Connemara Marble

Stainless Steel Celtic Cross Pendant

The high Cross is one of Ireland’s iconic symbols. The earliest surviving crosses date from  the 7th centuries and the finest examples date from the 9th and 10th Centuries.

These magnificent crosses are carved from stone and are characterised by the ringed design.

Some will argue that this ring is used to support the cross bars of the cross, whilst a more popular legend states that it was the inspiration of St. Patrick to convert the Irish to Christianity using a simple cross that he held in his hand  – he held this against the background of the sun to symbolise the transition of sun worship to Christianity.

Most of the crosses that we can still see here in Ireland stood in Monasteries and as this was an era before printing, the crosses were richly carved with Celtic knot work and images from Scripture.

We can visit these crosses and actually touch the surfaces that were carved over a thousand years ago. This is living history and a great connection to Irelands rich heritage.

This is a stainless steel pendant presented on a roped 18″ chord in a velvet pouch.
