Lost loved ones
Love and grief are powerfully intertwined. As a token of remembrance or sympathy, a meaningful piece can bring comfort.
I bought it for myself after my mother died. I like the sense that she is still with me lighting my way. My mother was Irish so the wording is perfect. And I love the little diamond.
My dad passed away suddenly and on the first birthday without him, I treated myself to the Anam chain so I had something to remind me of him, I bought myself the initial ‘d’ for dad and also for my lil boy Dara, my sister bought me ‘L’ for my name and my mum bought me ‘c’ for my husbands name. To me the piece is a lovely piece and a reminder I wear everyday of all the people I love
In November 2021 I had a miscarriage and lost our much wanted 3rd baby. I wanted to do something to remember them every day so I bought a small Las mo Shlí pendant to hang above the Anam chain I already had with my other two children's initials. My 3rd baby is always there with them and even if we have another child and another initial on the Anam chain that little diamond will always be a reminder of the one that wasn't quite ready for earth!
My cousin lost her partner to suicide last November. Leaving her with 2 young children, I wanted to do something for her but wasn't sure what I could do. I was saving up for an Anam necklace for a treat for Christmas as I adore the collection. I used the money I had saved to buy an Anam necklace for her with the initials of her 2 children in silver & her partners initial in gold. She absolutely loves it and never takes it off. She said it's the nicest gift that she has ever received.
