Rock Crystal Celtic Cross

Trimmed in a regal 18kt gold pronged frame, five pure rock crystal prisms gleam like the north star on a clear winter's evening. When looking at crystal, realize and imagine that the body brings out ten times the beauty of a photograph. The decorative braided gold and the gothic prongs around the crystals resemble the gothic form of wrought iron gates that surround a church yard. A circle of braided gold connects all limbs of the cross in a celtic pattern. Circle crosses are associated with celtic tradition and were adopted by scandanavian sculptors for use as decorative monuments. The symbolism of the circle is unity, the trinity and the sun. With its significance as a great symbol of the Christian faith, this cross is a celebratory and decorative form . The height is 2 3/4 inches. The width is a tad short of 1 1/2 inches. The condition is excellent.
