Newgrange Double Spiral Ring
This Newgrange double spiral ring is inspired by the megalithic art work at Newgrange (Brú na Bóinne in Gaelic), a Neolithic passage tomb built with precise astronomical alignment to the sun, built over 5000 years ago. The art is one of the most remarkable features of the Newgrange monument. Some of it is a spectacular combination of spirals, lozenges, chevrons, triangles and arrangements of parallel lines and arcs.
There are many theories to the meaning of the carvings; the most popular representing the cycles of the sun.
The single spiral is believed to represent the sun.
The double spiral representing the sun’s journey over the course of the year.
The Triskele is believed to represent the unity of the elements of earth; air, fire and water.
The silver Newgrange double spiral ring is a heavyweight ring with an open design. It is a unique design, handmade in my workshop in Dublin, Ireland.
The ring bears the full Irish hallmark from the Irish Assay Office in Dublin Castle and stamped “Made in Ireland”.
