Sterling Silver Ogham Necklace
'The Ogham' Collection Necklace is amongst one of our most beloved pieces at Ór Jewelers.
Our exclusive Ogham necklaces have been carefully designed & curated by our in-house team of jewelers.
Giving nod to our humble Irish roots, our Ogham Pendant is based on Ogham, 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.
Individual letters were formed from groups of straight or slanting lines carved on the edges of Wooded Staves or Boulders. Most of the surviving examples are straightforward inscriptions, but the system was widely employed by the Druids and was thought to have magical overtones.The Ogham Alphabet may also have been linked to the Druids’ interest in Tree Lore. Each character represents a different tree and thirteen specific trees represent the thirteen lunar months of the calendar year.
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.

Wearing Your Jewellery
- Remove Jewellery During Tasks – When performing manual tasks, remove your jewellery to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids.
- Put Jewellery on After Applying Makeup – Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotions contain chemicals that can damage jewellery.
- Remove Jewellery Before Entering Swimming Pools and Spas – Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewellery causing colour changes and tarnish.
- Contact Sports and Jewellery Don’t Mix – Apart from potential damage to your jewellery, it is dangerous if items get caught or entangled.
Cleaning Your Jewellery
- Remove Your Jewellery Before Bathing – Soap can cause a film to form, making your jewellery appear dull and dirty.
- Use Jewellery Polishing Cloths for Best Results – Polish silver or gold with a jewellery polishing cloth for best results. Use of tissue or paper towels can cause scratches because of fibres in these products.
- Clean Your Jewellery with Care – Bleach can literally destroy jewellery so avoid it at all costs.
- Use Warm Water to Clean Jewellery – Using warm mild soapy water is the best option when cleaning your own jewellery, if you do not have a jewellery polishing cloth. A soft toothbrush is ideal for reaching into hard to access areas in rings.
- Tarnish is a product of oxidation, caused by interacting of silver jewellery or objects with certain elements such as oxygen or sulphur as well as with certain acids. Tarnishing on silver jewellery, when worn on a regular basis usually does not occur.
- Storage for a prolonged time causes silver jewellery to tarnish. Taking a medication that changes the acidity of your skin may also cause silver jewellery to tarnish. Cosmetics, perfume, deodorant etc can also cause tarnishing to your silver jewellery.
- To keep your silver tarnish-free, frequently clean your silver in a mild dishwashing liquid diluted in water, rinse well and then thoroughly dry your silver jewellery. Always store silver in a dry container or a plastic bag with anti-tarnish paper.
