Irish Jewelry

IRISH JEWELRY

Sterling silver Irish jewelry as a genre is divided into two parts. One part celebrates the dashing and iconic Irish symbols like the three-leaf clover, the lucky four-leaf clover and the Irish Claddagh to name a few.
 
The Irish necklace below shows the famous Irish Claddagh necklace. Notice a little Celtic trinity knot in the pendant.
 
 

The other half of the Irish jewelry genre has a Celtic influence. It goes by the name of Celtic jewelry. One of the favorite Celtic knot designs is the Trinity knot or Triquetra symbol. It has three corners on the knot. Look at this Celtic knot necklace as an example:


Celtic jewelry has countless types and styles of Celtic knots. The Trinity knot necklace is very popular in the Celtic jewelry genre but by no means is it the only type of Celtic necklace.

Sermon On The Mount - Christian Virtues

Christian Virtues Taught At The Sermon On The Mount

Jesus taught eight virtues at the Sermon on the Mount and gave counsel on a few more topics. To understand the full Sermon on the mount read Matthew Chapter five.
 
From Matthew 5:2-11 we read the following:
 
And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  (Matthew 5:2-11)
 
In these verses Jesus taught us that blessed are those that have certain virtues like poor in spirit (humility), the merciful or pure in heart.
 
If we want to be blessed by The Lord we need to be humble, meek, seek after righteousness, merciful, pure in heart, and peacemakers. Further we are told that if we mourn we will be blessed along with being persecuted or reviled, we will be blessed.
 
The Sermon on the Mount is a passage of peace and hope. While we find peace while reading these verses we need to carefully consider each verse and ask ourselves if we really are merciful or meek etc.  We need to liken the scriptures to ourselves and apply each word and each verse to our lives to have the blessings The Lord is willing to give us based on virtues we need to have within our soul.
 
I'm not saying that Christian and cross necklaces will give us these virtues but they can serve to remind us of the importance of these Christian virtues. The sterling silver Celtic cross necklace is very symbolic and can serve to remind ourselves of what we need to do.

There are people all over the place that would like to take control over your life and if you do not have a plan for your life then you may find yourself in someone else's plan. That is why you need to plan your life.
 
Take stock of where you are right now. Think of where you want your life to be in ten, twenty and thirty years down the road. Put into places goals that will help get you there. If you do not have the strength and virtues needed to get their then develop them.

"There is a time and a place for looking back but not during the aftermath of a great storm. That is a time when you need to put your energy and resources in to rebuilding your life. Times like those are the times we need to work hard in the now part of our lives. Later on you can look back and find enjoyment in the struggles of now." (Callahan)
 
So what are your dreams and desire for the future? Write them down in your life plan. What needs to change, who do you need to become?  What strengths and virtues do you need to become what you want?
 
As you figure all of this out let affirmation jewelry aka word jewelry help remind you of the virtue's you need to become the person you want to be.

Kentucky Derby 2014 An Underdog Race

KENTUCKY DERBY AN UNDERDOG RACE

Everyone likes an underdog story. If I would have know the story about California Chrome a little bit better I would have rooting for that thorough bred.  They did mention a very short blurb about California Chrome at the start of the race but I was thinking about Medal Count as my horse to root for. I confess it was the story behind his name that attracted me to him.
 
 
 
But after they elaborated on California chrome I was very happy for his victory.  He can from a mare worth $2,500 and a stallion worth $8,000.  In traditional racing circles the horses that run the Kentucky Derby and other similar races come from much more expensive parents. The idea being that they will have better more qualified horses to run the race.
 
 
 
Additionally, California Chrome was bred in California where most of the other racers are born and bred in Kentucky and surrounding areas.
 
 
 
Celebrate this historic Kentucky Derby race with sterling silver equestrian jewelry.  Silver equestrian jewelry is made up of silver horse charms, silver horse necklaces, silver horse earrings etc.
 
 
 
As we watch California Chrome go for a triple crown victory get yourself some silver horse charms and make yourself a custom made horse necklace.
 

