Celtic Shipwreck Jewelry

Cornwall, England has a rich mining history, dating back to the Bronze Age of 4,000 years ago. Celtic ancestors furthered the mining traditions, supplying Europe and the Middle East with metals to make tools and weapons. The tin industry reached its pinnacle during the 19th century, and its demise in the 1990s. At the center of the mining industry was Cornish Tin. Cornish Tin was locally mined and cast into ingots. Tin ingots were often shipped by sea, destined for other places.

In 1863, tin ingots were shipped from Penzance on the SS Liverpool steamer. Amid dense fog, the SS Liverpool collided with the La Plata, bound for Peru, in St. George’s Channel. No lives were lost and all sailors returned. The fate of the ships and the cargo, however, was less fortunate. The SS Liverpool and its cargo sank to the bottom. There the tin ingots remained until they were raised from the wreck 138 years later. The ingots were carefully cleaned, revealing the Lamb and Flag stamp commonly used as a symbol of purity. Each piece of jewelry below is comprised of at least 10% Cornish Tin from the SS Liverpool and blended with other shipwreck and new tin for durability. Therefore, each piece holds a bit of Cornish history and culture from another era, making it all the more special.

Tin is the Traditional gift for the 10th wedding anniversary.
