I purchased this crucifix for my husband's Big 40 birthday. He's an usher at our church every Sunday and so I decided to get him a religious gift for a change. When I presented this gorgeous crucifix to him, as soon as he laid his eyes on it, it actually brought a tear to his eye. He couldn't thank me enough. He cherishes this crucifix so much that he never takes it off. The design is so intricately detailed.
