Meaning of the Celtic Cross
As is often the case when it comes to Celtic symbolism, the meaning of the Celtic Cross is not immediately clear with historians only able to agree on the ambiguity of the symbol.
Both Catholics and Presbyterians consider the Celtic Cross to be their own symbol and are amazed that the other side has made the same claim.
You could ask a dozen different scholars, friends and historians what the true meaning of the Celtic Cross is and receive a dozen different answers.
For instance, Catholics believe that the circle represented in the Celtic Cross is a symbol of eternity and emphasises the love of God shown through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Yet some historians will tell you that Celtic Crosses were actually phallic symbols carved from the standing stones of the Druids.
These Crosses were shaped in this manner as a method of hiding their real meaning!
Saint Patrick & the Celtic Cross
In Ireland, it is popular legend that Saint Patrick introduced the Celtic Christian cross when he was converting the Pagan Irish to Christianity. The claim is that Patrick combined the sun cross with the Christian symbol in order to link the cross with the sun, the giver of life.
It is believed that Patrick wanted to show the Pagans the true importance of the cross symbol. Yet there are others who state that Patrick placed the cross on top of the circle as a means of showcasing the supremacy of Christ over the Pagan sun!
As you can plainly see, finding a universally agreed meaning of the Celtic Cross symbol is nigh on impossible. While it is fun to speculate, it is even better to simply appreciate the beauty of the Celtic Cross and celebrate its existence rather than debate its meaning.
Thankfully, many people seem willing to do just that as can be seen by the influx of jewellery depicting this symbol. We believe this Emerald Celtic Cross is one of the most remarkable given its flawless craftsmanship and the addition of the alluring and magnificent Emerald.
