Details

Ireland's "forty shades of green" are reflected in Connemara marble, a rich green stone found only in western Ireland and dating back more than 900 million years to the Precambrian era. In this handcrafted necklace, deep green Connemara marble peeks out from behind a sterling silver hawthorn tree--widely known as the preferred home of the fairy folk.

Fairies are an important part of Irish lore, and even those who are skeptical about the existence of "the wee folk" will err on the side of not disturbing them. Centuries of fables have warned about the misfortune that befalls anyone foolhardy enough to disturb the home of these bad-tempered creatures. Farmers will plow a wide circle around a solitary tree, and in 1999 a major highway in County Clare was rerouted to avoid disturbing a hawthorn tree after local storytellers stirred up local superstitions. Whatever the truth of the fairies and the hawthorn tree, this iconic necklace brings a connection to both the land and the lore of the Emerald Isle and makes a perfect gift for just about anyone.

"Poor quality "

The picture is bigger than the actual item, poor quality sterling casting that looks like a blob of silver. If I could give it 0 stars that would have been my choice. Not Novica’s usual great quality.

"Nice but small"

The picture gives the illusion of a much larger pendant. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions. Would be more honest to show the necklace on a model for effect. The tree appears to be in greater relief to its background than is actually the case in reality. Not worth $55 but too much of a hassle to return

"Too Late"

The product is very nice and my wife loves it for casual/everyday wear. I have no issues with the product or the craftsmanship of the item.
