A cross pendant necklace with a turquoise centrepiece, inspired by Celtic jewellery.
The Celtic cross, as in this design, symbolised the bridge to higher energies and planes of existence. It represented the relationship between the celestial realm (vertical axis) and the earthly plane (horizontal axis).
In more detail, the circle around the cross symbolises both the Great Wheel of Life and the solar energy. The tall shafts represent the union between the earth and spirit, the stones firmly fixed in the earth and reaching upwards to the heavens. In this way it can be seen that Celts easily adapted their ancient religious beliefs to the new ones introduced by Christianity.
The necklace forms part of a Museum collection of Celtic-inspired jewellery from the British studio, St Justin. Each piece is crafted by hand in Cornwall, England.
Ideal as a gift, the necklace is supplied in a velvet presentation box.
