Whether you’re showing off your style or your faith, a cross necklace is a classic piece of men’s jewelry. And if you’re looking to invest in a nice cross necklace to add a special touch to your outfits, we’ve got you covered.
Each of the 9 cross necklaces collected here is truly special — made from precious metals or studded with diamonds — making them perfect to buy for yourself or give as a gift.
And since nearly every cross necklace is unisex, you’ll have a big variety of styles and materials to choose from.
Mounted on a thin chain and bezel set with two diamonds, Cosanuova’s cross necklace is a refined and attractive piece that doesn’t draw too much attention to itself. Made of pure 18K white gold, though, it’s highly reflective — and an excellent match for outfits from casual to formal.
Where the previous cross necklace used diamonds in an understated way, Kaizarin’s diamond studded white gold cross pendant is as bold as possible. Thirteen diamonds make it stand out with sparkling intensity, and the white gold base can be paired with a white gold chain to further emphasize the pendant.
Minimalist in style but gorgeous to behold, Bony Levy’s 14K gold cross pendant necklace is the most versatile piece of jewelry on this list. It eschews the sparkle of diamonds for a solid gold take, paired with a thin gold chain that completes the minimalist look.
When you’re looking to make a statement with your cross necklace, look towards this one from Bloomingdale’s. It’s absolutely loaded with pavé diamonds, all set in 14K white gold; just keep in mind that you’ll need to purchase a matching white gold chain to hang it on.
Fashion-forward designer David Yurman has knocked it out of the park again with this most distinctive of cross necklaces. Made of 18K yellow gold, the cross pendant is interestingly beveled to create dozens of eye-catching reflective surfaces. A perfect necklace for the rockstar look.
Taking a totally different approach to the classic cross necklace, Bloomingdale’s Black Onyx cross necklace juxtaposes its jet black stone with shining 14K yellow gold. It’s an incredibly unique piece that’s sure to draw compliments.
It’s hard to get much further from a classic cross necklace than this one from David Yurman. Taking a gothic style and tone, it sets black diamond pavé stones amid an 18K gold body. If you’re looking for a cross necklace to finalize your dark and brooding style, this is the best way to go.
