The San Damiano Cross is famous for its association with St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis was praying before this crucifix icon when he received his commission from Christ to rebuild His church. In a day when the modern Church is in much need of rebuilding, many Christians look to this cross as a symbol of renewing this commission from God as part of the New Evangelization. What a great way to remind ourselves or a loved one of this call by wearing the San Damiano Crucifix necklace.
This engraved sterling silver crucifix contains the detail of the original San Damiano Icon Cross that still hangs in Assisi, Italy. The crucifix is called an icon cross because it tells a story. Surrounding the image of the transfigured Christ are the saints who played a role in his Passion, reminding each of us of our role to play in God's plan. This sterling silver San Damiano Crucifix measures 1.5" long and comes with a 20" rhodium plated stainless steel chain. This necklace is ideal for a male or female, and would be a perfect gift for anyone with a special devotion to St. Francis, confirmation candidate or to building up the Church. It is also an ideal size for personalized engraving to add that special touch for your loved one.

Very good gift for a young man.

A nice, solid cross with a unique design. I do wish the details were clearer- if I hadn't been told, I wouldn't know that there were 5 people at the foot of the cross. I think it's a good size for a boy or man to wear and it looks good. Overall, a nice option for Confirmation. Best Uses: Confirmation gift; Cons: Detail isn't clear; Pros: nice quality, Nice size for a pendant, Very unique
EXACTLY WHAT MY GRANDAUGHTER WANTED

Everyone who sees this wants one!

This San Damiano crucifix is just stunning! I was not sure what I would get in this price range, and am more than pleased. The image is clearly stamped, and the diamond cutting around the cross provides a nice shine in contrast to the more matt finish around the figure. The chain links are in proportion to the crucifix..not too small or too large...and there is a "C" ring clasp that is easy to work. The 20 inch length makes it a good choice for a man or a woman. Everyone who sees this says "Wow, where did you get that. I would like one." I hope that the Catholic Company keeps this in stock because it is a keeper and a super gift. I've already purchased a second one.

Excellent for Male or Female Owners. Cons: 20" Chain Too Short; Pros: Bright and Detailed, Size is just right
Gorgeous Crucifix!Chain should be longer
Heather(Round Rock, Texas, December 3, 2010)
It was a confirmation gift for my husband. He loves it but the chain should be longer for men. it turns out he is allergic to the rhodium too in the chain so you may want to check that. Nice size for engraving on back Best Uses: Special Gift; Cons: Chain should be longer; Pros: Beautiful, Great detail, My husband loves it, Solid Construction
My son was happy with his gift...
Ginger(Youngstown, Ohio, April 27, 2012)
The crucifix itself is very nice, not overly shiny for teens/men who aren't much into bling. The 20" chain needs to be longer. I bought a 24" chain to replace it so it would be an appropriate length for my 14 y.o. son who made his confirmation. The engraving was well done. Best Uses: Nice Confirmation Gift; Cons: Chain too short for male, Had to buy 24" chain; Pros: Able to see detail, Barely shiny pewter-like, Large enough for a male, Nice Weight
