Solstice Twisted Trinity Pendant 18k Gold Bead

The Winter Solstice festival is a Celtic festival commemorating the shortest day and longest night of the year. It was our inspiration for the Solstice Twisted Trinity Pendant 18k Gold Bead because it is said to be a time that brings much peace and calming energy. 

Moreover, what happens there each year, at the Newgrange’s passage, is described as a miracle. Newgrange’s passage grave is 5,000 years old, making it older than the Great Pyramids. During the winter solstice, a beam of light breaks through a narrow gap at the entrance as the sun rises on the year’s shortest day, illuminating the central chamber at the end of a sixty-foot-long tunnel.

The Winter Solstice is also an excellent time to set goals and intentions for the coming season, reflect on your actions, let go of the past, and make positive changes in your life. 

➽ Discover this beautiful Twisted Trinity pendant in silver, as it is obvious why it would make a great gift for a mother of the bride, whether she has Irish roots or not. 

Arian Mother of Pearl Celtic Knot Pendant

The Arian Mother of Pearl Celtic Knot Pendant is a mesmerizing piece of jewelry with a set of matching earrings. The Celtic mythology figure, Arianrhod, inspired the design of this unique pendant. 

Arianrhod was a goddess who ruled over the moon and the stars. She is the Celtic goddess of “fertility, rebirth, and the intertwining of cosmic time and destiny.” The name “Arianrhod” comes from the Welsh words Arian, meaning “silver,” and Rhod, meaning “wheel.”

Her name translates to “silver wheel,” a sign representing the ever-turning wheel of the year and our own annual journey. Since they make such wonderful gifts for the mother of the groom or bride with Irish roots, you will see more of our Arianrhod Celtic collection soon.

Celtic Knot designs come in many different shapes and sizes, and they are deeply rooted in Irish culture. You will find Celtic knot designs in abundance in early Christian texts such as the Book of Kells, which dates back to the eighth century. 

These Celtic Knots were often used to embellish initial letters or the hair of apostles. They also enhance magnificent ancient artifacts like the Ardagh Chalice.

Celtic Knots are continuous loops with no beginning or end. They could be considered a symbol of eternity in terms of devotion, faith, friendship, or love. They also represent the eternal nature of love, the cycle of life, and the ever-changing seasons. 

This Interlaced Celtic pattern bangle symbolizes the interconnectedness of life and our role in the universe.

Trinity & Diamond Teardrop Pendant

The Sterling Silver Trinity & Diamond Teardrop Pendant is an exceptional piece of jewelry that can be made with sterling silver, and 10kt rose gold. The Celtic symbol of the goddess Odin, the Triquetra, predates Christianity.

The symbol is found on Celtic crosses and Celtic stones throughout Ireland and in illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells.

The Celts considered the number three to be a good luck charm and associated it with many things, including mind, body and spirit, earth, ocean and sky, and beginning, middle, and end – eternity.

The Trinity knot embodies this number and bears a strong resemblance to the Valknut, a sign associated with Odin. In Norse mythology, Odin was a revered god. Moreover, the Celtic trinity is the most famous knot in the Celtic world. 

➽ Order the Trinity & Diamond Teardrop Pendant for your mother-in-law, with the confidence that she will be happy to receive it from you.

Dancing Stone Silver Pendant

Boru’s Damhsa – Dancing Stone collection includes this magnificent Dancing Stone silver pendant. The stone in the center truly ‘dances’ with movement, glittering and shimmering. The top of this Celtic pendant features a Celtic Trinity knot as well as the classic Irish Claddagh symbol. 

Christianity adopted the Holy Trinity symbol from ancient Celtic art. This involves the Holy Spirit, the Father, and the Son. For the Celts, however, the emblem had many other meanings. 

It encompassed the mind, body, and spirit as well as the land, sea, and sky, and the beginning, middle, and end. Consequently, it represents continuity as well as all life, death, and rebirth. 

It’s easy to see why the Boru dancing stone silver pendant can be the ideal wedding gift for any mother of the bride.

➽ What better way to celebrate a happy day like a wedding ceremony than choosing a dancing stone silver pendant as a gift? 

Claddagh Pendant with Gold Heart

A Celtic knotwork runs along a circle with a Claddagh sign at the bottom of this Claddagh pendant with a Gold Heart. The Claddagh Heart is made entirely of solid 10K gold. This pendant represents love, family, and the crown’s allegiance.

The Claddagh Ring is a 17th-century Irish ring that originated in the small fishing community of Claddagh in County Galway. Legend has it that Richard Joyce, a native of Galway, was kidnapped and sold into slavery in North Africa.

He was eventually freed after 14 years on the orders of William III. His employer, a goldsmith, was so pleased with his work that he offered him his daughter’s hand and half of his land to persuade him to stay. Joyce declined the offer, however, and returned to Galway, where his sweetheart welcomed him.

This Claddagh pendant with Gold Heart would also go well with Boru’s matching Claddagh Ring with Gold Heart and Claddagh Earrings with Gold Heart. 

➽ Whether you choose to buy the whole set or just one piece, the Claddagh pendant makes an excellent gift for your mother-in-law, bringing a bit of Irish heritage to any occasion!
