A much loved jewelry piece for both men and women, the Celtic Cross is worn as a symbol of faith or as a fashion piece and remains a classic favourite for all ages. Celtic Crosses dot our landscape, the earliest of which were inscribed onto rock or created in wood. Legend has it that the Celtic Cross, with its unique circle, was created by St. Patrick who combined the pagan circle symbolising the sun with the traditional cross in order to convert pagans to Christianity. Many are richly decorated with Celtic designs and emblems.
Emeralds are unrivalled for colour by any other gemstone. The emerald was considered to be the stone of prophecy, loved by Cleopatra and the sacred stone of the Greek goddess of love, Venus. It is the stone of love, compassion and healing and because of its colour is forever associated with Irish jewelry.
This cross is in 10K yellow gold and is set around the cross circle with four emeralds.
