Wood Quay Heart Pendant with 18kt Gold Beading
History: One Thousand years Ago the Vikings raided and plundered Irish Monastries and Churches for their gold and silver.
The Vikings were driven out of Ireland one thousand years ago by Brian Boru but much of their heritage remained. Many of their artifacts have been uncovered during excavations at Wood Quay in Dublin. These magnificent pieces of jewellery have inspired us to create the Wood Quay Collection.
Oxidised Sterling Silver Finish with 18kt Gold Beading
The Celtic Warrior design originated from the Ardagh Chalice, Ireland's foremost treasure, which was discovered in 1868 by two men digging in a ring fort in Ardagh, Co. Limerick, Ireland.
The chalice is the finest example of eighth century metalwork ever to be discovered and is now housed in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.
