OREON Ring in Sterling Silver and Irish Gold. Irish Gold Jewelry is exclusive to House of Lor, under license. Inspiration for the OREON Collection is the Dry Stone Walls of the West of Ireland. A dry stone wall is built with only stones and nothing else. It does not need mortar or cement to stand and have structural integrity.
Dry stone walling has undergone a resurgence in popularity in Ireland due to the perseverance of a small number of farmers and the re-engagement with it by others. Due also to the teaching of the craft by what was a very small number of dedicated masons.
Dry Stone Walls are very common throughout Ireland but are associated with the West of Ireland where they proliferate the rural landscape. A dry stone wall will absorb light in places and cast shadows across the stone in the wall, giving the impression of being more three dimensional than the solid masonry wall. The OREON Ring’s shapes are impressions of the stone shapes used in Dry Stone Walls’ construction.
