  • Product Description

    Made in Ireland, our elegant Brigid's cross pendant takes a que from the ancient Celtic symbol of protection. 14-karat plated gold makes up the four square patches of braid at the center. From each a silver arm extends forming the complete cross. 


    The meaning of St. Brigid's cross...
    One of the patron saints of Ireland, St. Brigid's cross (Irish: Cros Bríde, Crosóg Bríde or Bogha Bríde)is said to protect people and households from fire and evil; thus, it is often found in Irish and Irish-American kitchens.  


    Brigid was the Celtic / Gaelic goddess of fertility, healing, poetry and smithing. Saint Brigid (or Brigit) is thought to be a Christianization of the goddess.


    (St.) Brigid has her own holiday celebrated by modern Pagans and Christians alike. Named Imbolc (or Imbolg) as well as Brigid's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Bríde, Scottish Gaelic: Là Fhèill Brìghde, Manx: Laa'l Breeshey, and aka Candlemass), has been widely observed throughout Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man for centuries.


    Ancient Imbolc customs included the making of Brigid's Crosses from straw, grass or reeds. A large doll-like figure of Brigid, called the Brídeóg, was also made and paraded from house to house to symbolize the goddess/saint herself visiting to dispense blessings -- especially protection for homes and livestock. In return, folk would prepare a bed for Brigid and leave out food and drink for her. Items of clothing would also be left outside for her to bless. Certain water wells, held to be sacred to Brigid, would be visited with offerings such as the straw crosses.
