The tradition and meaning of St Brigid’s Cross
Before we tell you more about some of the amazing St Brigid’s Cross jewellery pieces we have for sale, such as our St Brigid’s Cross necklace range, we need to explain the tradition and meaning behind St Brigid’s Cross. Also known as Mary of the Gawl, St Brigid is a patroness and abbess of Ireland. She is also the founder of the first Irish monastery, which is located in County Kildare. Born in 450 AD in Dundalk, St Brigid is regarded as the creator of this unique cross, which features her name. The cross is typically hand-created using rushes, yet straw is also used on occasion. Of course, we have decided to use precious metals and other majestic materials to create stunning jewellery pieces featuring St Brigid’s Cross.
The meaning behind St Brigid’s Cross is multi-layered. Not only is it an Irish Christian symbol, but it has plenty of other important meanings as well. It could have roots within the pagan sun wheel, which is supposed to bless the earth with life and fertility. Generally, though, St Brigid’s Cross is used for protecting your home and driving away hunger, fire, and evil. This makes it a beautiful piece to wear around your neck or to gift to someone else so that they will always be protected.
