  • Celtic Cross Jewelry Inspirations

    Inspiration for Celtic Cross Jewelry comes from many places. St. Patrick’s influence can be seen all over Ireland, in the heart of the cities, and in the rolling green fields. All across Ireland, Celtic crosses stand tall. Visitors seek out the most famous ones at Kells, County Meath, and Clonmacnoise, County Offaly, and sometimes they’re surprised to stumble across less famous ones while driving around the island. It’s a popular motif for gravestones as well as Irish celtic cross jewelry for women.

    While the meaning of the cross as a Christian symbol is obvious, Celtic cross jewelry made in Ireland has a distinct history and context. Long before Patrick spread the message of a new faith in Ireland, the Irish landscape was dotted with carved stones. At Newgrange, elaborately carved boulders mark the entrance to the Neolithic passage tomb. Ogham stones have stood for centuries with their own script paying tribute to people and places that were important to our ancestors. Roscommon and Galway are home to surviving La Tene stones, beautifully carved with flowing spirals. So when Christianity arrived, the ancient Irish adapted their traditional stone carving to reflect their new beliefs.

    Like other, older carved stone monuments, many of Ireland’s Celtic crosses are more than ornaments. They are texts. The bases feature carved illustrations of important Bible scenes as well as decorative knotwork and other designs. They may have been used as places to instruct people about
    the story of Christianity when the faith was new in Ireland and not just monuments.

    Ireland’s Most Famous Celtic Crosses,

    Ireland’s standing crosses date back to the early Middle Ages, the period where Ireland earned its reputation as the land of saints and scholars because of its many monasteries. Visitors to Ireland can see these amazing structures in person. These four are amazing surviving examples of the art of the standing Celtic cross.

    • Kells, County Meath: This small town has a big reputation for the Book of Kells, but it was also home to five standing Celtic crosses. Three surviving ones and the base of a fourth area on the grounds of what is now the Church of Ireland. The fifth, known as the Market Cross or the Gate Cross, stands by the courthouse under a shelter.
    • Clonmacnoise, County Offaly: The remains of this monastery perched on the banks of the mighty River Shannon are incredible. The site includes three Celtic crosses as well as two round towers.
    • Monasterboice, County Louth: This ancient abbey is home to three crosses. One is well- preserved but the other two have suffered more from the elements. The site also boasts two ruined churches and a round tower. Cashel, County Tipperary: The Rock of Cashel is a stunning complex of monastic buildings on a hilltop with amazing views. It was originally the site of the Kings of Munster, and Brian Boru was crowned there. It was also where St. Patrick baptized King Angus, making him the first Christian king in Ireland. The remains of the Cross of St. Patrick are here.
