THE OGHAM COLLECTION

We at Or Jewelers decided to design another beautiful necklace, 'The Ogham' collection after the successful launch of our European Capital of Culture 2020 necklace and our coin collection.

Ogham is an ancient from of writing which flourished in Ireland from the 4th to the 7th Centuries AD. It takes its name from Ogma, the Celtic God of Eloquence and Literature.

Our Alphabet is based upon original script. We have taken it and developed it into a Handcrafted Pendant - an ideal gift from Ireland bearing your name or that of family, friend or loved ones. Ogham is based in old Irish, and as a result only 20 of the typical Latin characters have Ogham equivalents. Therefore the letters J, K, V, W, X are absent from the Ogham script.
