History of one brand: Miracle
The company was founded in 1946 in Birmingham – the center of the jewelry industry in England. For more than 60 years, Miracle Jewelry LTD has been manufacturing jewelry using ancient Celtic motifs, traditional symbols of Ireland and Scotland, English Baroque, Art Deco, Art Nouveau styles. And now the company Miracle continues to produce limited collections.
An interesting fact is that some of the products were made at the mint in Edinburgh, Scotland. The designs of many of the pieces were inspired by antique pieces of jewelry found in England during archaeological excavations. This once again confirms that each brooch, pendant or bracelet of the Miracle brand contains a special meaning, symbol, sign, and there are absolutely no random details in their design.
Using glass and smalt in products, the company strived for naturalism. For this, the inserts were made slightly uneven. And when preparing the smalt, the pigments were distributed unevenly, which imitated the natural color of the stones.
What is the symbolism of Miracle jewelry?
The oldest and noblest Order of the Thistle was revived by King James the Seventh of Scotland in 1687. It includes members of the British royal family and some foreign monarchs. The motto of the order: “No one touches me with impunity.”
Celtic motifs and ornaments
A revival of interest in Celtic art arose as early as the 19th century in England, along with interest in the Celtic epic. Metal products came into fashion, repeating the archaeological finds of that time.
Ornaments imitate weaving of baskets, braids and fabrics.
In early Christian manuscripts, ornaments were used to help in the inner spiritual quest. For example, the labyrinth was considered as a symbol of the life path, in the center of which is the source of Strength and vital energy.
A well-known symbol of good luck and Ireland itself. Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, used clover to explain to people the trinity of the Holy Trinity.
So Miracle, on a new round of history, returned the ancient symbols to the fashion world of the 20th century.
