Now that we are in the centenary year of the Easter Rising of 1916, the artistic commemorative tributes have already begun to roll out. And for the fashion-lovers among us, deBláca Jewellery has presented the perfect way to pay tribute to one of the most significant events of our history.
Inspired by award-winning jeweller Mairead de Bláca’s passion for Irish history, she has unveiled her range’s 1916 Easter Lily collection – a stunning, Irish-made sterling silver interpretation of the traditional Easter Lily.
Hallmarked in Dublin Castle’s assay office, the collection is inspired by the calla lily; a symbol of remembrance first designed by Cumann na mBan in 1925, in commemoration of the events of nine years previous.
The collection features a pendant, stud and drop earrings, and a lapel pin, and it already has a pair of high-profile fans in the form of President Michael D. Higgins and his wife, Sabina.
The deBláca 1916 Easter Lily collection will be officially launched on Friday, February 19.
