Simplistically chic, the delicate silver Claddagh cross beautifully preserves rich Celtic and Irish history with smooth design and refined style.
The multi-directional design of Celtic crosses has led to a variety of dynamic interpretations of its meaning throughout history. Many believed the four limbs stood for the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water, while others believed the cross was an evolution of the Sun Cross that was originally a wheel with four spokes. The halo around the cross was also thought to signify unity. The Claddagh also has vivid symbolism that spreads the message of loving, loyal friendships.
At the center of this sterling silver Celtic cross is the Claddagh ring that doubles as the halo of the cross. The bottom of the ring displays two hands uniting to hold a heart symbolizing the love between two friends. On top of the heart is a crown noting the loyalty the two friends should have towards each other. The head, arms, and leg of the cross boast flared outward projections that are nostalgically reminiscent of ancient Celtic crosses.
This necklace is perfect for casual and office looks and will complement any color.
