```Here's one way (assuming Mathematica 9). I omit the "[i]" part so as not
to further obscure my code; you may readily insert it. And I chance
upper-case C to lower-case c (it's best to avoid at least those
upper-case letters that have built-in meaning).

topIndices =
Select[Flatten[Outer[List, Range[6], Range[6]], 1],
First@# <= Last@# &];

pattern = {k_, j_} -> Rule[{k, j}, Subscript[c, k, j]];

mat = Normal@
SymmetrizedArray[topIndices /. pattern, {6, 6}, Symmetric[{2, 1}]]

SymmetricMatrixQ[mat]
(* True *)
