CLADDAGH Earrings Irish Cork Red Marble
These very Irish earrings feature a detailed claddagh, a very old symbol of love and fidelity. Its pattern of 2 hands cradling a crowned heart goes back to the Medieval times, and is possibly even older than that.
These are very lightweight brass stampings, which helps both to keep the earrings affordable, and light weight on the ear. They are accented with a classically Irish gemstone: red (actually an earthy clay-pink) Cork marble, found only in the West of Ireland and becoming quite difficult to find anymore. The beads are hand-drilled, as all marble must be, and measure 8mm. They hang from 14kt. gold-filled French hook wires, and measure 1.5" long.
County Cork is the legendary birthplace of the ancient Celtic Goddess of Love: Cliodna of the Waves. The combination of the marble native to her birthplace, and the Irish claddagh symbol of love, seemed perfect together. The last scan is the harbor of Glandore in Cork, where Cliodna was said to have been swept out on a magic wave by Manannan, the Sea God who fell in love with her.
The French hook earwires and the jewelry wire is 14kt. gold-filled. The claddagh pendants are brass. The Irish Cork marble is genuine. I have a similar pair in green Connemara marble, also in my store.
