Céile Dé Prayer Beads - Iona Cross

Back to Main Paidirean Page

This cross design is based upon an ancient caved rock, known as St Columba's pillow, that was found on the sacred Isle of Iona. The silver cross was cast from the original mould created by the legendary Iona Silversmith, Alexander Ritchie; and passed down through successive generations of his family line. They are only available through our little shop and AosDana Silversmiths on Iona, where the family tradition of excellent Silversmithcraft continues today. The antique-finished cross is hand-made on Iona and bears a unique Iona hallmark.
