One person’s “large” is another person’s “small” and vice versa. I’ve learned that size is very relative.
I’ve had people contact us looking for a small Native American cross pendant and they mean 2-3″ tall and the next person that wants a small cross means 1/2″ tall.
So I’ve reorganized all of our crosses into size categories. The fabulous webmaster here put all of the photos in scale so now you can see how the crosses relate to each other in terms of size.
Just to keep life simple, I went with
Small – under 2 ” tall
Medium – 2 – 3 ” tall
Large – over 3″ tall (and several are over 5″ tall !!)
The height of crosses like all other pendants is measured from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant. Some pendants have very large bails so that will add substantially to the overall length but since the bail plus the pendant results in the total drop length (where it will hang on you !), the bail is included as part of the total height.
Here are a few pics in scale to give you an idea of what I am talking about.
