The history of Celtic jewelry

There is some debate about when Celtic jewelry first became popular and why. Some believe that the jewelry was imported into Britain from the Celtic areas of Wales and Ireland. Others believe that early Celtic jewelry was created in Ireland who lived in relative isolation from the mainland. The people of Wales, as well as many other Celtic nations, used imported silver and copper for their jewelry, rather than creating their own.
