"Icthus" w/ Six laser point north facing permanent 1500 gauss Magnets, now with matching magnetic ring and 10% off when purchased together.

Icthus is the Greek word for fish. The fish symbol was adopted by early Christians as a secret sign, due to persecution. The fish symbol was chosen because, in the original Greek, the letters stand as an acrostic for "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior." An acrostic is a poem whose initial or last letters can be put together to form a word or message.

In the times of the early Roman Christians, followers of Christ were often persecuted for their faith and any outward symbol of their belief could often get them imprisoned or killed. However, for their underground movement, the practitioners needed some means of identifying one another, and for safety they chose a symbol that was not directly associated with their faith. Thus the fish symbol was born.

For the symbol to be a success there had to be some recognizable links with the faith. The fish was said to symbolize the baptismal waters, the loaves and fishes that Jesus used to feed the five thousand, and Jesusí own declaration to the disciples to become 'fishers of men'. The Greek word for fish, icthus, is an acrostic consisting of the initial letters of five more Greek words, which briefly but clearly described the character of Christ and His claim to the worship of believers: 'Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter' which translates as 'Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour'.

The symbol of the fish and the word Icthus gained a meaning of high significance for those early Christians, and is still recognized as a Christian symbol today. Chromed fishes can often be seen stuck onto the back of Christians' cars, and for some time a chalk fish-mark was used by homeless wanderers to mark the houses of people who could be depended on for charity or for food.

Very Nice Bracelet 5 I really like this bracelet and have worn it everyday since receiving it. It has a beautiful finish, was packaged nicely and I have received several compliments. I don't care as much for the ring but love the bracelet.
