The Fionán Pendant is inspired by the beautiful decorated Cross Slab at Kilfountain, on the Dingle Peninsula. The slab is inscribed with the ancient Ogham Alphabet.
The name Ogham is derived from Oghma, the Celtic God of elocution or fine speech. Ogham is an ancient linear script and is the first known written language of Ireland. The Ogham alphabet consists of groups of lines from one to five, set across a vertical stem-line. Each group represents a different letter. It was used mainly for commemorative inscriptions.
A Celtic original by Brian de Staic with an Ogham inscription makes a special gift personal.
This beautiful Fionán Standing Stone pendant is crafted in sterling silver, 9k, 14k and 18k yellow gold and has been Irish hallmarked by the Assay office at Dublin castle. We can engrave the back of it with your name, in the original Ogham script, to personalise it. This unique piece comes with an standard 18 inch chain and comes displayed in a beautiful Brian de Staic display box. An explanatory leaflet on the Ogham Script will be included also.
