Celtic cross

There are many different kinds of religious jewelry.  The patron saint medals and the four-way medal are two popular ones from the Catholic faith.  Other Christian-based designs include the cross and the crucifix.  These can be made into necklace pendants, bracelet charms, earrings, brooches, tie tacks, lapel pins, and rings.  Many are simple and casual in appearance and design, intended of course as a humble display of your faith.  Others are more elaborate and are specifically designed to add a touch of class and personality to your formal wear.  The Celtic cross is a historic image that you can find on a variety of jewelry.

One of the most significant traits of Celtic jewelry is the knot symbol.  This is very popular for engagements and marriages because of its suggestive representation of eternity and communal relationships.  You will see it often in rings especially, which is perhaps why it is so appropriate for nuptial ceremonies.  You may also find other traditional religious symbols at affairs like this, like the Christian cross or the , cross pendants.  You can also sometimes find the symbol on priest’s robes.

The Celtic cross is much different from the basic Christian cross in two ways.  First of all, the Celtic version, which was integral to pagan faith, features a circle that sits evenly around the vertices of the cross.  When the Christians began to convert the pagan community, they also tried to convert the symbol too.  What was once completely symmetrical in every way grew to resemble the symbol you probably recognize today.  The Christian Celtic Cross is basically the traditional Christian Cross with the adopted circle.  This, of course, was to help transform the pagan community with symbols they will recognize.

Celtic cross jewelry is much like any other spiritual accessories.  They can be made from a variety of materials like simple wood.  This is appropriate since there was a time when spiritual jewelry, artifacts, and relics were made of humble textiles.  Sandalwood and olive wood were common choices.  Now, you can find these pendants in every type of precious metal like sterling silver and gold too.  10k, 14k, 18k gold varieties create many options, and so do the different colors too.  Singularly or in combination, yellow, white, and pink gold can give this image great depth and personality, and diamonds and birthstones continue to diversify.
