Ornaments, labeled “MIRACLE”, first appeared in 1946. Created by the company Hill & Co, Miracle began producing costume jewelry in Birmingham – the heart of the jewelry industry in England.
For more than 70 years, Miracle Jewelry LTD has made excellent jewelry in the traditions of the Celts, Ireland, Scotland, Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, English Baroque, Middle Ages and other styles. In many respects it became possible due to the meticulousness of the designers working on Miracle – all ornaments have a historical basis.
I really love jewelry from the company Miracle, as it has a unique charm and energy! Noteworthy, in “Miracle” jewelry often used natural stones or imitation of their special invention. In particular, smalt of a unique composition and different colors, perfectly imitating natural stones.
Until now, the company Miracle produced limited collections of jewelry, which quality is still on top. Sold mainly in the UK and Ireland, Miracle has its own unique style. It is always jewelry with meaning, and it is impossible not to admire the design of this brand. Very original high-quality jewelry!

Archaic design emphasizes the large size of the ornaments and slightly convex rim shape. There are brooches resembling a ceremonially decorated medieval shield. You can often see the motifs of Scottish swords and, of course, the semi-official symbol of Scotland – a thistle. Jewelery alloy is of very high quality, shades of antique gold and silver and blackening. Large cabochons are also a distinctive feature of the medieval style. Multicolored glass inserts in ornaments made of smalt, imitating natural stones – agate, jasper, chalcedony, according to special technology.

“Miracle” generally tried to make transparent glass and smalt in its ornaments as naturalistic as possible. Also, the inserts – colored glass for smalt, pigments, layers and stripes specially made slightly uneven for better imitation of the natural stone.

Traditionally, brooches were the most popular and favorite decorations for the Celts. Worn by both women and men, the brooch combined a decorative and utilitarian function. It was a functional detail, and also contained a magical subtext, acting as an amulet. According to belief, such amulet protects from all sorts of evil spirits.

Although «Miracle» Jewelry has not always had labeling, but jewelry collectors perfectly recognize it thanks to the stylistics and materials of the company. Loved and known by the English and Scots, Miracle jewelry, of course, enjoys popularity all over the world.
