Claddagh Cross – Small

SKU: C101

The Irish Celtic Cross has been a symbol of faith for centuries in Ireland whether the belief is pagan, Christian or another religion.

However it is most widely known as a powerful symbol of Irish heritage. Originally crafted in stone Celtic crosses predate Christianity and in pagan times the circle of the cross represented the sun.

It was not until the 4th century AD that it was used to represent Christ’s victory and later to represent Christ, the centre of Christianity.

Legend has it that the Claddagh symbol was originated by Richard Joyce, a Galway seafarer kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa where he learned the art of a goldsmith.

When he was released, nothing could keep him from his beloved Galway where he returned to become a master goldsmith and where he created the Claddagh ring.

For centuries this was used as a wedding ring by the fisher folk of Claddagh village, which nestled outside the walls of Galway city in the west of Ireland.

This tiny Celtic cross had a traditional shape with Claddagh symbols to the centre and Trinity design to the shaft and would make a lovely gift for children and women of all ages.
