Adorned with Sterling silver inlays, these outstanding and unique hand-carved 5000 year old Irish Bog Oak earrings will be made for you, or a loved one, in my studio on the West of Ireland.
Bog Oak comes from ancient forests that once covered Ireland. Huge oaks have been buried in peat bogs and preserved from decay by the acidic and anaerobic bog conditions, sometimes for hundreds or even thousands of years. The wood is usually stained black by tannin dissolved in the acidic water. Bog-wood represents the early stages in the fossilization of wood, with further stages ultimately forming lignite and coal over a period of many millions of years.
Known as King of the forest for its strength and longevity, the Oak was sacred to the ancient Celts and is considered one of the three primary magical woods.
Light and elegant, these Irish bog oak earrings are suitable for both everyday wear and for that special occasion! They are the perfect gift for anyone with Irish heritage or for someone who resonates with the Celtic myths and traditions of the natural world.
These long bog-wood earrings make a beautiful 5 Year Anniversary gift, as wood is the traditional gift representing 5 years of marriage.
