In the Lutheran church, youngsters typically have their first communion and confirmation at the age of 15. A traditional gift offered in celebration of this rite of passage is a cross pendant. The cross symbolizes this important moment and gives courage to boldly face the challenges on the way towards adulthood. The cross pendant is typically given by a godparent. On this page you’ll find our cross pendants and other pieces that will bear memento of the special day for years to come. Each piece of jewelry is packed in a special Kalevala Jewelry box that serves as a gift box on its own.
All of our jewelry is hand-made in Finland at the Kalevala Jewelry factory in Helsinki.