There is a very large collection of silver horse charms in this collection. They are provide connected pages of horse necklaces, horseshoe necklaces and charms. It is likely the biggest sterling silver equestrian jewelry collection online.

The Virtue Of Courage

THE VIRTUE OF COURAGE

Courage is a virtue that seems to be in short supply in this day and age.  I like this quote from the late Howard Cosell:
 
"What's right isn't always popular. What's popular isn't always right." (Howard Cosell)
 
 
 
It takes courage to make the right choice when all around you, you see that results of bad choices and feel pressure of those consequences.  That's where word jewelry comes in handy.  Sterling silver word jewelry is a bunch or word charms and word necklaces.
 
There is a word charm called the courage charm.  This courage charm is just one of over two hundred word charms.
 
 
 
 
To see all the various words engraved on the word charms then go to word charms.

Celtic Knot Jewelry

CELTIC KNOT JEWELRY

Sterling silver Celtic knot jewelry comes in a wonderful array of Celtic jewelry specifically designed with Celtic knots.
 

Out of all the sterling silver Celtic knot jewelry pieces, like Celtic knot rings, Celtic knot earrings and Celtic knot necklaces, we will look at a few types of Celtic knot necklaces. Keep in mind that while we are looking at just a few, there are numerous types of silver Celtic knot necklaces that you can see but going to Celtic knot necklaces.



Even the sterling silver Celtic cross necklace falls into the Celtic knot necklaces genre. The Celtic cross necklace above illustrates the use of Celtic knots in a Celtic cross necklace.


 
The Celtic knot often has specific meanings.  The Celtic knot in the above Celtic knot necklace represents a Celtic knot of "luck".
 
 
 

CELTIC CROSS MEANING

CELTIC CROSS MEANING

The sterling silver Celtic cross is not new to cross jewelry and Christian jewelry but it is gaining in major popularity.  The silver Celtic cross is so popular that it is very common to find a Celtic cross necklace in a collection of Christian crosses and no mention is even made of it being a sterling silver Celtic cross as opposed to a more traditional cross.
 
 
 
Here's why...  The silver Celtic cross is all about meaning and symbolism.  The Celtic cross is shaped like a "regular" cross but also has additional symbols.  For instance, the silver Celtic cross below has Celtic trinity knots and an Irish clover along with some other Celtic knots.


Understanding the Celtic cross meaning can't be explained by one sterling silver Celtic cross even one like the Celtic cross above with its extra symbols.  But if you were to look at the Celtic cross meaning source you could learn above most, if not all the various symbols that appear on various Celtic crosses.

Word Jewelry

Word Jewelry

Word jewelry, like any other sterling silver jewelry, comes in many different shapes and styles.  The main difference between the two types of jewelry is word jewelry has words and short phrases engraved on the charms and pendants.
 
Many of the sterling silver word charms look like the round love charm shown below in the love charm necklace.
 
Word jewelry can also work hand in hand with traditional themed jewelry like this sweet little number:
 
 
 
"We are all weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we call it love." (Robert Fulghum)
 
The love charm necklace shown below is popular for so many obvious reasons but it also goes well with this quote by Mr. Fulghum.
 
 
 
The life charm goes well with that quote also and it is the same as the love charm only with the word "life" engraved on it.

Sterling silver Celtic crosses make wonderful sterling silver Celtic cross necklaces.    What makes Celtic crosses so different from traditional Christian crosses is the presence of Irish and Celtic symbols.  These Celtic and Irish symbols add a surprising degree of Christian symbolism like the trinity knot, the Irish clover and an assortment of other interesting symbols. Let's look at some of these Celtic crosses in the form of a Celtic cross necklace and some Irish crosses.

 
As you look at these Celtic crosses in the form of silver Celtic cross necklaces you will see some with a Celtic influence and some with an Irish influence. The Celtic cross necklace above is all Celtic symbols.
 
 
 The Celtic cross necklace just above is made with an Irish cross. What makes it an Irish cross necklace is the presence of a Irish clover. The Irish clover has three leafs that represent the Holy Trinity. Although, it does have some Celtic symbols as well.
