Details

The eighth-century Book of Kells is an ornate, hand-copied illuminated manuscript of the gospels--one of the most important pieces of early Celtic art in the world. These sterling silver pendants are inspired by the highly decorative capital letters, called initia, that begin each section of text. Each is cast from sterling silver and finished by hand in a family-run Dublin studio. The pendant centers a classic sterling silver cable chain.

"Lovely but small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The pendant and chain are lovely but I expected larger. The website has an inaccurate description of 1 for the length of the pendant. The length is exactly 3/4 inch. That is a huge difference. I wish it had been the 1 as stated.

"Nice piece of work"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The only problem is the length of the chain. It was to short for my daughters neck so I had to order a longer chain or buy another complete product and use the secon chain to enlarge the first chain. If buying this item be sure to make the fit.

"A big disappointment"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought 2 of these for my 2 daughters. The k was lovely, however the lower case L was not very nice. Although it was exact duplicate of the original lower case L, it could have been done with the Upper case, which I think would have looked a lot nicer. It would be helpful if you had photos of each letter before purchasing.

"A Book To Purchase- One For You & One For A Friend"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This book entitled Photo Ark could be bought just to be another coffee table book but if one just opens to any page in this hefty book of beautiful photos, one finds within it so much more. It is an incredible study of so many non humans that do inhabit this earth but if we as humans do not wake up, we will find many of them diminished or extinct. The author/photographer, Mr. Joel Sartore has given us a beautiful book with much to ponder and in purchasing a copy will turn us into advocates such as he.
