Kelly Ripa must LOVE sideways cross necklaces because she has several. Small, Long and Skinny, and her latest - with a gold bezeled Diamond. Mine is not a Diamond, it is a 14K Gold bezeled Cubic Zirconia, but otherwise it's a very close replica. While watching Regis and Kelly I kept seeing a single tiny sparkle on her neck. Her hair covers her neck most of the time so I wasn't sure, (until today), whether it was a separate necklace or attached to her sideways cross. So... now I make it available to you at a fraction of the price!
If you can afford to splurge a bit, this is an excellent value. My 'cost of goods' is much higher with the solid gold necklace, but my mark-up is the same as the gold filled, since there is the same amount of work involved. So, if you can... go for it! This will ship in yellow gold unless you specify that you want white gold in the message to seller box.
My sideways cross necklace has been featured on celebrity websites, blogs, and youtube videos such as:

This piece was originally inspired by Tara Frey, (author/magazine editor/blogger). She asked me if I could make a gold sideways cross similar to the one that Kelly Ripa and Taylor Jacobson wears, (Rachel Zoe Project),because she couldn't find one anywhere. So... I present to you my handcrafted, copyrighted version.
Handcrafting this 14K SOLID GOLD horizontal cross was a time consuming, multi-step process, but I'm so happy with the results. Once I forged it, drilled the holes, sanded and polished it to a shiny finish, I attached it to a 14K Gold chain. I set this beautiful cross slightly off center, added a piece of 1" chain, then added the very sparkly Cubic Zirconia that is channel set in 14K Gold. The cross measures 12 x 17mm, and the diameter of the bezel measures 4mm. The chain does shift to the side naturally, and this looks really cool too. The chain, including the cross, is 16 1/2" from end to end. It has a 14K Gold spring clasp, and a 'Theresa Mink' Quality Assurance signature tag attached. The clasp is stamped with the 14K Gold insignia. If you want the length to be longer, please contact me for a price. If you want this is 14K White gold leave a message when you check out.
I have the largest selection of crosses in my shop - sterling silver, gold filled, 14K yellow, white, and rose gold. Many sizes and finishes.
