Solid 14kt or 10kt Yellow Gold Celtic Cross

Dimensions: 7/8″ wide by 1 3/4″ high

In Ireland, village cemeteries had standing crosses eight to ten feet in height which towered above the graves below. The Gallery Byzantium “Kilklispeen Cross” is a design replica of the pattern decorating the east side of the South Standing Cross in the Kilklispeen cemetery, County Kilkenny, Ireland. The design is influenced by Byzantine decorative motifs. The round projections at the center and on the arms of the cross symbolize the head, heart, hands and feet of the crucified Christ. This cross dates from the early tenth century.
