Irish Jewellery This piece is inspired by the triple spiral design on the famous Newgrange entrance stone in Ireland. This spiral design is probably the most famous Irish design from the pre-Christian period. The ancient Irish knew that the sun makes a spiral shape every three months in its travels.

This design is an artistic representation of ancient Celtic belief systems and values.
