Each piece is not mass produced but rather carefully crafted in several different studios in Germany. The sacred symbols of faith that they produce are biblically-based and offer the finest in artistic quality.

The Wedding Rings evoke the Eternity of God’s Love

The powerful symbolism of this elegant bronze cross makes it a perennial favorite. In the center of the cross, the wedding rings overlap in an openwork design, representing the union of marriage. These overlapping rings also evoke “∞”, the symbol for eternity, and remind us that marriage is not simply a temporal matter but a union of two eternal souls (and families) for eternity. This has echoes in Genesis 2:22-24: “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

50 years together testifies to the power of love

The 50th Anniversary Covenant Cross is an anniversary gift that will be cherished for a lifetime as a compelling reminder of the awesome power of love, human and divine.  As Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the famous Jesuit paleontologist and thinker, once wrote:

The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.  

                                   “The Evolution of Chastity,” in Toward the Future, 1936, XI, 86-87)

Those who celebrate 50 years of covenantal love together have indeed harnessed these energies of love for God.
