As beautiful to look at as it is to wear, this sterling silver necklace features a gorgeous representation of the symbolic St. Brigid cross, including shimmering rose gold plated highlighting the woven middle squares and the ends of each of the four arms of the cross, where the traditional crosses are tied. Approximately 1 in x 1 in on an 18 in chain.
St. Brigid’s crosses have been hand crafted in honor of Brigid of Kildare, a patron saint of Ireland, for whom a feast is held on the 1st of February each year. It is said that she created the first cross out of woven rushes and used it to introduce a pagan man to the Christian faith, converting him shortly before his death. The crosses were placed over doors to grant protection from evil to the inhabitants of the home.
Carry the story & the protection it brings with you in a one of a kind style that is sure to have everyone asking for a closer look. With its appealing two-tone design it will look great both with casual outfits and for occasions requiring more dressy apparel.
