Win This Pendant

What does the Celtic Cross mean to you?


We asked many of you to share with us what the Celtic Cross means to you, for a chance to win this Columba’s Cross Pendant. We received so many heartfelt entries, it was definitely hard to choose a winner, and we thank everyone so much for participating.


Winner: Robert Trig Ashby

"This is the center of creation. Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. North, South, East, and West. The eternal binding of the tri-knots moving in a Perpetual circle towards the center of all things and yet...sending us into the vastness of the warm currents of forever. In this way we're bound together. This equal-limbed cross of nature is indeed all of us."

Runners Up:

Tim Forbes: "The Celtic Cross has many meanings. I have one tatooed on my arm (I designed it) that has the "forever knot" inside it. It represents my faith to my clan (family), my land (Scottish by heritage), and my God (Christian by birth and by choice). This particular piece of jewelry is a beauty! The purple stone in the center could represent many things, but I am drawn to the knotwork around it! Each arm of the cross is two triad knots intertwined to become one. Excellent imagery! Each tri-knot representing a Christian (the Trinity in man), entwined with their soul mate...then four pairs come together to form a community. I love the deep symbolism tied up (pardon the pun!) in the simple yet complex beauty of the Scottish Knotwork! This is gorgeous!"

Kristin Deveraux: "Everlasting love... And all the sincere attributes that protect its path! Love, Loyalty, Infinity, Faith."

Diann Dittemore Peterson: "The Celtic Cross reminds me that my ancient ancestors were an extremely advanced people and civilization, developing the most accurate measuring devise to date. Using the Celtic Cross for navigating the greatest oceans to using the miraculous tool to design the Great Pyramids, the moon, sun and stars and everything in between and all around the world. They make me proud to have been born of such magnificence that to me, seems like an incredible feat so very long ago."

Suellen T. Sciarappa Cirelli: "Spirit centered, the Celtic Cross shows the knots of strength that the Irish bring to the 4 corners of the earth through the diaspora, and the strength we draw from the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water. The Irish draw from the wealth of their history, faith and family. The Cross celebrates the Rising--in all its meanings."

Mary Sinclair: "The Celtic cross design reflects the lives, faith and endurance of our Celtic ancestors, and the intertwined lines represent the journey of life, the pilgrimage of faith, and the inter-connectedness of all people, with God and oneness at the center."

This means a reminder of my Grandfather who at the age of 13 went to sea for years during the great potato famine of Ireland, I can still hear him telling me how his Mother and Father went to the docks with him and how his Mother sang Danny Boy as he boarded, he came to America after years at sea he was a high rigger, his Father went on to serve in Her Majesty Navy working to the position of Admiral, my Grandfather worked as a high rigger, he and his friend jumped ship in San Francisco Bay and swam to shore. This cross reminds me of how coming from proverty how the sacrifices made and the hard work at the age of 13 made him a Great Man, a wonderful husband and Father and grandfather, Irish Blood runs through my veins and what he taught me and told me made me strong to Never Forget, and God will always make a way if you do your part.
God Bless my Grandpa Archie. My Angel who is always with me.

The Celtic Cross is the mixture of Celtic beliefs with the Holy Trinity, and was St. Patrick’s way to convert the Celts to Christianity without taking away their own beliefs.

Graceful in silver, and elegant in design, a symbol of faith that has transcended the years. A sign of celtic heritage that speaks to so many.

I love the intertwined triquetra knot. The triquetra is one of my favorites of the celtic knot designs. And with the amethyst in it, it would be a symbol of my celtic heritage, my spiritual beliefs and favorite stone.
The artist has really drawn my interest,and a feeling of peace and love with this piece.
