Connemara Marble Heaven’s Gate Silver Pendant

This is a deeply symbolic piece of Irish Jewelry created by Stephen Walsh. Whilst visiting Dublin’s National Gallery Stephen was inspired to create this iconic pendant by two particular pieces of art.

“The Immaculate Conception” painted in the early 1660’s by Francisco de Zurbarán and “Virgin Child” painted by Mario Palmezzano in 1513.

Both pictures depict the timesless image of the Blessed Mother and in the latter she appears to stand, framed within the gates of heaven.  Taking our natural gemstone Connemara Marble as the featured stone, we have claw set the green marble within hallmarked sterling silver.

Intricate silver work constructs the eternal image of Our Lady as she stands at the gate of Heaven. The iconography is timeless and is deeply personal. This is a limited edition piece of heirloom jewelry that will be passed from generation to generation.

Combining natural beauty with spiritual strength this is a piece to be cherised.

Please see below for all the additional information on this piece of hand crafted Irish Jewelry.

Handcrafted in Ireland

Connemara Marble is a rare form of marble found in Connemara Co. Galway in the West of Ireland.

• It is a calcite marble which contains large amounts of serpentine. The marble forms when limestone is heated under pressure. While the colour is predominantly green there are often shades of grey and brown seen thoughout.
• Formed from sediment deposited in a shallow primal sea over 900 million years ago. The beautiful stryations of rich to pale green within the marble are formed by tiny crystals of green serpentine, diopside, chlorite and rich white calcite with dolomite.
• Connemara Marble has been used for centuries as a medium of exchange. Its beautiful swirling patterns perfectly represent the Irish landscapes where it is found. An inspiration for jewelry makers and architects across the world as the patterns are different in each stone which means each piece is entirely unique!
