    Cross Necklace...

    Advertisements
    Not sure if this is the right place lol but it is a gift so I guess.

    I know hubs will be able to wear a cross necklace with his uniform just has to be under the shirt like his tags, right?

    What I wanted to know was should I wait until after Boot to give it too him?

    Should the chain be shorter than his tags?

    This is what I am getting him
    Celtic Warrior Shield Irish Cross




    Finish: Polished
    Metal Type: Sterling Silver
    Jewelry Collection: Celtic Warrior Shield
    Chain Length: 18" Bell Chain
    Width: 19.3mm (0.76")
    Tags: silver celtic warrior cross, celtic warrior shield jewelry


    Hubs knows that my Irish Heritage is important to me. More so because most of my family history I learned from my grandmother and she and her family is Irish.
    It would mean a lot to me to have him wear this.
    I just want to make sure it would be OK.
    Is the chain to long on this? IDK how long the chain is on a set of tags.
    Should I get a chain smaller than 18"?

    y'all

    I don't have any answers for you, but I wanted to wish you luck finding them Me and my girls wear crosses that my MIL bought with her pastor in Israel , they are very special to us as I am sure any thing you buy your Dh would be to him.

    Even if he can't wear it in uniform remember that he is not always wearing one and will eventually be able to do so. My Dh usually puts things important to him on his key ring because of his job this includes his wedding ring.

    I'd wait until after boot too. 18" chain at the smallest, IMO.

    I love that cross, btw!

    A lot of people that I know just put the cross on the chain with their dog tags. DH does that. I am pretty sure you can only wear one necklace and that includes your tags. Could be wrong of course.

    Wait till after boot camp. You could send it but with military mail nothing is safe, insurance or not.

    I gave my husband his after BCT(boot) and he wore it on a chain 18" that was almost as long as his tags. For awhile he placed them on the same chain.
