Solvar Jewelry Sterling Silver Harp $54.95


This Sterling Silver Harp necklace is made by Solvar in Dublin, Ireland.

The Irish Harp has many distinguishing features such as a sounding box carved from a single block of williow wood, T-shaped fore-pillar, a heavy neck and thick brass strings. These combine to give the harp a unique sound for which it has been famous since medieval times. Irish Harpists also had a special playing skill and were much in demand among the ancient kings for entertainment. The Harp is now a national emblem and appears on the Irish coinage and all official documention.
