Newgrange necklace cut pattern is inspired by the passage tomb at Newgrange. Dating back to 3200 B.C is older than the pyramids in Egypt and is officially a World Heritage site. At dawn on the December 21, the shortest day of the year, every year and the cut pattern reflects the sunlight as it shines directly into the central chamber of the tomb.
