Christmas day is nearing fast, but it is not too late to check off names from your gift list. If you are still thinking of the perfect gift to get for an important person in your life, then something from the OG Christian Collection may be just right for this holiday.
Christmas Gift Symbolism: Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh
The idea of gift giving on Christmas comes from the wise men who gifted the newborn King gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Gold showed His Kingship, representing His authority. In biblical times frankincense was often burned in the temple as an incense offering to worship, so it symbolizes Christ as The Holy God.
Myrrh was also traditionally used as an embalming oil to anoint dead bodies for burial. This gift, then foreshadowed the sacrifice Jesus would make to pay the debt of man’s sin. So as we celebrate His birth with gift-giving, we are reminded that it is a holy day that marked the beginning of salvation, giving access to a new identity in the Kingdom.
Families and friends give gifts to show love during this time of year because the greatest love was shown to all on the day God gave His son. No earthly gift could ever amount to that given by God, but what better gift is there to give to children of the King than fine jewels?
You’ll find the OG Collection offers a selection of meaningfully designed pieces that carry Christ-centered values. These treasures are the perfect reminder of your identity in Christ. Pendants, rings, and earrings serve as a physical symbol of the things a Christian carries in the heart.
This holiday season give your grandmother, grandfather, mother, father, sister, brother, wife, husband, son, or daughter the gift of wearing scripture for all to see. It may just catch the eye of someone in the world seeking Truth, sparking an opportunity for evangelism.
14K Gold Fish Pendant: Symbolic Link to Wise Men
From birth till death, Jesus Christ led people to walk in faith. His coming to earth didn’t just result in wise men and shepherds reaching the manger. It also ushered in a school of disciples. And being that some of them were fishermen, Jesus directed them, “And he said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’” (Matthew 4:19). As a symbol of this, the 14K Gold, Oval Cut, Fish Pendant holds the meaning of discipleship.
Throughout His ministry, Jesus taught many messages and set the example for how to reach people—or cast one’s net. For this reason, the fish has become an emblem of Christ’s followers. This symbolic pendant is customizable, with three different frame designs: a beaded, rope thread, or white diamond. The beaded and rope thread silhouettes hold a classic look in Yellow Gold while the white diamond pairs elegantly with White Gold.
There is a wide selection of gemstones to complete the look. However, the three that fit the holiday season the best are Blue Sapphire, Emerald, and Ruby. Blue Sapphire, like Gold, represents authority and power. It is the very color of the throne of God seen in the book of Ezekiel.
Emerald ties in with the evergreen pine trees, used as Christmas trees in most homes. The reason for this tradition comes as another symbol of Jesus’ holiness as eternal God. Like evergreens, which hold their lively green color year-round, Jesus lives eternally as the son of God.
Ruby evokes the red blood shed by The Lamb; Jesus being unblemished and without sin, made the final sacrifice for all the sins of man. These jewels not only remind Christ’s followers of their identity, but they also serve to call the attention of those lost.
Armor of God Pendant and Ring: Strengthen Your Faith
As Christians, we are instructed to write God’s truth on our hearts and wear it around our necks. Though it is figurative, the armor of God can be physically worn! The OG Collection presents an Armor of God Pendant and an Armor of God Ring.
Engraved on each shield design is the armor of God, “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” (Ephesians 6:14-17).
As one wears the pendant around their neck or the ring on their hand, they make a declaration of equipping oneself in faith. This is a powerful way to prepare oneself each day. It serves to restore confidence, not in ourselves, but rather in the intangible things God provides. It is His truth that gives us hope when the enemy speaks death. It is His righteousness that covers our inner being when our flesh seeks to kill.
His peace guides our steps and when the enemy aims to make us fall, our faith guards us. Salvation covers our heads, and the word of God cuts with authority. Is there a loved one in your life that needs this daily confidence? Or perhaps you know the person who exemplifies this strength and would appreciate a physical representation of taking up their shield and putting on their armor.
This symbolic design is for the warriors of God’s kingdom, for the soldiers of His governance. The Armor of God Pendant is a great gift for military personnel or veterans who have been accustomed to wearing dog tags around their neck. Let this pendant be issued from the Kingdom of God. The Armor of God ring is another honorable wear for a grandfather, father, or husband.
Symbolism of the Crown Ring: Defining God’s Children
Beyond the role as a spiritual warrior, is the identity as a child of the King. The Crown Ring of Identity has multiple insignias that define God’s children. The phoenix of new birth is an emblem signifying the dying of self to be reborn in Christ through baptism, “‘I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.’” (Matthew 3:11).
The world emblem illustrates man’s dominion on earth and authority to break spiritual bondage and loosen chains. The angel wings emblem embodies protection and guidance received when God commands His angels over us. It also denotes a separation from this world, as children lifted by the Holy Spirit and carried on wings like eagles. The cross exemplifies our identity in Christ and salvation from sin, which then leads to your initials sealed as the unique declaration of identity on this Crown Ring.
Exploring Anchor Cross and Curved Anchor Cross Pendants
Apart from this piece, there are other rings, pendants, and earrings that take the classic and more subtle cross design. Still, the Anchor Cross and the Curved Anchor Cross Pendants add a notable difference to traditional Christian jewelry. These pendants distinguish the commitment to one’s faith and the action of anchoring oneself to the truth of God’s word and identity in Christ. The Curved Anchor Cross takes it one step further with the cross bar being a nail, depicting Jesus’s sacrifice.
Consider the OG Christian Collection for a meaningful present that embodies the essence of Christmas. Rooted in biblical significance, this collection reflects the timeless tradition of gift-giving by the wise men to the newborn King. As we exchange gifts with loved ones, let’s remember that Christmas signifies the inception of salvation, demonstrating the ultimate act of love through God giving His Son.
The OG Collection offers finely crafted jewels that encapsulate Christ-centered values. These pieces, such as pendants, rings, and earrings, serve as tangible reminders of Christian virtues and scripture. The Fish Pendant embodies the essence of discipleship, echoing Jesus’ great commission, “‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (Matthew 28:19-20).
Customizable in various designs and gemstones, it carries profound symbolism that correlates with the gifts given by the wise men; authority, eternal life, and the sacrifice of Jesus. Moreover, the Armor of God Pendant and Ring stand as powerful reminders of equipping oneself with faith, truth, righteousness, peace, salvation, and the Word of God.
Wearing these pieces serves as a declaration of spiritual preparedness, offering a daily source of confidence and strength rooted in God’s truths. Beyond this portrayal of a spiritual warrior, the Crown Ring of Identity bears multiple emblems symbolizing baptism, dominion over spiritual bondage, divine protection, and our identity in Christ. Additionally, the Anchor Cross and Curved Anchor Cross Pendants signify a steadfast commitment to faith and anchoring oneself in God’s truth, with the latter emphasizing Jesus’ sacrifice through its nail-shaped crossbar.
In essence, the OG Christian Collection encapsulates the spirit of Christmas, offering not just jewelry but symbols of faith, identity, and spiritual commitment. These timeless pieces serve as profound gifts, carrying the weight of Christian values and offering a beacon of hope to those seeking truth and salvation. As we celebrate this season, may these gifts remind us of the true meaning behind Christmas and our identity as children of the King.
