Celtic Cross

A celtic cross is a symbol that combines the cross with a ring surrounding the intersection. It is the characteristic symbol of Celtic Christianity, though the symbol actually has older pre-Christian pagan origins.

It is also referred to as the Irish Cross or the Cross of Iona

 

Connemara Marble

Connemara is a large peninsula in the west of County Galway. It is one of the last remaining Irish/Gaelic speaking parts of Ireland. The famous green and white Connamara marble, famed for its beauty, its color and its, was formed more than 700 million years ago.

The marble is mined from deep under the 12 Bens Mountains. In ancient times, the beautiful Connemara marble was used for trading and barter. In more recent times Connemara marble was often used in the construction of granda and stateley buildings.

However in current times, Connemara Marble has become synonymous with fine quality jewellery. It enhances jewellery and is becoming more and more popular.

No two piecies of Connemara marble are identical so you are buying a totally unique piece of jewellery.
