If it was a Coptic Cross...then it is highly probable that she is Orthodox...Orthodox Christians DO wear crosses...it is something they do, that is VERY important to them...even the children do. I agree that she couldve put it under her shirt...I do that anyway..as I dont like doing things that bring undue attention to myself.

There is a big difference between a nose piercing and something that is HIGHLY significant to a person and their faith.

I also wanted to say that many Coptic Orthodox actually have the cross tattooed onto their forehead or wrists...it is "that" important to them
(but I do still hold to what I said before about wearing it under her shirt)

I wasn't sure about the significance (well, I knew it was associated with Orthodoxy) but if it is more "mandated" than in other Christian sects, that could alter my opinion on the subject.

I will say it is very important...in Communist Russia..Orthodox would continue to wear their crosses, even if it meant death or imprisonment.We wear it to continually remind ourselves that we are Orthodox Christians and to live our lives in humility and love and service to others. It is not just a piece of jewelry to us.
