Tiny Newgrange Stud Earrings.
These unique Sterling silver tiny Newgrange stud earrings are 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, over 5000 years ago. The art is one of the most remarkable features of the Newgrange monument. Some of it is a spectacular combinations of spirals, lozenges, chevrons, triangles and arrangements of parallel lines and arcs.
There are many theories as to the meaning of the carvings; the most popular representing the cycles of the sun
