Ichthus Fish Jewelry

The ichthus fish (more commonly known as the Jesus fish) has become a well known icon of modern Christianity. This famous fish has made its way into Ichthus Fish Pendantjewelry, clothes and even car decals.

The word Ichthus comes from the Greek word that literally translates into “fish.” The original spelling of the word “Ichthys” has roots tracing back to Greek words all relating to God and the Holy Savior.

The fish was chosen as a symbol for modern Christianity because of its role in religious history. The first uses of the fish as a religious symbol trace all the way back to the 1st century catacombs in Rome. It is also believed that several of Christ’s disciples were fisherman. The fish has now been turned into a symbol labeling ichthus fish jewelry wearers as “people of god.”

Today many Christians wear the ichthus fish as a means to showcase their Jesus Fish Ring with Crossreligion. Christian fish pendants are often accompanied with the word JESUS written inside of the hollowed fish, hence the obvious name: Jesus fish. Ichthus fish rings and charm bracelets are often accompanied by a cross since the ichthus fish and cross go hand in hand as symbols of Christianity.
