Wash-Thy-Sins Silver & Gold Pendant
Richly ornate silver and gold pendant with a deeply meaningful inscription around their perimeter. "Νιψον ανομηματα, μη μοναν οψιν," the Greek phrase meaning "Wash away thy sins, not only thy faces". In Greek, it is an anagram, i.e., it reads the same from left to right as it does from right to left.
Particularly famous for having been inscribed above a fountain in the courtyard of the famous Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (present day Istanbul in Turkey) during the Byzantine era (395 AD to 1453 AD), this inscription appears in a number of Orthodox churches and monasteries (usually inscribed in all capitals).
In this richly ornate sterling silver rendition, the verse is written around the perimeter of a central cross, creating the face of each cufflink as a seal. Around the seal there is a highlight of 22K gold.
