Since the fifth century, Irish artisans have crafted stunning examples of jewelry, and other metalwork, that reference some common symbols of Irish and Celtic history. Intricate knot work, spirals and whorls, Celtic Crosses, and Shamrocks, have all been used to illustrate the love of God, and fellow man, that is so much a part of the Irish Celtic tradition.
In centuries past, early-Medieval, Irish artisans were world-renowned for their incredible work with precious metals: today, jewelry designers and artisans rely on the same, time-honored techniques, making modern Irish Celtic jewelry designs sought after throughout the world. By borrowing from the past, modern jewelry designs have a timeless, heirloom quality that will remain treasured for generations to come.
