Our pendants are inspired by ancient standing stone crosses of Ireland. We have wonderful crosses in Silver and Gold which feature intricate engravings from genuine Irish high crosses. We also offer beautiful claddagh and celtic knot crosses
Many celtic crosses feature Biblical scenes, intended to illustrate scriptural stories for the faithful. In this they are Ireland's answer to the frescoes of Roman churches.
That people knelt in front of the crosses is suggested by the placing of significant panels low down on the shaft. The ring around many of the crosses may have a structural function in preventing the indented arms from snapping off but may also have played a role as a symbol of the cosmos, at the centre of which is the Crucifixion of Christ.
