Taboo with religious gift?

I know very little about Christian gifts. Is there any taboo about getting my Catholic girlfriend a cross necklace?

I was raised as Mormon, so I know general Christian themes. Mormons don't use traditional Christian symbolism, like crosses, in their worship though.
My girlfriend wore a cross until a few weeks ago, when the chain broke and she lost the cross pendant. I'd like to get her a replacement one as a gift. She's from Italy and Catholic. I know a lot of different kinds of Christians wear crosses, but are there any specific taboos associated with this? Can I get the wrong 'type' of cross for a Catholic?
The one she had previously was a simple silver one. Here's a little picture of it.
It'd be great if I could find something similar to that one as well, so any websites to check would be neat!
