Next to St. Patrick, St. Brigid is the most popular saint and is a patron saint of Ireland. She is known for her charity and work with the poor. The Solvar Company in Dublin has created the cross of St. Brigid to allow people to experience this part of the rich legacy found in the Irish culture. The cross is made of sterling silver and marcasite crystals, measures 1 inch in diameter and comes on an 18 inch silver chain.

Marcasite crystals are found along the branches of the cross and the green/gold crystals give a sparkly look to the pendant. The contrast between the crystals and the silver is reminiscent of the jewelry preferred during the Victorian era where the two different elements added drama and glitter to the jewelry. One of the legends of St. Brigid that explains the origins of her cross tells the story of how she explained the passion of the cross to a dying man by using rushes strewn across the floor. Her cross is often found in Irish homes or on doors to protect the family living inside from want and evil. The Brigid cross pendant would be a lovely gift to give someone named Brigid or to any special Irish lady. The pendant comes boxed.
