Gents Signet Ring Irish Gold Boss
Arda (20mm) Gents Signet Ring with Rare Irish Gold Boss. Sustainable Irish gold mined and crafted in Ireland.
The Ardagh Chalice is one of the greatest treasures of the early Irish Church. It is part of a hoard of objects found in the 19th century by a young man digging for potatoes near Ardagh, Co. Limerick. Used for dispensing Eucharistic wine during the celebration of Mass. The form of the chalice recalls late Roman tableware, but the method of construction is Irish.

Gents Signet Ring Irish Gold Boss
Arda (20mm) Gents Signet Ring with Rare Irish Gold Boss.
The Ardagh Chalice is one of the greatest treasures of the early Irish Church. It is part of a hoard of objects found in the 19th century by a young man digging for potatoes near Ardagh, Co. Limerick. It was used for dispensing Eucharistic wine during the celebration of Mass. The form of the chalice recalls late Roman tableware, but the method of construction is Irish.
The bowl and foot of the chalice are made of spun silver. The bowl’s outer side is decorated with applied gold, silver, glass, amber and enamel ornament. The underside of the foot is also highly decorated and contains a polished rock crystal at the centre.
The bowl is attached to the stem and foot by a bronze pin. The names of eleven apostles and St. Paul are inscribed below the gold filigree band and studs encircling the bowl. The letters are seen against a stippled background. Incised animal decoration can also be seen below two handle escutcheons, decorated with elaborate glass studs and filigree panels.
The Ardagh Chalice represents a high point in early medieval craftsmanship. It is housed in the National Museum of Ireland for everyone to marvel and enjoy.
The intricate design around the Ardagh Chalice is the design inspiration for the House of Lor ARDA Collection.

"I purchased the White Gold Shamrock Band. More stunning in reality than in the picture! I am so pleased with it. I love it! So different from any other jewellery I came across when looking for a shamrock ring after days of trawling the sites on the internet. I am so lucky to have found it! I received a first-class customer service from start to finish! Well worth the five stars! Thank you. Alison".

"Beautiful ring! The band is thick compared to other rings we own, and in retrospect would have preferred a narrower band. Still very pleased and the ring looks fantastic. "
