2. Connemara Marble Celtic Cross
So next up it’s our best selling pendant and it’s easy to see why. The Celtic cross has long been a favorite in Irish jewelry design and this one has it all. First of all there’s the beautifully detailed Trinity knots which make up the cross circle. Then there’s the arms of the cross, crafted from Connemara Marble, Ireland’s ancient and unique gemstone. Finally, there’s the single marcasite stone at the center, giving a touch of subtle sparkle. Handcrafted in Ireland from sterling silver. Hallmarked at Dublin Castle. A gift for her to be treasured.
