Streling silver pendant. With Silver Chain.
Approx. size : 6 x 28 mm
Ancient Christian symbol. The word Ichthys means fish in Greek, but it is also the acronym for: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter, which means "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Redeemer." It is speculated that its origin is at the time when Christianity was persecuted. When a Christian believed that someone else was, he drew a bow on the floor. If the other person was indeed, he drew another arc that, when crossing the first, formed this symbol.
