Silver Oxidized Celtic Cross
A classic Celtic Cross pendant for men, this is a strong symbol of faith. Dating back to the ninth century, the Cross is stuff of legends and serves as a reminder to all who wear it of the tradition and power it holds as well as its links with Ireland’s heritage. This pendant has been crafted by our master designers in oxidized sterling silver, and Irish hallmarked in Dublin Castle.
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 cross arrives to you boxed on an 20" oxidized sterling silver chain. This piece is approximately 1” wide x 1 1/4” tall.
