Ornate jeweled cross necklace pairs with delicate sheer lace for a true chic look!

Crosses have been worn for centuries as art, symbolism, faith and for their beauty…

For many of the Christian faith, the cross is the choice of personal adornment. There are
many different types and styles of cross necklaces ranging from simple polished
styles to extremely embellished designs. One of the most popular is the Maltese cross style
that has accents or focal points of cyrstals, diamond or precious stones!

 We’ve done our research and have highlighted a few her that represent some of the most sought after that we could find from antique shops, estate sales and some that we carry in our online jewelry boutique at savings up to 75% off retail!

Some people gravitate toward a more elaborate and ornate encrusted cross look, which we love! The versatility of the clear stones make our pieces wearable for year and years to come!  We love to hear stories of how our customers hand down their pieces they’ve purchased from us to their daughters, nieces and cousins!  It’s a true testament to our talented stylist how all ages look and feel great in our pieces! We’re SO grateful to be able to experience that with our customers and their families!

So, with all of the many ways you can interpret and wear this timeless symbol, we hope that you’ll find a way to incorporate one or more into your look and pick up a timeless piece for the someone you love, they’ll always remember it was you who started off their CROSS collection!

In great health and joy, TDL!

We’re O.I.L ( officially in love )

We couldn’t tell you how long we’ve been fans of just about everything vintage.  Maybe it comes from watching “Back 2 The Future” too many times, or possibly because of our passion for antique shops, estate sales and the famous State Street in Santa Barbara!  Nevertheless, we wanted to show you our latest vintage fashion advertisements that we’re O.I.L. over!
