Pros

  • Many Items in One

    Nativity Stone Cross comes with a diamond cut rope that is 21 inches, addition to a decorate faith case, certificate of authenticity, angel brooch with stone, and the jewelry cross with the stone. For believers of Christian faiths, these necklaces offer a potentially direct link or connection to Jesus, as they are symbol and historical.

  • Famous Designer

    The jewelry Paul Dimitriu is the one responsible for designing things worn by Pope John Paul II in addition to medallions for NASA. It is this man who set the nativity stones into the jewelry.

  • Lots of Styles

    There are three different designs, each of which have a center stone taken from the Cave of the Nativity located in Bethlehem. You can find nearly half a dozen “Nativity Stone Cross” necklaces sold today, each of which claim to have the same thing because they are all different versions of jewelry from the same company.

    Not all of the designs are the same design, with slight differences in the cross part. For example, some of the crosses are solid gold, while others are solid silver. Some are a gold or silver frame of a cross.

    Most of them use a Celtic cross design with the ruffled ends rather than the sharp ends. One design is an angel flying through the air and in its hand is the stone. Another is an image of Jesus on the cross with the stone in both of his hands.

Concerns

  • Authenticity and History

    It is important to note that there is no scientific evidence to support the claim that this stone from this cave is really where the historical figure was born. This is just one theory for where in Bethlehem the historical figure was born.

    The company claims their authenticity by way of signed document from the High Priest of the Church of the Nativity. Be advised that this individual has no authority as a historian, but is merely a leader of one church which believes this particular cave to be the actual birth cave of Jesus. .

History Behind the Stones

Most people believe that Jesus was born in a stable. However, a finding from a professor at California State University discovered that most people living in the city of Bethlehem at the time did so in caves. As such the structure in which Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph is purportedly not a stable, or a building, but rather, a cave building. In 1963 a cave which is allegedly the cave where this historical figure was born was visited by an archaeologist. This man took back stones removed from the cave. Tests today and geological surveys have been used to determine the authenticity of these stones from a cave in Bethlehem. As such, they are now being offered as stones in the necklaces.

Critical Advice

This offer can be found elsewhere online, not just from their as seen on TV advertisement. That being said, there are many necklaces which have the exact same name and claim to have the same stone. Most of them are costly, about the same price. There is one which is one eighth the cost. This one has completely negative reviews around the web due to the fact that it is not an authentic stone, not from the Middle East. Instead, it is a plastic stone. So if this is the necklace you want to buy, be careful to get one with an authentic stone and be aware that authentic stones will come with a higher price tag.

LISTEN CAREFULLY to the WORDS in the AD

They lead you to believe the stone is from the very spot jesus was born, but listen to the whole ad. They say the stone "represents" the very spot where jesus was born. Represents could mean it comes from anywhere ( hopefully from the holy land, but who really knows?

I would not order it for the above reason.
