For all Christians, the cross is a reminder of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus, the inseparable phases of a single story. The cross is primarily a symbol of hope and a reminder of the invitation to imitate Jesus in everything, patiently accepting suffering too. It is thought that the cross conquers its definitive value as a symbol under the emperor Constantine, following his vision of the cross as a sign of victory. The Four Branches depict the Four Elements, the Four Parts of the World and Four Human Virtues: the foot, planted in the Earth, symbolizes the Faith; the upper branch means Hope; the width is Charity; the length, the Perseverance. Wearing a jewel with the Cross means bringing with it the protection and comfort of the most powerful and recognized Christian representation.
