Our Story...

Step into the enchanting world of Solstice, where the magic of mind, body, and spirit comes alive..... 

After making the move to Northern Ireland in 1993, we planted the seeds of Solstice in Coleraine. With our experience retailing jewellery, crafts, and soft furnishings, straight from the vibrant markets of Latin America, our little shop quickly became a gem, literally. We filled it with all sorts of treasures – polished and raw gemstones, crystals, salt lamps, incense, smudge sticks, and essential oils. Oh, and let's not forget our love for Fair Trade Gifts and Jewellery. Our customers loved the unique vibe we brought to the town.

Fast forward to 2004, and Solstice was ready for its next adventure. We set up our second shop in Holywood, Co Down, with a newfound focus on sterling silver jewellery, crystals, gemstones, and an exquisite collection of incense and oils. It was like our own little haven of beauty and spirituality.

Solstice wasn't just about the products; it was about stories. The stories of the people who crafted the jewellery, the energy of the gemstones, and the mystical allure of the incense. We wanted to share this magic with the world, so in 2015, we leaped into the digital realm with our online store. Now, whether you're strolling through our physical shop or browsing our website from the comfort of your home, you're stepping into a world crafted with love and passion.

Please do swing by our shop, say hello, and feel the energy for yourself. Or, if you're more of an online adventurer, cozy up and explore our website. Whether you're an old friend or a new face, thank you for being a part of our journey. Solstice started in '93, and we're still unwrapping new chapters every day. Let's make some magic together! 🌙✨
