Celtic crosses have been an ever-present part of history and culture not only for Ireland but also for other places throughout the world with strong Irish communities.
They’ve also been a source of creative inspiration for artwork and jewelry like the Claddagh silver cross with gold plate heart.
This necklace combines two proud symbols of Celtic culture into a graceful piece with an encouraging message.
The exact origin of the Celtic cross is a mystery, but one theory is that it was originally a Sun Cross to honor Taranis, the God of Thunder. It’s claimed that what started out as a four-spoke wheel evolved into the halo-adorned Celtic cross recognized today. Over time, the cross was also adopted as a symbol of Christianity representing Jesus Christ, with the halo ring representing eternity.
This necklace pendant is set in lustrous sterling silver, with the cross’s halo ring doubling as the Claddagh symbol.
Another famous symbol of Ireland, the Claddagh symbol occupies the bottom of the ring and consists of two hands of friendship grasping a gold-toned heart of love that is topped with a crown of loyalty.
This necklace is a wonderful way to share your faith and show off your Irish pride.
