The Celtic Jewellery Designs
There are 9 authentic Iona stories within the collection including Meadow of Angels, Dove of Peace, Wonders of Columba and Heart of Love. The designs feature ‘pledging’ commitment rings and modern Iona engagement rings, hoop earrings with patterns of angels, tiny golden doves of peace on white Iona Marble rings, and Celtic torc necklaces featuring Celtic waterbirds flying over carved teardrops of rare Iona green serpentine, long believed to give safe passage over water.
IONA AND THE HISTORY OF ART
Created as a contemporary tribute to the incredible Celtic Art legacy of Iona, this collection is inspired by the Book of Kells, Iona’s medieval stone-carvings, and renowned Celtic metalsmiths Alexander and Euphemia Ritchie who along with Iain MacCormick (Mhairi's relative), created beautiful jewels on Iona from 1890-1970. Their intricate work was loved by frequent Iona visitors including Andrew Carnegie and Charles Rennie Macintosh.
