Celtic Cross Jewelry

Distinctive symbols of the Christian Celts.

With the arrival of Christianity in Britain and Ireland in the sixth century, great changes took place in the Celtic religion. The monks adapted design elements from pre-Christian Celtic art to objects representing the new religion, including the distinctive Celtic crosses. These usually, although not always, had a circle around the center where the vertical and horizontal arms crossed. Our crosses include a mixture of designs taken from sources such as the ancient tall standing stone crosses, and modern designs which adapt the old Celtic designs.

Not all of our crosses are on these pages; here and there on the other pages are some crosses such as, for instance, the cross kilt pins and square cross men's buckle. There are also some jewelry designs which have crosses in them that are not obvious at first glance, especially square crosses.

 

This page: pewter and costume crosses.
Other pages of crosses: sterling crosses and gold crosses.

Please check the size of each piece carefully against a ruler before ordering. We give measurements of all jewelry pieces on this site so that you will know their size in advance; this will save disappointment, returning pieces, etc.

Pewter Celtic Cross Pendants with Gemstones, Matching Stud Earrings

The crosses below, made in Wales, are made of pewter with real gemstones: sodalite, mother-of-pearl and green agate. We also have matching stud earrings below. If you are not familiar with sodalite, it can vary. Usually it's bluish-purplish (about the color of blueberries), with a somewhat swirled pattern which can have lighter patches, or it can be quite dark. If you are matching a pendant and earrings, please tell us and we'll do our best for you.
