Book of Kells Jewelry
Throughout our site you will find thousands of examples of jewelry with traditional Celtic designs; this includes the collection from the Book of Kells. Other prime examples are the warrior Celtic shield wedding bands whose design is inspired from the Ardagh chalice which is another of Ireland's treasured artifacts.
The ancient stone Celtic cross monuments that dotted the Irish landscape are the inspiration for the design found in most of our silver Celtic cross necklaces and our Celtic wall crosses and the tri spiral design found in Co. Meath is the catalyst for the Newgrange jewelry.
It was the ancient druids who espoused that the tree is the source of all life; today that Celtic tradition lives on in the symbolism of the Tree of Life necklaces and Tree of Life earrings.
The Irish jewelry designs are just as evocative when you consider the gold Claddagh rings are based upon a 16th century legend that only grows in popularity throughout the world. The tiny shamrock was revered for its mystical qualities long before St. Patrick used the symbolism of this three leaf clover to explain the concept of the Trinity; today as one of Ireland's national icons, you may find it as splendid silver shamrock necklaces and gold shamrock earrings.
At 600 million years old, the most ancient and possibly most stimulating of all our Irish jewelry is those pieces with Connemara marble which is often referred to as Ireland's gem stone. The Irish Gift House features an extensive collection that includes Connemara marble rings and Connemara marble bracelets. You will also find this iconic green stone accenting necklaces and earrings that are enhanced with various Irish or Celtic designs.
