The Dagmar Cross is a popular gift for Christenings, confirmations, and weddings for those of Danish heritage. Several hundred years before Denmark officially became a Christian country in 900 AD, missionaries often wore crosses to show their new faith. Many were placed in churches or buried with their owners. Of the few that survive today, one of the most elaborate and beautiful is known as the Dagmar Cross. Sterling silver pendant with 18" chain.
