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.
  • Earrings: 1/2"L x 1/4"W x 3/16"D; pierced only.

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.

        There’s more than meets the eye in these delicate chandelier-style pearl earrings, which combine Greek, Buddhist, and Javanese influences. The “shoulder” from which the charms hang is adapted from Greek jewelry of the Hellenic era, about the 3rd to 1st century B.C. The intricate sterling silver patterns are inspired by images of the Buddha’s curled hair found at Bali’s famous Borobudur temple. The gentle sway of the three drops is reminiscent of the way characters move in Java’s ancient wayang kulit shadow puppet theater. A trio of cultured pearls, in pink, black, or white, are the finishing touch.

        Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

        At the foot of Mount Vesuvius, just 10 miles south of Naples, lies the fishing town of Torre del Greco. Long known for their carved shell cameos, Torre del Greco jewelers also work with gold and gems, using time-honored techniques such as lost-wax casting. In lost-wax casting, a jeweler carves his or her design in wax, and then forms a mold around the model. When molten metal is poured into the mold, the wax melts away, leaving a perfect reproduction of the original model.
