About Boru Wood Quay Jewlary
The Vikings came to Ireland in 795AD and gave Dublin or Dubh-Linn, meaning Black Pool, its name. They were in Ireland until King Brian Boru defeated them in 1014. Wood Quay is the site where the remains of a huge Viking settlement was founded in Dublin in the 1970's. The Wood Quay collection captures the essence of these Viking warriors and also celebrates their creativity. Using silver and pewter they created dress clasps, necklaces, cloak fastenings, brooches, rings as well as armlets in a variety of shapes and sizes. The beaded surface of this raised bangle has been oxidised to give it an antique, matte gun metal appearance. It is then decorated with polished stylised snake symbols and adorned with Celtic Warrior 18K gold Bead.
These magnificent pieces of jewellery have inspired Boru to create the Wood Quay Range, part of the Celtic Warrior Collection.
Handcrafted by Irish goldsmiths and also assayed at Dublin Castle.
