Spirit of Ireland

By: Inspired By Ireland  05/12/2011

Martina Hamilton is one of Irelands leading producers of contemporary Irish Jewelry. For over 20 years her award winning international brands, Spirit of Ireland, The Martina Hamilton Collection and The Cat and The Moon have been designed and handcrafted by her team of master goldsmiths in Sligo, Ireland.

Spirit of Ireland is a collection of Sterling Silver jewelry forged from the cultural symbolism of Martina’s native country that dates back over 6000 years. These designs are infused with motifs from Irelands Megalithic & bronze age heritage from the merging and colliding epochs of its pre Celtic, Celtic and early Christian cultures.

Distinctive symbols such as the Newgrange Spiral, the Shamrock and the Wild Irish Rose are re-imagined and forged anew, to embody contemporary relevance and cultural significance for this generation and beyond. Each heirloom quality piece is hallmarked under the stringent quality conditions of the Assay Office of Ireland in Dublin Castle, which is your guarantee of the highest quality silver and gold.
