These gorgeous Celtic Warrior Shield earrings are the perfect accessory for any Irish wardrobe! Would make a wonderful Irish jewelry gift for that strong Irish woman in your like who is befitting of the title Celtic Warrior.
These Celtic Warrior earrings are inspired by the designs found on the Ardagh Chalice, which was discovered buried in a field by two boys harvesting potatoes in 1868. Although the value and importance of the Chalice was unclear at that time, it is now (thankfully) recognized as one of the most spectacular pieces of 8th century metalwork ever discovered. It currently resides at the National Museum of Ireland.
Each of these Irish earrings is presented with a diamond shape, and is handcrafted from sterling silver in Dublin, Ireland. To give the two-tone look and contrast, the shield is made from 18K gold. Before being sent to you, it is required under Irish law that each one be submitted to the Assay Office at Dublin Castle for inspection and hallmarking. This has been a requirement under Irish law since 1637. Should any piece of jewelry not pass this verification it is smashed and returned to the manufacturer. The hallmark therefore, serves as an assurance of quality and authenticity.
These Celtic earrings are presented in a luxurious two-piece presentation box. This makes giving the gift of fine Irish jewelry ever so simple! Gift wrap is also available upon request.
