Star jewelry: cross pendants like Kim Kardashian

Jewelery and bijouterie

A jewelry trend that has been circulating on social networks for a long time. His face was Kim Kardashian, who is known for her love of large crosses. Recall that Princess Diana's 1920 diamond and amethyst cross, which she recently acquired at Sotheby's Royal and Noble auction.

Despite the fact that the trend is only gaining momentum, it is almost impossible to pass it by. Therefore, we show in detail and suggest how to apply it.

Source of inspiration

For illustrative examples and detailed instructions for use, we suggest turning to the creative heritage of the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. It was their archives that gave us Kim's luxurious exits and prompted us to take a closer look at the cross decorations.

The idea of ​​using religious symbols referring to the motifs and images of Byzantine art is incredibly close to famous fashion designers. Not only jewelry, but also the basic Dolce & Gabbana wardrobe (including regular jeans and T-shirts) celebrates the Catholic aesthetic and demonstrates a bold interpretation of religious paraphernalia.

If you have a free moment, also refer to the work of Coco Chanel, Gianni Versace, John Galliano and, of course, Alexander McQueen. At various times, these designers have used the aesthetic value and recognizability of the Christian symbol in their greatest collections.


First, let's decide on the purpose of the decoration. If you need a spectacular product for filming or attending a particularly important event, then choose massive crosses inlaid with precious stones or crystals. It can be both chokers and traditional pendants (by the way, you can not choose, but wear them together).

If we are talking about everyday basic jewelry, then look towards neat items made of precious metals.

Stylish welcome

We exclude the traditional way of using such a product and offer an unusual option. The idea is to wear several pendants with a cross at once (they can be either the same or a contrasting size).

We complement them with evening dresses (as an example, the Versace gold outfit created for the Met Gala 2018, which Kim Kardashian completed with two small crosses) or we add individuality and versatility to sports style (a combination of a basic T-shirt and favorite joggers or denim).
