THE STORY :
About the Carraig Dubh Collection - Beautiful, rare & elegant simplicity. The cross shaped natural black gemstone used in this piece is 188 million years old. Each piece of this collection is crafted with this special stone and 14 karat yellow gold. The creative journey from rough stone to a polished smooth gemstone is a highly skilled labour of love, and patience, using age-old local knowledge and traditional techniques. Your piece is crafted in our studio on the shores of Dingle bay and is hallmarked in Dublin Castle, stamped with our maker's mark, BdeS.
Brian de Staic combines two of his passions in this cross pendant design- His lifetime’s love of Dingle's spectacular monastic site, Kilmalkedar, and the beauty of Carraig Dubh. The design is inspired by the early, simple stone cross at Kilmalkedar. Like the inspiration, this cross is carved from a single stone and offers the wearer the same sense of protection and healing. Wear an ancient piece of Ireland with this innovative and exciting new collection.
Your BdeS original Carraig Dubh is presented in our luxurious black signature box. All Carraig Dubh Collection pieces will include a personal note signed by the master jeweller, Brian de Staic.
