Our elegantly simple Communion Cross Necklace from Solvar Jewelers is the perfect gift for a special Irish communion. Made of rhodium-plated base metal, beautifully detailed, and with a plastic pearl at the center, this pendant is a gorgeous symbol of Irish faith.
Celtic crosses themselves have been around since the beginning of Ireland’s conversion to Christianity in the 5th century by St. Patrick. By the 9th century, megalithic stone High Crosses dotted the landscape and by the 12th century some rose upwards of over two meters in height and were frequently richly detailed with Celtic knots, human and animal figures, and other features of Irish design and religious imagery. Today, the Celtic cross is among the best-recognized symbols of Irish Catholicism and worn the world over to signify heritage and culture.
Solvar Jewelers was founded in Dublin in 1941 and has remained family-run since its inception. Now in its third generation of Irish jewelers, Solvar prides itself on constant design innovation while remaining true to Ireland’s rich heritage. Each piece is uniquely crafted and bears the official hallmark of the Dublin Assay Office to verify quality and material.
