Sterling Silver Celtic Crosses
Made in Ireland by Amethyst of Dublin
The subtle merging of cultures characterizing the ancient Celtic Church is brilliantly represented in the Celtic Cross. Here the Sun Wheel, symbol of the eternal cycle of life, death and the rebirth is joined with the Christian Cross symbol of the risen Christ. It is believed that St. Patrick combined the symbol of the sun, to give pagan followers an idea of the importance of the cross by linking it with the idea of the life-giving properties of the sun. To this day, at dozens of monastic sites throughout Ireland, these exquisitely carved monuments bare silent testimony to the deep faith and bold artistry of their creators.
