Celtic Crosses: Symbol of Eternity 


cr-24cFor the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:18

This unusual rendering of a Celtic cross does not include the ring that is prevalent on many pendants with Celtic designs. It is also different in that the arms and the staff are all of the same length. Crafted of solid, 14k yellow gold, the knotwork symbols include the Trinity knot on each extension, with a star in the very center. The edges of the piece follow the path of the knots, and create a frame around the whole composition. In the background you see textured gold that acts as a base upon which the pattern is clearly seen, adding contrast and visual interest to the piece. Cross measures 1″ x 1″ or 1 5/16″ tall including bail/hoop. You can add a gold chain (optional) or use one of your own. Also available as Celtic Cross Pendant in 14k White Gold as an alternative. Both are part of our extensive collection of Celtic Crosses.


qgcr-xr718cThat I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. ~ Philippians 3:10-11

Another different Celtic Cross is our Claddagh Cross Necklace in 14k Two-Tone Gold, because instead of the usual ring around the center of the cross, this one features the popular Claddagh design. In this symbol, the hands represent friendship, the heart love, and the crown loyalty. The white gold Claddagh is centered on the cross, which has ornate arms and staff including some very intricate engraving. Cross measures just over 1″ tall x 11/16″ wide. Pair this quality piece with more claddagh jewelry from our Claddagh Jewelry collection.


qgcr-k5143cAnd he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world. ~ 1 John 2:2

Now we see a more traditional Celtic cross, yet still unusual in its execution. The flat cross pendant is rendered from an Irish design, with the eternal knot pattern carefully etched out of a textured background. Once again, the design includes the Trinity knot at the ends of the arms and staff, surrounded by a thin, shining line that forms a frame. The eternal ring is simple gold, representing the eternal presence and love of God for His people. Cross measures approx. 1 1/16″ tall (1 5/16″ tall with hoop/bail) x 3/4″ wide. Match this piece with jewelry from our Irish Jewelry collection.


qgcr-d851cFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16

Seeing our risen Lord upon the cross reminds us of His unfailing love for His creation. In this perfect rendition of His suffering, we have the figure of Christ worked in 14k white gold, mounted on a solid 14k yellow gold cross. The crucifix is in a more traditional Latin form, and features a Celtic design behind the Christ figure. A thick line outlines the whole cross, making angled corners that gives the piece even more visual appeal. Crucifix measures just over 1 3/8″ tall (1 13/16″ tall with hoop/bail) x 13/16″ wide. This lovely crucifix is also available as a 14K White Gold Celtic Crucifix Pendant and is part of our collection of Gold Crucifixes. “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole” (Acts 4:10).
