The ogham alphabet is the earliest form of Irish writing. The characters consist of a series of lines and notches scored across a long stem. It was usually read from bottom to top. It is named after the warrior Ogma, God of Eloquence and Literature. There are over 350 Ogham stones still standing in Ireland. Boru has created a unique range of Ogham jewellery translating traditional Irish love quotes into this ancient alphabet.
The Anam Cara design is Boru Jewelry’s signature brand, originally designed in the mid '90's, it is still a firm favourite worldwide. In Celtic tradition it is believed that when you connect with that special other person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your Anam Cara or "soul mate".
