Small Celtic Cross Pendant - 10K
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 small 10k gold Celtic Cross pendant is a powerful symbol of faith, and serves as a reminder to all who wear this gold piece of the tradition and power it holds. This cross is double sided and comes on a 18 inch 10K gold sing chain. In wearing it, we also cherish Ireland’s precious heritage.
