Ideal for Veneration
Every Orthodox Church has an iconostasis featuring icons of Christ, Most Holy Theotokos, Holy Angels and Patron Saints. Icons are an important part of Orthodox Christian worship ? the devout pause to pay their respect and venerate them by lighting a candle in front of them or kissing them. They channel prayers and people are reminded of important religious teachings in their presence.
Incorporate Quality Wood and Brass
Church jewelry icons are premium products that incorporate many elements that transform ordinary icons into extraordinary ones. Many of the icons sport solid wood frames and brass elements as is the tradition. Painting is rendered painstakingly by experienced craftsmen who understand the varied conventions of different styles of Orthodox Christian iconography, whether it is Byzantine, Russian Orthodox or Greek Orthodox. The traditional tempera method of painting is adopted to ensure fine, long-lasting results.
