St. Peter Cross Earrings
According to Christian tradition, Peter was crucified in Rome under Emperor Nero Augustus Caesar. It is traditionally held that he was crucified upside down at his own request, since he saw himself unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus.
As such, some Catholics use this cross as a symbol of humility and unworthiness in comparison to Jesus.
In recent times, it is used as an anti-christian symbol.
The inverted cross is also a recurring motif in punk rock, black metal, and heavy metal, where it is embraced as symbol of anti-authoritarianism and defiance (but not necessarily Anti-Christian)
