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.

  • Rhodium-plated sterling silver, to prevent tarnishing.
  • Handcrafted in Ireland.
  • Pendant 5/8"L x 1/4"W x 3/16"D; 18" chain with spring ring clasp.

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.

At age 66, I pierced my ears on my grandson's second birthday, as he was born in June. He is the only child of my daughter and son-in-law who had been married for almost 18 years! Truly a blessing from God!

Liked the design and quality very much and intended to give them as a gift, but sadly had to return the set. Shipping costs are ridiculous for the light weight items.

                  Make your way to Chiang Mai’s famous night bazaar, and you'll find yourself in the midst of a thriving world of quick sales, bright lights, and skilled artistry. Among the stalls selling clothing and DVDs, hundreds of craftspeople display their handmade wares under paper umbrellas and twinkling strings of lights. Drawn by the creative energy of the night market, many artisans keep studios nearby. One such studio is run by three young sisters, whose resemblance is so striking they’re often mistaken for triplets. In their small studio, the sisters designed and crafted this delicate pearl necklace, knotted on waxed linen and reminiscent of so many small birds perched in the branches of a tree.

                  Through the 1700s, the main industry in the seaside town of Torre del Greco had been harvesting coral, or "red gold." When the ruins of nearby Pompeii were excavated, it became a must-see destination with England's elite. Cameos made from the shells harvested by local fishermen were one of the most popular souvenirs to show off one's well-traveled status. This romantic necklace pairs a rustic, hand-carved cameo portrait with a string of cultured pearls.

                  Pearls hold an important place in the mythology and folklore of cultures across the world and throughout time. For the Chinese, they were the tears of dragons fighting in the sky. For Buddhists, pearls are the jewel in the lotus, which grants all desires. This gleaming strand of pearls in shades of pink, gold, lavender, and white can be worn as long necklace or doubled.

                  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.

                  India's 17th-century Mughal rulers were great lovers of pearls, jewels, and gemstones. The rulers of Hyderabad were especially known for their love of pearls of all sizes. Portraits from that era show men and women alike decked in elaborate jewelry from head to toe. Our simplified version of a Mughal pearl necklace is inspired by those portraits, called miniatures. Handcrafted in Jaipur, it features pink and white pearls along with delicate faceted garnet, amethyst, and carnelian.
