Souvenir Cross Hits Nail On The Head

People who want their own keepsake of Coventry can now have their very own Cross of Nails, courtesy of a city jeweller.

Cross of NailsThe silver and gold crucifixes in the style of the city’s famous symbol are currently on sale at Francis and Gaye Jewellers in Cathedral Lanes Shopping Centre.

They are already proving a hit with people in the city, and are fast becoming popular presents to send to relatives who have moved abroad.

£1 from every silver cross of nails, and £2 from every gold model, will be given to the Coventry Cathedral Development Fund.

Boss Roger Francis said the crosses had been designed with the blessing of the Cathedral.

He said:

“The response we are getting is very encouraging. We are doing it in several different versions and we are finding that a lot of people who have relatives overseas are buying them to send them.”

Mr Francis added that the cross came as part of a good package, which includes a free chain and box.

He said:

“I would like to say they are limited edition, but we don’t know how many we will sell.

“I expect they will be popular as gifts at Christmas and Easter.

“Because of the nature of it I don’t expect a lot of interest from visitors from London or Edinburgh, but there is a lot of local interest.

“I think we will only be selling in our shop and on our web-site, and it probably won’t go on sale in any of the other venues.”
