If you're searching for a small token to carry around with you to remind you of your values and faith, you've come to the right place. PocketCross offers pure gold, fine silver and solid bronze pocket crosses that you can take with you wherever you go. What gave me the idea to start PocketCross? It all started with my employer and friend, Fred Underwood.
On the way home from a business trip, Fred asked me if I would look around the passenger side of my truck for a small cross that might have fallen out of his pocket. I immediately pulled over and, after looking, reluctantly told him I couldn't find it. After looking again the next day, I called his office. He told me he'd found the cross tangled in his keychain. He then told me why his cross was so important to him.
Fred gave his dear friend who was dying a small cross. Before his friend died, he also gave Fred a cross. This is the same cross that Fred has kept for years. Fred told me each day he is reminded of what his cross means to him when he...
Picks it up in the morning and puts it in his pocket | Brings it out with his change to pay for something |Takes it out of his pocket at night
It shows others where his heart is.
I searched everywhere, from Christian retail stores to jewelry outlets, but I only found wooden, aluminum or sterling crosses. When I asked several jewelers, they told me that pure gold, silver or bronze crosses couldn't be made.
I visited a local gold, silver and bronze coin shop and noticed many pure gold and silver coins of various sizes. It was there I learned that pure precious metals must be forged or minted.
I contacted every gold, silver and bronze mint across America until I found one-Regency Mint in Orem, Utah-that said they could produce pure precious metal crosses. The design, fixture, dyes and engraving are the first ever done.
As PocketCross became a reality, I knew I would be pleased whether I could make only a few crosses for my family and friends or produce a million.We also produce cowboy/cowgirl crosses which are specially crafted for cowboy churches in the Longview, TX area.

I was deeply touched by Fred's story and decided I wanted to find a similar cross for my teenage son Brandon. Not as an item of worship, but a simple reminder of the most important aspect of life. I also wanted to give crosses to others very dear to me, to help them remember Jesus' sacrifice for us.
I wanted these crosses to become heirloom-quality keepsakes. I remembered the story of the Lord God requesting that Moses use only pure gold, silver and bronze to make the holy items for the temple. That's why I decided to search for crosses made from pure precious metal, so they could be kept or passed on from generation to generation.
