American Trinity Cross
Sterling silver pendant with ruby, diamond, and sapphire
The American Trinity Cross is named for
its red, white, and blue stones. The ruby,
diamond, and sapphire that enhance it
have a dual symbolism that represents
both Christian theology and American patriotism.
The symbolism of the jewels:
The Ruby represents the love, the blood,
and the passion of Christ. It also symbolizes E Pluribus Unum, From Many, One. Out of many peoples, races, religions, and ancestries has emerged a single nation: the United States of America.
The Diamond represents the purity of Mary.
It also symbolizes the official motto of the United States of America, "In God We Trust."
The Sapphire represents the grace of Heaven. It also symbolizes liberty, one of the founding principles of the United States of America and expressed in the Declaration of Independence.
