Product DescriptionThis Celtic pectoral cross is a design that highlights the endless knot artistry of the ancient Celts in silver. This expertly crafted pectoral cross acknowledges the powerful symbolism of the early Celtic Christians and St. Patrick's ability to open their hearts to the message of Christ. The pectoral cross measures 4 inches high x 2-3/8 inches wide x 1/8 inch deep and hangs on a 32 inch chain. Designed to be both noble and comfortable, the pectoral cross size and length of chain works well for most clergy.
Although widespread use of wearing a pectoral cross in the western church did not begin until about the 14th century, Pope Hilarius is the earliest church official to mention one. Many designs for a pectoral cross are ornate, but this one is in its own class with the hammered silver surface underneath the variety of Celtic knot work on all parts of the cross. The hammered surfaces on each link of the pectoral cross chain reflect light handsomely. A hard surface case with blue velvet inside is included with your pectoral cross purchase to provide storage.
