A beautiful piece of Irish heritage, this Connemara Marble Cross Pendant from Solvar would make a great gift for anyone who wants to take a little piece of Ireland with them from time to time. The stone insets are hewn from real Connemara marble from the west of Ireland, making each individual piece utterly unique due to the natural striations in the marble itself. The Celtic cross itself is made from a highly-durable base metal with a polished silver finish and braided detailing in the trademark circle that defines the Celtic cross form itself.
The circle around Celtic crosses is drawn from pre-Christian imagery, where it signified the eternal cycle of life present everywhere. Adapted to the Christian cross, it signifies the eternal nature of God’s presence and love. Celtic crosses have been found dating back to the earliest efforts to convert the pre-Christian Irish in the 5th century and Irish High Crosses reached their heyday in the 9th to 12th centuries, many of which still stand to this day, with some reaching over two meters in height.
