"I do not normally write such posts. In fact, I have never done so on any of my sites, despite the numerous requests I keep receiving in this regard. But given the appropriateness and appeal of what I am going to speak about – the Nativity Stones Cross – and the attraction I felt towards it from the outset, even before I received and held it in my hands, I cannot help but write about it..." (Click here to read more)

Looking for a Christmas gift that not only has special meaning for the person who receives it, but also captures the true meaning of Christmas? The Nativity Stones Collection, made up of a variety of gold and silver cross-pendant necklaces and ornaments each designed to hold a small stone from the Cave of the Nativity, provides such a gift. Originating from the Cave of the Nativity – the site Christians have officially recognized and celebrated as the birthplace of Jesus Christ since A.D. 325 – Nativity Stones offer a unique way for people to maintain the presence of Christ in their daily lives.

“The stones are not only symbols of Jesus’ birth, sacrifice, death and resurrection, they offer a direct connection to Him,” said Ricardo Montalban, actor and spokesperson for Nativity Stones. “I cherish my Nativity Cross and ornament for helping me be close to Jesus Christ. My faith in Him has always been a great comfort to me.”

Gift-givers who want their present to reflect the meaning of Christmas can purchase stones from the Cave of the Nativity, the site Christians have recognized as the birthplace of Jesus since A.D. 325. About 2.5 tons of stone were removed from the cave during its only excavation in 1963.

Stanley Slotkin, a Los Angeles businessman and philanthropist, visited Bethlehem that year. An amateur archaeologist, Mr. Slotkin was invited to see the cave by Mayor Elias Bandak. Mr. Slotkin expressed an interest in the stones that were being removed. The mayor, who had no plans for the stones, offered them to Mr. Slotkin, who first shipped them to the United States in 1964.

Initially, the stones were donated to various non-profit organizations, including the American Heart Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and American Lung Association for use in fund raising. Mr. Slotkin also has given them to the sick and terminally ill in hospitals all over the United States.Now, the stones have been used to make a jewelry line of ornaments and religious symbols called the Nativity Stones Collection.

Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? A gift that not only has meaning for the person who receives it, but also captures the true meaning of Christmas?

The Nativity Stones Collection – a variety of gold and silver cross pendant necklaces and ornaments each designed to hold a small stone from the Cave of the Nativity – provides such a gift. They originate from the Cave of the Nativity – the site Christians have officially recognized and celebrated as the birthplace of Jesus Christ since 325 A.D.

The Christmas tree ornament from the Nativity Stones Collection embodies the true meaning of Christmas with the Star of Bethlehem and a Nativity Stone embedded in the center.

Cross-pendant necklaces from the collection are available in sterling silver, 14K solid gold and 22K gold finish and in two sizes: classic (1 ¾ inches high) and petite (1 ¼ inches high). Each cross comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and a video that tells the story of the Nativity Stones.
