Description

Our Solstice Earrings with Swirls and 18k Gold Bead are inspired by the Winter Solstice. The Winter Solstice is a Celtic celebration of the shortest day, and longest night, of the year. It is thought to be a period of quiet energy.

This can allow you to take the chance to reflect on yourself and focus on what you want to achieve.

The Winter Solstice is also a time to set goals and intentions for the coming year, examine and release your past and to make positive personal changes.

Newgrange passage tomb is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for one. It predates both the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and Stonehenge in Britain.

Every year, many people travel to Newgrange, Co. Meath to view the Winter Solstice through the Newgrange passage tomb. The light from the rising sun, if visible, lights up the inner chamber of the 5,000-year-old passage tomb.  The Newgrange passage tomb was built was built around 3200 BC, during the Neolithic period, making it older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids.

The passage grave at Newgrange has stood for 5,000 years and is older even than the Great Pyramids. As the sun rises on the shortest day of the year, a ray of light breaks through a narrow slot at the entrance, illuminating the central chamber at the end of a sixty-foot-long tunnel.

What happens there every year is described as a miracle.

On the 21st of December 1967, Professor O’Kelly rediscovered the winter solstice phenomenon in Newgrange. It was the first winter solstice witnessed at Newgrange by anyone in over 5,000 years.
