“On a hill far away, stood an old rugged Cross
The emblem of suff’ring and shame
And I love that old Cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
So I’ll cherish the old rugged Cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown
Oh, that old rugged Cross so despised by the world
Has a wondrous attraction for me
For the dear Lamb of God, left His Glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary
In the old rugged Cross, stain’d with blood so divine
A wondrous beauty I see
For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me
To the old rugged Cross, I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away
Where His glory forever I’ll share”
This old hymn reflects how hardships and difficulties that were bravely borne in life, may one day be exchanged for reward and sanctuary in Heaven. These copper earrings are the perfect reminder of faith, hope, love and the ultimate sacrifice.
The hammered texture makes them extraordinarily unique. The turquoise and dark patinas give them a weathered look. A flash of copper shows through here and there on the textured pieces. These cross earrings are a great compliment for many outfits. You can dress them up or wear them casual.
I have applied a metal sealer to the front side of the earrings to help preserve the colors. The nickel free ear wires and other areas of the earrings will naturally patina. They measure 1.5″ long (2″ with wire drop length) x 0.375″ wide at the widest point.
