Anam Cara, the spiritual Celtic Concept of Soulmates. Anam, Irish for Soul. Cara, Irish for Friend. In recent years, our Anam Cara jewelry have become our bestselling pieces.
Here we've gathered 6 of our most popular women's and men's anam cara pendants and bracelets to share with you.
Inspired by the magnificent ancient Ogham standing stones scattered around the Irish landscape, jewelry designer and silversmith Eileen Moylan translates the beautiful concept of anam cara into unique Ogham jewelry. Skillfully handcrafted, each piece is made in solid silver and gold in her workshop in County Cork.
Ogham is the earliest known form of the written Irish language. This ancient script was used from around the 4th to 7th century AD. It was mainly used to inscribe names onto medieval standing stones. These were believed to have been carved with names as boundary markers.
Using the Ogham alphabet, Eileen engraved her pieces with Anam Cara in this mysterious ancient language. Hidden in this medieval alphabet, her designs offer you the opportunity to wear your secret inscription, only you will understand.
