Mother & Child Heart-shaped pendant
This sterling silver Mother & Child pendant forms a lovely heart shape symbolising love of family and is a lovely gift for or from a mother. The faces are textured slightly to provide a contrast with the high polish finish on the surrounding heart. This piece is set with a 2mm emerald at the base of the heart and is engraved with a special date at the back.
The piece measures approx 22mm in height and 16mm across and comes on an 18 inch sterling silver snake chain.
The pendants are hallmarked – 925 sterling silver – in the Assay Office at Dublin Castle.
Tracy was educated through the Irish language and her love of Ireland’s heritage is central to this collection. Her designs often feature an innovative use of light inspired by the prehistoric monument at Newgrange, Co. Meath in Ireland that was constructed between 3000 and 2500 BC. It is aligned with the rising sun and once a year, on the Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year), light floods the chamber of Newgrange to spectacular effect. Newgrange also showcases some wonderful early artwork with Celtic Spirals etched into large rocks at the front of the monument. These pieces attempt to capture the magic and importance of Newgrange as a national Irish treasure.
