The Celtic Harp takes center stage!
This wax seal necklace was handmade from an Irish Coin Weight bearing the legendary Celtic Harp.Coin weights were used by merchants to test the weight of a coin... you placed the coin on one tray of the balance scale, and the calibrated coin weight on the other - wha-la, you knew if the coin was a proper weight!
The Celtic Harp is the symbol of Ireland, and appeared on their coins! Coin weights almost always had the same image on them as the coin itself, making it easy to pair the weight to the coin for testing.Now, you can proclaim your love of Ireland (and that you're "Standard" Irish issue yourself) with this hand-crafted necklace.
