14K Large Celtic Cross Charm

14K Large Celtic Cross Charm

$ 545.00

Celtic Crosses are a traditional cross with a circle behind it to represent the Sun, which was an important part of Celtic culture. This double sided Celtic Cross is manufactured in Dublin by Solvar.

Throughout Ireland and Scotland, the Celts crafted these magnificent symbols in stone. Celtic Crosses predate Christianity and were first used by pagans to worship the sun. In pagan times the circle of the Celtic Cross represented the Sun, being the center of their lives. It was not until the 4th Century AD when it was introduced by the first Christian Roman Emperor Constantine, that the Celtic Cross was used to represent Christians victory. During the great conversion of many pagans to Christianity, Christian philosophers adapted the Celtic Cross, and taught the meaning of the circle to represent Christ, the center of Christianity.

This large Celtic cross charm is crafted in 14K gold. The design pays tribute to the original Celtic crosses dating back to the 9th century in Ireland. It would make a wonderful addition to your charm collection or can be added to a chain to create a Celtic cross necklace. Irish Hallmarked in the Assay office at Dublin Castle.

This lovely piece will arrive gift boxed and is approximately 1.38" L x .75" W.
