Christian crosses share the same main meaning. They remind us of the central, shared belief that Jesus died on the cross and rose again. But crosses come in different styles that represent different cultures and artistic styles as well as focusing on different aspects of the miracle at the root of the faith.

Celtic crosses have a distinctive style. Their elaborately detailed decoration has roots in the insular art tradition of Ireland and Britain. Standing stone Celtic crosses often feature carved Bible scenes on the stem and arms. Some of the ancient stone crosses in Ireland have inscriptions in the Ogham script. We don’t know for certain, but it is possible these were used as sites to preach or instruct – perhaps even by St. Patrick.

The standing stone crosses found around Ireland, Scotland and Wales feature a ring around the center of the cross. This ring and the knotwork that often decorates the cross are said to symbolize eternity and wholeness. Another theory is that the ring replicated the pre-Christian sun symbol,
enticing people to the new Christian faith. Variations include the four arms of the cross almost touching to hint at a ring and rounded ends of the cross.

A Celtic cross necklace is much more than a simple symbol of Christian faith. It also reflects your connection to Celtic cultures ancient and modern. If your roots or just your heart stretches to Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany or the Isle of Mann, this is the accessory to celebrate that connection.
