Quick Overview

Our Large Cross of Cong Necklace is a bold and magnificent beauty. This Irish Christian cross, known as the Cross of Cong, is a highlight of craftsmanship from a time when Ireland was ruled by Kings and religious artifacts were prized and revered.


The Cong Cross is an abbreviation for the Cong Cross. When a relic of the True Cross arrived in Ireland in 1123, it was enshrined in the Cross of Cong.
The name of the cross on which Jesus was crucified is the True Cross. The Cross of Cong (Irish: An Bacall Bu, "the yellow baculum") is an early 12th-century Irish Christian ornamented cusped processional cross made for Tairrdelbach Ua Conchobair (d. 1156), King of Connacht and High King of Ireland, to donate to the Cathedral church of the time.

  • The Large Cong Cross is sterling silver. 
  • Measures approximately 42mm x 28mm 
  • Comes on your choice of sterling silver chain size. 
  • Handcrafted in Ireland
