Crucifix Necklace

Frequently Asked Questions

Before converting to Catholicism, I didn’t really understand why Catholics always had a crucifix in their churches. Every time I went into a Catholic church, I was taken aback by them, but it consistently reminded me of what Jesus did for me. Having been Catholic for a little over two years now, I realize the crucifix’s importance in my life. It is to serve as a reminder of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

“As they were looking on, so we too gaze on his wounds as he hangs. We see his blood as he dies. We see the price offered by the redeemer, touch the scars of his resurrection. He bows his head, as if to kiss you. His heart is made bare open, as it were, in love to you. His arms are extended that he may embrace you. His whole body is displayed for your redemption. Ponder how great these things are. Let all this be rightly weighed in your mind: as he was once fixed to the cross in every part of his body for you, so he may now be fixed in every part of your soul.” – St. Augustine

My hope is that this necklace is a consistent reminder for you of what Christ did for you!

JEWELRY DETAILS/CARE TIPS
What materials do you use to make your jewelry? 
We use high-quality metals: 14k gold fill and plated and 14k rose gold fill only. All supplies and materials used to create Stella & Tide products are sourced from the USA.

What is gold filled?  
Gold filled is a pressure-bonded layer of gold that has 100 times more gold than plated jewelry. It is durable, won't chip or flake, is tarnish resistant, and is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry, at a much more reasonable price. It looks beautiful, and has a finish that will last years if cared for properly!

How do I care for my jewelry?  
Store your jewelry in a dry, air-tight area such as a plastic sleeve or the box your jewelry arrived in. Use a micro abrasive polishing pad sparingly to remove any oxidation or tarnish marks. Gently rub across the surface until the shine has been restored. Occasionally remove skin oils by rinsing with warm water and buffing with a soft cloth. Take extra care around perspiration, salt, chlorine, perfume, lotions, and makeup as they can damage fine jewelry.  


CHAIN LENGTHS
What chain length do you recommend? 
Our go-to chain length suggestion is 16 inches! This length tends to fits most people very well. You can also add an extender to allow it to be lengthened (total of 1.0 inch) as needed.

What layering lengths do you recommend? 
We suggest 1-2 inches between layers. Our most popular layering lengths are 13/14 inch or 16/18 inch combinations. Extenders are a great way to ensure the perfect layered look. If you need specific suggestions contact us—we’d love to help you out!


PAYMENT
What payment methods do you accept? 
Payments are accepted through PayPal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, or credit/debit card (see the site footer for a full list of accepted cards). 

Do I have to pay sales tax? 
Only Indiana customers are charged sales tax.

We are absolutely confident in the quality of our products and want you to feel the same way. Non-custom pieces must be returned/exchanged within 14 days of receipt (based on USPS timestamp date received). Refunds can only be issued after the return package is received at S&T HQ. We are currently unable to accept returns on custom or personalized items (custom saint necklace, custom date bar necklace, etc.). Contact us right away (hello@stellatide.com) with any concerns!

If you are unhappy with the length of an item, email us (hello@stellatide.com) and we will work with you to resolve the issue. We do accept length exchanges, however, you will be responsible for any shipping costs and may be subject to a $9 re-working fee.
