Solstice Silver Pendant GP3


The Ring of Brodgar, one of Orkney's most iconic historical sites, has been a continued source of inspiration for artists throughout the decades. As we approach the celebration of the Summer Solstice it seems like the most befitting time to release our new range inspired by the Neolithic stones. Solstice, designed by Laura Johnston, represents the natural illusion of a ring curving into the horizon.
