Our Fuchsia collection consists of pieces made from 925 sterling silver, 10 carat gold and 14 carat gold. This plant is found all along the west-coast of Ireland, along roads and in gardens.
Fuchsia is a flowering plant that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first to be scientifically described was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola circa 1696/1697 by Charles Plumier, a French Minim monk and botanist. He named the new genus after a German botanist named Leonhart Fuchs.
Around 110 species are recognised, with colours varying from white to dark red, purple-blue and orange. New Zealand is home to the largest species, with plants growing up to 12-15 metres (39-49 ft) tall.
