The Celtic Cross, a cross with a circle, has various opinions about it's origins and symbolism. It is widely believed that St Patrick took the ancient Celtic sun symbol and extended the bottom length of that symbol's even armed cross to form a melding of the Christian Cross and the sun symbol, and thus the birth of the Celtic Cross. This little Sterling Silver Celtic Cross Charm is approximately 8mm x 18mm. It looks nice on a leather cord, a chain, or even on a simple thin ribbon. This item is not recommened for children under 4 years of age due to chocking hazards. Photos of jewelry are enlarged to show detail.
