Predating even Christianity, Celtic Crosses would eventually become incorporated into the Christian religion. Most of the magnificent Celtic Crosses that can be found today were commissioned by Christians. Appearing as early as the 7th century, they began to dot the Irish landscape, primarily serving as boundary markers. By the end of the 11th century, no more Celtic Crosses were raised. Today they are renowned for both their simplistic beauty and the symbolism found in many of the detailed carvings.
While weather and other factors have not always been kind to these monuments, Celtic Cross jewelry is a wonderful way to remember the symbolism represented by these crosses. Just like the crosses, each piece of Irish Celtic Cross jewelry is handcrafted in Ireland. As a finishing touch, it is then hallmarked at Dublin Castle.
