the back of the hand towards the thumb side.

My wife and I were both given crosses with relics as a wedding present, which we now wear most of the time (unless going somewhere where there's a chance of losing it). I had never thought about using it as an impromptu antimension though!

Yes, I bought it from them. My daughter's godmother bought her a baptismal cross from them and I was impressed by the quality so I bought myself the one I'm wearing. If I remember rightly there was a slight delay waiting for mine to be made as well, but I don't think it was excessive.

Better than what happened to me when I slept with my cross: The chain nearly strangulated me after getting caught in the sheets, several times (which despite what some weirdos here thought, is not pleasurable).

When I was stationed at the Boston Navy Yard back in the 60's, I picked up this cross at O'Brians Catholic Book Store.... a precursor to moving to Orthodoxy. 

Worn it ever since....
