A Celtic Cross Charm with Knot work. Made from 925 Sterling Silver.
Celtic cross is a symbol that combines a cross with a ring surrounding the intersection; the cross’ stem being longer than the other three intersection. It belongs to a wider group of crosses with a nimbus. In the Celtic Christian world it was combined with the Christian cross and this design was often used for high crosses – a free-standing cross made of stone and often richly decorated. With the Celtic Revival the shape, usually decorated with interlace and other motifs from Insular art, became popular for funerary monuments and other uses, and has remained so, spreading well beyond Ireland.
