The studio that handcrafts this Celtic-inspired jewelry is committed to environmentally and ethically responsible practices both in the creation of their designs and the day-to-day work of running a design studio. Mining gold, silver, and gemstones can be extremely damaging to the earth, and is often associated with exploitative labor practices. By using 100% recycled metals in their designs, they can honor the age-old appreciation for these precious materials while seriously reducing their impact on the earth.


These pieces represent one of the best known Celtic motifs, the trinity. In Celtic lore it represents the three stages of a woman's life, mother, maiden, and wise old woman. Part of many cultures and mythologies, including the Christian trinity, it is a universal symbol whether representing the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, or broader concepts of past, present, and future. Handcrafted by jewelers in Bali using 100% recycled 18-k gold-plated sterling silver along with natural pyramid-faceted garnet.


The 18" snake chain is made in Italy. Pendant: 1/4"W x 3/4"L x 1/8"D.

The trinity knot is an archetypal design that, for many people, helps them connect to their tribal roots—be that an Irish or Scottish family background, spiritual beliefs both Christian and pagan, or simply a desire to connect with the world on an instinctual level.


This piece is created starting with the lost-wax casting technique. The design is carved by hand into a block of wax, around which a mold is formed. When the mold is fired, the wax melts away, leaving only the material for future casting in sterling silver. Next the bezel is cut and a pyramid-faceted gemstone is set, point side up. Last, the sterling silver is plated with 18k gold, giving a two-tone effect.

The Celtic knot, or triquetra, that frames this sparkling necklace dates back to the 6th-century, when art from Ireland and the British Isles developed into a style that was unique from the rest of Europe. Illuminated manuscripts like the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Book of Durrow, and the Book of Kells are full of illustrations featuring complex knotwork. In Celtic and Pagan traditions, the triquetra symbolizes earth, sun, and sky, or the stages of a woman’s life: young woman, mother, and grandmother. In Christian tradition, it is a symbol of the holy trinity.

Roman emperors commissioned thousands of different designs and denominations of coins and people from Britain to Spain to Syria still turn up Roman coins while plowing their fields and digging in their gardens. For collectors, there's nothing more satisfying than pinpointing when an ancient bronze coin was first minted.

Several emperors used this title, but it's most often found on coins minted by the first-century emperor Trajan.

In the heart of Dublin, designers at a family-owned jewelry studio draw on the backdrop of their ancient city, founded in the 8th century, to create classic designs that incorporate classic Celtic motifs. These sterling silver and freshwater pearl accents feature a classic Celtic trinity knot, also called the triquetra. Found in ancient Celtic texts like the Book of Kells, it has also become a symbol of the Christian holy trinity. In Celtic tradition, it symbolizes strength and unity—the knot itself has no beginning or end. It can represent past, present, and future, or the stages of a woman's life according to Celtic lore: young woman, mother, and grandmother.

The intricate Celtic cross—often decorated with elaborate trinity knots and scrollwork—may have first been used by St. Patrick as a symbol to convert Druids in Ireland. Combining the Christian cross with monuments that represented more earthly spirituality such as the sun and moon and tree of life would have linked pagan and Christian beliefs and helped the saint deliver his message throughout Ireland. Today many people are drawn to the design more as an expression of Irish or Scottish family ties than as a religious symbol.
