Dagmar Cross Jewelry in 14K Gold or Silver
The Dagmar Cross, a Byzantine style cross, features several holy images: to the left, then clockwise, the Blessed Virgin, St. Basil, St. John the Baptist and St. John Chrysostom. In the center is Jesus Christ as ruler of the world; on the back is Christ crucified. The cross became especially associated with Queen Dagmar of Denmark, endearing it to the Danes, all the people of Scandinavia, and the Germans (the Queen was from Bohemia). Not surprisingly, it has come to be a special symbol for Lutherans.
