Made in Ireland, this gorgeous bird brooch from Solvar Jewelry is made from a 9ct gold plated base metal and hand-decorated with a lovely colored fine enamel. The pretty brooch measures approximately 2 1/8″ long from beak to tail feathers, x 1″ high. The design is inspired by art in the ancient masterpiece the Book of Kells, illustrated by Irish monks sometime between the 6th and 8th centuries. The national treasure now lives in the library of Trinity College, Dublin, who licensed Solvar to create a Book of Kells jewelry collection.
Solvar Ltd is a family-owned Irish company who has been crafting beautiful artisanal Irish jewelry in the heart of Dublin since 1941.
