The Iconic De Staic Family Jewelry Business: A Story of Quality and Elegance

Brian and Máiréad founded their now-well known family jewelry business in the Dingle Gaeltacht in 1981. Their collection of one-of-a-kind miniature works of art, featuring quality and elegance, has attracted thousands of customers and garnered numerous awards and accolades worldwide.

Brian and Máiréad’s commitment and creativity is the driving force behind the BdeS, with creations inspired by Ireland's rich archaeological heritage and the beauty of the Dingle Peninsula.

It all started with a bench, hand tools, saws, files, a polishing machine, and a shared vision to create his stunning designs.

1986 BdeS moved his workshop into Ceardlann na Coille. The Green Street shop was extended and Brian de Staic employed his first shop assistant. Shortly afterwards Brian de Staic started training his first apprentice jeweller.
