Dream in Gaelic (Aisling) - Circulo Necklace

Regular price $54.95
This circulo pendant is finely engraved with the words for DREAM in English on one side and Irish Gaelic on the other side:
 
Dream (one side)
Aisling (reverse)
 
Aisling pronounced ASH-ling or ASH-lin, an Irish language feminine meaning "dream", "vision" or "reverie". Aisling is associated with a poetic genre that developed in the late 17th and 18th century in Irish in which Ireland appears as a vision, a beautiful woman, who laments the current state of the Irish people and predicts an imminent revival of their fortunes. The concept of "dream", however, is universal. The words are engraved on a simple and elegant shape and can be worn with either side facing outwards.
 
What is a circulo necklace? The "circulo" is based on the letter O created by the 15th century French typographer Claude Garamond. Revered for the clarity, elegance and proportion of his type styles, his design translates beautifully to a piece of jewelry.

DVB utilizes the "cire-perdue" or lost-wax casting method of jewelry creation. Lost-wax casting is actually an ancient method of jewelry production used in creating the finest jewelry. Owing to the nature of the technique and the hand finishing of each casting, small variations in dimension, weight and finish will occur.
