Celtic cross pendants are very popular in Irish jewelry design as the Celtic cross has a deep cultural tie with Irish history and folklore. In Ireland, this ancient symbol of worship dates back to around the middle ages. The pendant takes its shape from ancient lifesize monuments which can stand up to 217 inches high that remain standing to this day, largely on monastic sites in Ireland. 

St. Bute was instrumental in bringing the Celtic cross into being by combining the Christian cross with the circular disc representing the pagan moon. This played a huge role in converting the largely pagan Irish population into the Christian faith with the help of St Patrick. 

By combining symbolism from the pagan faith into the Christian symbol of the cross the Irish Pagans were more comfortable with the transition to Christianity.
