The Celtic cross is a symbol that dates back to early middle ages in Ireland and Scotland. It has become a popular design in jewelry, including Celtic Cross earrings.
Celtic Cross Earrings
Celtic Cross earrings are a unique and stylish way to show off your love for Celtic culture, Irish culture, and its heritage.
They can come in many different styles and materials. They can be made from gold, silver, or other metals. However, the most common high-quality material that these type of earrings come in are typically either Sterling Silver or Gold.
Sterling Silver is a great alternative to Gold as it is typically cheaper, while still being of a very good quality, and also it tends to suit Irish skin tones.
Wearing Celtic Cross earrings is a great way to express your connection and affinity to Celtic Ireland. Some designs even incorporate other Celtic symbols, such as the triskele or the Claddagh.
Whether you’re attending a traditional Irish event, a wedding, a communion or baptism, or just want to add some Irishness to your everyday look, Celtic Cross jewelry is a beautiful and culturally relevant choice to symbolism your heritage, or your love for Celtic and Irish culture.

Celtic Crosses are one of the many Celtic symbols found all across the Celtic isles, and even far beyond thanks to Irish missionaries. The use of Celtic Crosses was waning over the centuries leading up to the early 20th century.
This could be due to a number of reasons including British dominance in Ireland. However, with the Celtic Revival of the early 20th Century, the Celtic Cross is now a mainstay of Celtic Irish symbolism and can be found all across the island of Ireland.
