A thing of beauty and power, this St. Brigid’s cross. Beautiful because Boru Jewelry’s take on the classic Irish symbol, traditionally woven from rushes or straw, is rendered here in lustrous sterling silver. Powerful because a St. Brigid’s cross is thought to provide protection and blessings to a home or to the person wearing it. A beautiful thing indeed.

Did You Know? St. Brigid's crosses are associated with Brigid of Kildare, one of the most important female patron saints of Ireland. The crosses are traditionally made on St. Brigid's Day, celebrated on February 1. A St. Brigid’s cross consists of a central square with four arms tied at the end, one extending from each corner of the square in the opposite direction..
