Traditional Irish Sterling Silver Jewellery Origins
Since at least 2000BC sterling silver and 9ct gold has been used to make celtic jewellery. They were so beautiful and coveted that they were highly prized all over the world.
The celtic cross represents the bridge between heaven and earth while the arms are for the four elements, fire, earth, air and water.
Claddagh jewellery originated from a little village outside Galway and was designed to show love for the Irish people and country. The heart represents love, the hands friendship and the crown loyalty.
The trinity knot represented the three moon or sun phases with the surrounding circle meaning protection.
Celtic and claddagh jewellery remain as popular today, with the addition of cubic zirconia and green stones, it now has a modern twist and sparkle to add to the centuries of myths.
