This sterling silver cross necklace is a modern interpretation of the Celtic Cross, particularly popular in Ireland and the Celtic regions of Britain and France. Legend suggests it was introduced into Ireland by St. Patrick. A Celtic Cross is traditionally surrounded by a circle at the central crossing, though in this version the circle has been enlarged. The symbol of the cross has hundreds of variants in design - all are a symbol of faith in Christianity. Part of the Irish jewelry collection making a great gift anytime.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
