This classic Irish cross pendant is a beautiful necklace made to last. The Rhodium Plated Celtic Cross Pendant from Solvar is made with a strong base metal and plated in luxurious silver rhodium. Inside the cross are elegantly spiraled Celtic knot patterns that call back to the earliest of Irish art found to date back millennia.
The Celtic cross has a rich history in Irish Catholicism, with stone carved versions dating back to the 5th century. By the 9th century, monumental stone crosses known as High Crosses were being erected throughout the country, with some standing over two meters in height and still dotting the landscape. The circle around the center of the cross signifies the eternal nature of God and God’s love and is thought to be adapted from a pre-Christian symbol that conveyed similar themes within the Druidic culture. In this, it is a perfect amalgamation of Irish history and Irish Catholic heritage.
