Christian Fish Jewelry

Christian Fish Jewelry- The Greek word for fish is "ichthys." In the first century, early Christians made an acronym stemming from this word: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter (Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior). Although the fish symbol remains one of the most popular Christian jewelry charms today, it has not always been exclusively Christian. Years before, the fish symbol was used among Greeks and pagans because it attracted less suspicion among people of faith that were persecuted.

In the first century after Christ, Christians adopted the fish symbol as a secret password to distinguish friends from enemies. Legend has it, if two strangers met in a road one would draw an arc on the ground. If the other stranger completed the arc- creating a fish, both strangers knew they could feel comfortable together.
