Necklaces & Pendants
This pendant is made of sterling silver. The pendant is designed with a Celtic cross which is known as Ahenny Cross. Many scholars think that the Ahenny crosses were carved at an early date, perhaps in the 8th Century. The faces of the cross have no scriptural carvings but are most beutifully decorated. At the centre of the cross are five projecting bosses, reminding us of St.Martin's cross in Iona, again raising the question about the importance of Ahenny in the past. All over the head and shaft of the cross are elaborate designs, spiral and interface and fret. This cross is 3.2cm in height and 1.6cm wide.
