Celtic Cross Jewelry And Its Significance
There are quite a few religious symbols that have made their way to the jewelry industry. There are Angels and Archangels whose images we often find on jewelry products, while the Virgin Mary is also a common enough symbol.
Further, the Crucifixion Cross, along with the Ship and the Star that stands for Christianity itself has been used in the past. Different religious crosses such as the Celtic or the Baptist Cross have also been observed. There are two basic types of Crosses, The Latin cross with unequal sides, and the Greek cross with equal sides.
The Celtic Cross is a Latin Cross that emerged in Ireland, France and Britain somewhere during the Early Middle ages (5th to 10th Century AD).
It is a ringed cross, with a nimbus surrounding the spot where the two arms join.
Significance of the Celtic Cross
While the existence of the Cross can be traced back to thousands of years, it was forgotten about and saw a revival during the nineteenth century. The Cross first gained a revival in popularity in Ireland, and towards the middle of the Nineteenth century spread to other parts of Europe.
During this period, more and more churches began employing the symbol, while it was also seen in buildings and tombstones of the time. Further, images of the cross being carried by priests and emanating light became quite common.
Like most crosses, the Celtic cross also signifies the victory of good over evil. The cross is the embodiment of the Holy Spirit, in whose presence evil cannot exist. This symbolism is what initially encouraged people to put images of crosses on the jewelry that they wore.

Today, there is quite a bit of variety in the kind of jewelry the Celtic Cross is used in. In this article, we will look at one of the best Celti Cross jewelry pieces that you can buy!
