New York, NY (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
With jewelry sales in the US continuing to rise, up 6.1% year over year to July 2013 (source IDEX online resource), leading online Irish jewelry retailer Celtic Promise plan to expand on their modern jewelry offerings to appeal to a more discerning international market.
"There's a view that Irish jewelry is a dated product, one that is exclusively for an older generation with Irish heritage," says Celtic Promise co-founder Síofra Hill, "however there is so much fresh, contemporary young talent in Ireland that is just waiting to be discovered by an international audience."
Though this online store already stocks designs by leading contemporary goldsmiths including Martina Hamilton and Rachel Swan, Hill and her team plan to expand on their range of modern Irish jewelry in the coming months.
“Modern Irish goldsmiths continue to gain inspiration from Ireland’s rich cultural past and rugged beauty,” says Hill “however while their level of craftsmanship and exquisite attention detail remain, their interpretations of this rich heritage are much more bold and sculptural in form.”
Staying true to its ethos of "heritage jewelry with a contemporary twist," Hill has just returned from Showcase Ireland, Ireland's creative expo, where she was scouting new designer talent for the store. The designers view the representation as an opportunity to reach a wider more affluent market outside of Ireland, whose economic troubles have negatively impacted domestic jewelry sales in recent years.
Anything you find in the store will be representative of the founders’ Irish heritage, which is the premise upon which the company is building the Celtic Promise brand.
