St. Matthew's cross is an ancient Celtic cross that stood near an abbey in Iona, Ireland. St. Matthew's cross was one of four ancient high crosses that marked the area, along with the crosses dedicated to St. Martin, St. John, and St. Oran. These crosses are thought to have marked the site of an ancient church, or perhaps they served as markers for pilgrims traveling to religious sites in the area. This lovely sterling silver St. Matthew's cross necklace is a replica of this ancient Celtic Cross which has become a treasured piece of Celtic Christian history.
