The Celtic Warrior Pendants are based upon the Ardagh Chalice, one of the finest pieces of eighth century metalwork ever discovered. Its beauty is on a par with a Book of Kells.
The Chalice is assembled from 354 individual pieces, and is currently on display at the National Museum of Ireland. It was found by two boys digging in a field in 1868.
It is the gold filigree band that encircles the Chalice that inspired this beautiful Celtic Warrior Jewelry. The band is composed of shield decorations and Celtic artwork. These same ancient decorations are repeated on these beautiful pieces of Celtic Warrior jewelry.
The Celtic Warrior jewelry range has been chosen by the Irish Government as gifts to present to Foreign Dignitaries. These are truly examples of Irish craftsmanship at its best.
