'My Ghraih' translating as 'My love' from Manx Gaelic, this necklace has grown from the Lover's Daggers, developing into a wearable necklace that hangs at heart level.
Born from a real secret sixteenth century dating ritual where men would gift women a small dagger to be hidden inside her corset, a talisman of their courtship. In a time where women held little power, the passing of an object of power from a man to a woman is a dangerous and captivating story. In Gaelic mythology both the warrior goddess, Morrígan, and the God of love and poetry, Aengus Óg, both use daggers, to win fates and destinies through battles for love and death.
It is these dualities that have inspirited our dagger designs, exploring the endless fables and stories of love and danger intertwined.
Crafted with care and respect for the environment, this dagger necklace is handmade made with with recycled sterling silver, reflecting our commitment to sustainable and ethical jewellery. The unique clasp, that features as part of the design, links into any length of the sparkly chain and hold the necklace in place. By embracing traditional craftsmanship, the daggers are sand cast in our studio by hand, ensuring that no two pieces are alike.
