Irish Lace Celtic Earrings
These new Irish Lace Celtic Earrings are a welcome addition to our fine Irish jewelry collection. The delicate pendants showcase some of the finest Irish silversmithing available. The center of the silver lace disks each showcases a Celtic knot – one of the oldest and most iconic Celtic symbols of eternity. Irish Lace Celtic Earrings are inspired by stunning Victorian laces made by Irish women and are a beautiful way to wear your heritage. These earrings also feature Swarovski crystals on the detailed lace edge designs.
The Celtic Knot is a Celtic symbol that symbolizes a wide variety of things in ancient Celtic artwork. The knots seen here are soft rounded Celtic knots with no beginning, no end; simply four loops connected forever. Various sources suggest that the four-cornered Celtic knot design was created as a symbol of protection (reaching to the deities of the four seasons), as a symbol of living within eternity (as the knots have no beginning or end and are enclosed within a circle), representing the four Gospels in the Book of Kells, or honoring the four seasons.
Irish lace craft dates back to hundreds of years before Queen Victoria made lace a style trend. Various regions in Ireland even developed their own unique lacework styles. Lacemaking was an important way that an Irish woman could help support her family and create a handmade Irish treasure.
The intricate sterling silver details create a beautiful and dynamic look to these Irish lace earrings.
