The Celtic Jewelry Difference
The Celtic culture honored the earth as a divine being, and the knots themselves symbolize interconnectedness. We share in the perspective that we are all mysteriously brought together as one big human family, which is part of a greater web of life. This ethos is in our work.
We are designer jewelers working with Celtic motifs, producing the most exciting contemporary Celtic design in the world. Hundreds of designs that you will not be able to find anywhere else. We are not merely reproducing designs, but creating new styles that have Celtic roots with modern sensibility.
Everything we produce is made with 100% recycled metal. The gold or silver off one piece of jewelry can cause tons of toxic sludge. We believe that making jewelry that is not recycled is destructive to the environment and against the Celtic way of being.
Our unique fabrication techniques allow us to create exceptionally beautiful Celtic knot work. Most designers are working from wax carvings, but we start with precious metal sheets and wire which are cut, formed and stamped on anvils and cottonwood stumps. The antiqued silver background provides a natural background to our solid 14K or 18K gold overlay. Our techniques are rooted in a southwestern jewelry tradition which is hundreds of years old.
We have been in business since 1995 and we have a AAA with the Better Business Bureau. We have tens of thousands of satisfied customers, and our website is 100% secure. You call your order in on our toll free number, 888-733-5238.
