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, these iconic earrings bring a connection to both the land and the lore of the Emerald Isle and make a perfect gift for just about anyone.

"Great Product"

Gorgeous! The marble comes from an area in Ireland where my father grew up. They arrived in good condition and I will cherish them. I thought they would be larger but that was my error. Very pleased with product.
