The early days of the Christian faith where families who chose to believe in Christ were heavily taxed, In some cases where the family was unable to pay these taxes, the empire would forcefully take away young Christian boys, convert them to Islam and transform them into state soldiers. Parents would tattoo the Coptic cross on to their children to remind them God is with them and remember to whom they belong.

What's Gold Vermeil?
Vermeil, also known as “silver gilt”, refers to high quality (pure or sterling) silver that is plated with a thin layer of gold. Most vermeil jewelry available now is created by electroplating silver with gold, a chemical process that uses an electrical current to bind the two metals together. Gold Vermeil will wear off because it is plated. . We also have a 925 Sterling Silver option. If Gold Plating wearing off is an issue for you, please do not purchase this item. The Speed at which a piece fades depends on your body chemistry, climate, as well as the frequency it is worn.
