  • Stunning San Damiano crucifix necklace
  • Colorful pendant with clear enamel overlay
  • Framed in oxidized silver
  • Made in Loreto, Italy
  • Large size ideal for a man or woman

On a recent buying trip to Loreto, Italy, we found this stunning San Damiano crucifix pendant on a silver necklace. Due to its larger size, this beautiful San Damiano crucifix pendant makes an ideal necklace for a man or a large accent jewelry piece for a woman.  The large size also clearly shows much of the detail in the original.  Although the artist is unknown, this cross is well-known as the one beneath which St. Francis of Assisi prayed when the Lord commissioned him to rebuild the Church. More of a colorful icon than a crucifix, it artistically features images of people who bring special meaning to the cross itself. The five major witnesses to Christ’s crucifixion: Mother Mary, St. John the Beloved, Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and the Centurion. Also shown are minor witnesses -- angels, patron saints, apostles. At the top is an image of the resurrected Jesus surrounded by angels. The original San Damiano cross hangs in the Santa Chiara (St. Claire) Church in Assisi, Italy. 

  • Crucifix measures 1 3/4" (H) x 1 1/4" (W)
  • 18 inch oxidized silver chain
  • Comes with small plastic box

    This is now my everyday cross. I have it on all the time. I feel blessed to have it and wear it. I am a 3rd order Franciscan and this connects me to St. Francis in such a beautiful way. I highly recommend this for all.

    Just Okay

    I bought the gold and the antique finishes. I was a bit disappointed with the quality. It's very attractive on the front, but the back is very plain and the whole piece is very thin in appearance. Feels and looks like stamped metal. The chain on the gold one is terrible. The links constantly bind and bunch up. I would not recommend this item to anyone for purchase.

    St. Francis Damiano Crucifix Necklace

    I ordered this beautiful crucifix online while researching the origins of it and seeing it above the alter of my Parish. During my research I came across an exact replica of it as a necklace from "The Catholic Company". The company had a very good video on the history of the crucifix and how it inspired St Francis of Assisi. It only took 3 days to get to me in Southern CA. It was much better than I expected in size and quality of craftsmanship from Italy.
