Gold Ogham Necklace

Sale price$99.00

'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.
