"I wish I had a kryptonite cross, because then you could keep both Dracula and Superman away"
- Jack Handy
From house of prayer to fashion house, cross pendant and rosary-inspired necklaces are popping up on the necklines of the famously styled and stylishly famous alike. Cross-adorned strands are an age-old fixture available in a multitude of materials from wood to metals, making their price range as versatile as their vintage or modern-day styles. To update an older t-shirt draw inspiration from Mary-Kate who is no stranger to trend-setting and has been known to sport an oversized cross necklace worthy of a costume piece—we suggest scoping out your local thrift stores for similarly ornate one-off gems. Other style savvy ladies crossing their hearts these days include Spanish blogger, model Agyness Deyn and Nicole Richie who’s such a believer in the trend, she has a cross embellished rosary tattooed on her foot.
