History of the Celtic Cross
These symbols are found on many different types of jewelry. Rings, bracelets and necklaces are treasured gifts for those you love. Celtic jewelry can be an expression of friendship and love. A Celtic cross necklace is a strong token that represents religious and cultural beliefs. With equal armed crosses enclosed or backed by a circle, the Celtic Cross is as popular today as it was important during the era of the Celts. The circle behind the cross has been connected to everything from sun worship and symbolism of the sun, to the eternal interrelated nature of everything in the universe. The significance of the delicate details and history of Celtic knots is an extension of this perception of the infinite nature and unification of everything that forms a part of the circle of life.
Select Your Historic Cross
The history of this is very unclear. There is not a clear explanation of the origin of this traditional Irish symbol. Interestingly, Irish crosses were carved into quite large slabs of rocks that lay flat on the ground. Almost all the later versions however, stand in an upright position. Modern Irish crosses are often seen as tombstones in Irish churchyards. However, it's difficult to specify the exact meaning of the peculiar circle in these. It could possibly be a Pagan moon or sun. Maybe it is the symbol of eternity or perhaps a representation of an angels halo. Our Celtic Cross necklaces are of the highest quality - select yours for yourself or your loved ones.
