The original of this cross is found in Co. Waterford, Ireland. Waterford began as a Viking settlement in the 9th century led by Jarl Ottar, and the most prominent of the Viking rulers was Ivar of Waterford. Waterford’s most recognizable landmark of Viking origin is the massive Reginald’s Tower, which is believed to be the first building in Ireland to use mortar. The city is also known for Waterford Crystal, the glass making industry founded in 1783. Shamrocks decorate this lovely cross, which are a symbol of the Trinity used by St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland. The heart and rays streaming from it represents our radiating heart’s love, our light into the world. Your order is accompanied by a short history and the meaning behind the designs in this cross.
