The Celts first arrived in Ireland 2,500 years ago from Europe, bringing with them a wealth of art and culture. Their legacy lives on today in the Irish Hallmarked Sterling Silver Celtic Jewellery Range from Kilkenny Silver.

The cross is named for the Christian saint Brigid of Kildare.

Brigid's cross is typically woven on 1 February, her feast day, as well as the festival of Imbolc in pre-Christian Ireland. Hanging Brigid's cross from the rafters of one's house was believed to bring the blessing and protection of the saint for the remainder of the year.
