Our Irish Cross Earrings feature a small, delicate Celtic cross, hand-cast in sterling silver. Each earring measures .75 inch tall and comes with a sterling silver hook.
The Celtic Cross represents an important part of Celtic lore that is more than 1,500 years old. The shape — a traditional Catholic cross intersected with a circle — appears on historic grave markers, church records and silver metal work across the Celtic culture. Although the exact origin of the cross is unknown, one popular legend attributes the design to St. Patrick.
When St. Patrick first interacted with the Druids of the region, he noticed their focus on circles. Rings — like the structures at Stonehenge — represented the eternal cycle of life for early Celts, one without beginning or ending. St. Patrick understood the significance of these symbols, so he drew a cross with a circle overlaid. Thus, the Celtic Cross combines the two faiths: the Cross of Christianity and the eternal circle of the Druids.
