When Buffy first arrived in Sunnydale, Angel sought the Slayer to gift her a cross necklace. During her high school years, Buffy often wore this necklace, also used it sparingly in her battles against vampires, and at least once for torture. This necklace most notably saved her life during the first day at Sunnydale, when it fended off the vampire Luke from biting her neck.
When hearing that she would die at the Master's hands, Buffy, in an emotional rage, took the necklace off after announcing her “resignation” to slaying. She reacquired it after she decided to face the Master, wearing it during their confront.
Buffy's counterpart from an alternative universe also wore a cross, despite not having met Angel's counterpart yet in this reality. Meeting him for the first time, the necklace led her to identify Angel as a vampire while attempting to rescue him.
