The Celts used a variety of materials and designs in their jewelry. The most commonly used were gold, silver, enamel and bronze. However, rarer materials like coral and tin were also in use. An alloy of gold and silver called ‘electrum’ was used in jewelry worn by chieftains and warriors. They also used stones like amethyst, turquoise, jade and lapis lazuli. Most stones had specific meanings attached to them and radiated healing energies, which the Celts used extensively.
All our designs are inspired by ancient Celtic jewelry and are rooted in Celtic cultures and beliefs. We offer a wide selection of products – including necklaces and earrings in multiple designs. Many of these incorporate Celtic symbols like the Tree of Life, Ogham, Claddagh and the Trinity Knot. Gold shamrock necklaces and earrings are also a popular product in our inventory. You can also buy romantic accessories for the special someone in the Mo Anam Cara Collection.
Most Celtic jewelry comes from the Iron Age in Europe. It refers to a specific style of jewelry designed and worn by the Celtic peoples in Ireland, originating in Switzerland. It is believed to have been developed between 2000 BC – 550 AD. You might know Celtic jewelry for its crosses and the ‘Tree of Life’, but it is much more than that. Designs from this period are usually geometric patterns and are wrought in metals like gold, silver, and bronze.
A variety of symbols can be found in Celtic jewelry. While it is often deeply symbolic in different ways, Celtic jewelry foremost signifies an attachment and reverence to an ancient civilization. One can find popular symbols like the ‘Tree of Life’, ‘Triskele’, ‘Trinity Knot’ and ‘Claddagh’ and ‘Shamrock’ in jewelry from this time. Symbols have specific meaning, but they represent healing, harmony, balance of life and strength. Celtic jewelry pays homage to the close and reciprocate relationship between nature and humanity, and heaven and earth.
