A Celtic cross necklace with a central turquoise gemstone.
This Celtic cross is typical of many found in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They were carved in local stone by the native Celts, where they symbolised the bridge between earthy (horizontal axis) and celestial (vertical axis) planes.
This particular design is based on the Nevern cross - a stone monument at the church of Nevern, Wales. The cross was built by the Celts and dates to around the 10th century or early 11th century. The Holy Trinity triskeles knot decorates each cross section of the design.
Part of a collection of Celtic-inspired jewellery from the British studio, St Justin, each necklace is crafted by hand in Cornwall, England.
Ideal as a gift, it comes supplied in a velvet presentation box.
