About This Sideways Cross Necklace
This small gold-colored side cross necklace by Beaux Bijoux is a favorite of many. The necklace has a simplicity that gives it a charming, feminine quality. The delicate cross pendant is only ¾ inch long, making it suitable for women and girls of all ages.
The chain is 16 inches long, with a 2 inch extension, providing added versatile in how it’s worn and wear it falls on your neck. Petite women and young girls will especially like the way this smaller sideways cross fits them. And anyone may choose to wear it as one of multiple chains or pendants at the same time.
This necklace is available on Amazon, and some of the phrases that Amazon reviewers have used to describe it include “very cute and classy looking”, “lightweight, shiny, and the perfect size”, and “very tough chain”. Most reviews are 4 or 5 stars, with very few negative comments. A couple of people don’t care for the 2 inch extension, which is certainly an understandable personal preference. One person did report having the chain break after a short time, but stated that the vendor quickly sent her a replacement with no hassle. That says a lot!
I chose this one as a gift for my goddaughter’s first communion. I took it to a local shop in the hopes of having it personalized with an individualized engraving of some sort, but it is a bit too small for anything but the tiniest of lettering. So don’t expect to be able to customize this one with a personal sentiment or message.
That girl was thrilled to receive it that day, and has pleasantly surprised me by choosing to keep it on at all times since then.
I have to say that she is a tough little cookie, and even with her wearing it while playing at the park and rough housing with the dog, it has continued to stand up perfectly well. Also, it has not tarnished or lost its brilliance at all after over a year.
Her mother loved this side cross necklace so much that she too went out and bought a matching one of her own.
I was also excited to see that there is a sterling silver version of this same necklace (that is not gold plated) also offered on Amazon. So now you can choose between gold or silver, or get one of each.

One thing that most reviewers seem to agree on, including me, is that this is a good quality item for its very reasonable price. In fact, it is very similar in appearance to the Dogeared brand Sideways Necklace which is also available on Amazon. I do like that one (review to follow soon), and am a fan of the Dogeared brand, but it does cost more than twice as much as this one.
So if price is a consideration, with this necklace by Beaux Bijoux you can have the pleasure of buying both a silver and a gold one for the same amount than you would for just one of the others.
