Given the level of postal strikes planned in the run up to Christmas I am now recommending customers on Island of Ireland should choose Courier service, in NI you can also choose RM Special Delivery. I have no courier service to GB but I recommend RM Special Delivery. Europe and ROW I recommend International Tracked.

Early Irish jewellery was hammered out of gold and shaped like a crescent Moon and known as a “Lunula” These were popular in the bronze age no doubt to show status and wealth. Later in Ireland, the penannular brooch developed and was used as a cloak fastener in Medieval times. They were often very ornate and consisted of a semicircular body with a sliding pin for fastening robes. However, the essential shape of the crescent moon persisted.

This Bangle is a large chunky piece, approximately 67mm in diameter
