THE STORY :
Beautiful, rare & elegant simplicity: The natural black gemstone used in this piece is 188 million years old. Complemented with a 14 karat yellow gold Celtic Trinity Knot, this striking piece allows you to wear a very special piece of Ireland. We have named this piece Dúchas (heritage), a concept no one word can describe. A feeling of belonging, good nature.
“An rud is annamh is iontach” - 'The rarest and most wonderful thing' is an old Irish proverb that sums up what our latest collection, Carraig Dubh, is all about.
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. Its innovative and exciting and allows you to wear a miniature work of art.
The story of the Celtic Trinity Knot began centuries ago in the pages of illuminated manuscripts of Irish monasteries. This decorative knot is now a recognized symbol in Irish culture and design with many different interpretations. Among the most popular meanings, Trinity Knot may represent: 'the past, the present and the future', 'abiding love' and 'mind, spirit and body'. It also represents eternity, continuity, no beginning no end. The number 3 is significant in ancient Celtic art, so the trinity knot and Celtic trikel spiral hold so many possible representations that are perfect for meaningful gifts.
