We Irish love to wear Celtic Cross pendants to share our Irish heritage with the world.
These emblems of Ireland and our Christian faith are found all over the island of Ireland. Many are inscribed with Celtic knotwork.

Before I tell you the details of how to enter for a chance to win, let's first take a look at the history of Celtic Crosses in Ireland and the beautiful jewelry stocked by the Irish Gift Company, a wonderful online store.
Jewelry Inspired by Our Celtic Heritage
Celtic crosses are symbols of our Christian faith and are found in cemetries all over the island of Ireland.
The Celtic Cross can be spotted in some of Ireland's most majestic places, highlighting the island's most breathtaking landscapes.
We usually think of Celtic Crosses as existing in Ireland only, but they're found all over the British Isles and even in Brittany in France, which was also a Celtic nation.
Irish immigrants to the United States and Australia have brought their love of the Celtic Cross with them. Many Irish people choose the Celtic Cross as memorials in cemetries all over the world. And many Irish people choose to wear a Celtic Cross necklace as an emblem of their heritage.
The Celtic Cross truly is a beloved symbol of Ireland, often linked to lyrical Irish blessings.
Here is a beautiful blessing from Ireland especially for this day when we celebrate our Irish heritage.
May the Raindrops Fall Lightly On Your Brow
“May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow,
May the soft winds freshen your spirit,
May the sunshine brighten your heart
May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you,
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.”
A Celtic Cross is a wonderful reminder that God enfolds you in the mantle of his love.

The Claddagh is one of the most beloved Irish symbols. It represents love, loyalty and friendship. In this beautiful pendant it's combined with a Celtic Trinity Knot.
It is said that Saint Patrick not only used the shamrock, but also the Celtic Triquetera to convert the Irish to Christianity. The Trinity Knot was used by our patron saint to represent the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Our prize today is a Celtic Cross pendant with a traditional Celtic knotwork embossed design. The winner can choose whether to receive their pendant in a silver or gold finish.
The cross is made from highly polished stainless steel and measures 2 inches. It is presented on a 23 inch chain.

It can be worn by either men or women, but many men find the chain length and size of the pendant appealing.
