Old Celtic folklore credits Ogma, the Irish god of eloquence, with devising the form of writing known as Ogham — not entirely for selfless reasons. Legend says that Ogma wanted to give the people of Ireland who heard him speak a way to record and share the splendor of his words. Ogham was used almost exclusively for the Old Irish language, in contrast to the Latin alphabet, which was used for religious Christian texts.
This Ogham Writing necklace showcases the letters of “Slainte,” the Irish word for Health, read top to bottom. This gold-plated pendant makes a beautiful talisman that will connect you to old Irish traditions and mythology, perhaps even calling forth good health from the old gods in times of need.
The handmade pendant is over 1.5 Inches Long and comes with a 20 Inch Gold Chain it represents a unique period in the establishment of a distinct Irish identity through writing that can be worn by anyone, symbolizing old and new heritage alike.
