Stylishly Spiritual Jewelry: Faith or Enduring Fad?

Thursday October 14, 2010 by Hafsa

Faith-themed jewelry is nothing new, but pre-Like A Virgin, it was largely limited to those who found meaning in the symbols. Lately we're seeing a resurgence of the trend: whether it's divine designs for the devout or pretty pieces for the fashionable, are religious accessories a serious contender for your style statement?

I have a small swarovski cross that I really love. I don't wear it for fashion reasons, it's more of a reminder to me what is important. I know a lot of people who wear it strictly as a fashion statement and I'm still not sure what I think about that.

I'm not spiritual so I wouldn't wear any spiritual jewelery. But I do think a lot of people just wear it for fashion. It's kind of frustrating to see people that have no interest in certain religions wearing it just because they think it looks "cool".
