Silent Night Christmas Pageant

The Christmas pageants of childhood are still so vivid – jacket, tie, white shirt, button-down collar, hair combed and slicked back. The 1950’s felt rock solid, it felt like it was forever.

Back to the Christmas pageant – there were the plays, reenactments of Joseph & Mary and the Christ child, and always, always there was the song “Silent Night”. I can today, over 60 years later, hear the harmonica tuned to begin the song and a dozen little voices singing Silent Night. Back then sounds had color, voices echoed with love, and events carried meaning far greater than the event itself.

When Silent Night was sung, the sky darkened, stars shown, and the star that lead the wise men looked like our Silent Night Star Cross. The star was held by a 6-year-old, on the end of a long stick.

We designed this piece to look like the star I saw as a child in the night sky over the manger. We created this piece to accept a small 5x3mm faceted oval blue sapphire. The finished Christian cross is as sweet and perfect as the song Silent Night. We make the Silent Night Star Cross always with 4 little diamonds surrounding. In the center, we set a blue sapphire gem.

If you are moved by the memory of Silent Night sung by a children’s choir this Christian cross may be the perfect piece for you.

Why We Love This Cross

It’s precise. A piercing presence in the night. Yellow gold is warm. A blue sapphire is cool. The four diamonds which surround are brilliant and are forever. Suspended on its gold chain, it lies two inches from the heart.

The Evening Train

I know the night train. I’ve waited at crossings. I know the early morning train even better, because it wakes me and I listen as it moves through the valley. I know where all the crossings are. I have waited at the gates watching red lights flashing, heard the bells ringing and listened for the whistle as the train approaches. I have felt the power of the engine and trailing cars as the earth trembles. Every time I wait, I watch as the rail cars roll by, and like a kid, I count.

The Sunday Morning Train

The 4:10 train first arrives in a dream. Some nights, depending on the wind and its direction, I can hear steel on steel and the clickity-clack of tracks. Always, I can hear the whistle. The whistle fills the valley. A whistle at every train road crossing. The whistle comes in the open window, fills the room, touches everything, crowds into a dream, crowds close enough I wake to wonder where I am. A whistle loud enough to touch every tree, every leaf of every tree in the valley. Shrill, sharp, piercing – it strikes every leaf, top and bottom, rattling the molecules inside and on some microscopic level, the leaf trembles. The sound no more settles than the train approaches another crossing and the sound, the whistle, travels out touching everything again in the valley.


Later, 8AM church bells ring from the churches in the valley, calling everyone to worship. The faithful dress, crosses adorned, then they walk to church – some with bibles in hand. They sit, stand, sing, sit again, and kneel. As they lean forward, they feel the cross swing, inches from their heart.

The Silent Night Cross,
And What Can Only Be Felt

And then there is all that can’t be seen. What we can see is good, solid, wholesome, pure, true. The unseen…the mystery…the power, the force, the light and life. The unseen is felt, it echoes within, it tells stories. It tells stories about us and people we know, it speaks of heaven and as it does, the mystery deepens.

The cross is earthly, the gold is from the earth’s rivers and streams running fast. The diamonds are of the earth too – deep, deep, hundreds of feet down, frozen inside of ancient volcanoes. The blue sapphire is from Sri Lanka, off the south-eastern tip of India, the fabled gem island of Ceylon. Light blue sapphire, the color of baby tiger’s eyes – beautiful in the center of this Christian cross. A spiritual treasure from the jeweler’s art: gold found, gems cut – it’s like magic.

We gave extra special attention to our offering of Christian crosses because our name is Cross. The silent Night Cross is a very fine precious petite Christian cross. All four arms of the cross come to a perfect point. In the center is an oval blue sapphire surrounded by four high-white brilliant diamonds. The Silent Night Cross measures north to south 18mm, or ¾-inch. Our cross is 14 karat yellow gold and on its 18-inch gold chain lands two inches from your heart. Silent Night is a lovely expression of faith. In yellow gold this cross is ready to ship fast safe and free anywhere USA. White gold can be special ordered… approximately six weeks. We don’t make Silent Night in Silver.

Silent Night Star Cross

Two thousand years ago, a very long time ago. A star in the night sky shined bright. A point of light moving across the dark, through the velvet night sky. A light seen by many thousands around the world. A light of wonder so precise, so brilliant. It has touched and moved half the world of humanity for two thousand years. The Silent Night Cross is a testament to faith.

The Hymn: Silent Night

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Silent Night was first sung in 1818. For over 200 years, this song has been a Christmas tradition in churches around the world.
