Celtic knotwork is very closely associated with Ireland. Irish monks during the 8th century used it to great effect in illuminated manuscripts like ‘The Book of Kells’. This form of Irish art was called insular art. The term derives from ‘insula’, the Latin term for “island”.
It has also been used to in silver and gold work dating back 1300 years. The combination of Celtic knotwork and Connemara marble celebrates two iconic products of Ireland
Each stone is unique, just like the landscape it has come from
All our jewellery is delivered in a specially made tin to keep it safe. It comes wrapped in 100% Irish tweed woven by Kerry Woolen Mills.
Connemara Marble is referred to as Irelands gemstone and wearing it insures you will literally carry a piece of Ireland with you
