Stand in solidarity with the Catholic Church in Ireland. The apparition of at Knock, Ireland contains many references to a crown worn by the Virgin Mary. Following the tradition of other sacred artists, we have represented this crown with 12 stars on a rale of 14 karat gold. The tradition of green to represent Ireland is part of a long history of religious persecution, when the Confederation of Kilkenny rebelled against their religious persecutors in defense of the one true faith. Basic chain (retail $185) is a 1.4 gram rope chain and deluxe chain (retail $298) is a 2.42 gram wheat chain. For more information on our chains, please visit our FAQ. Wear this green stone to show your solidarity with the heart of all faithful in Ireland, but also to remind the world of hope.
