Jewelry with traditional Irish motifs that tell the world that you are Irish!
The shamrock is a traditional symbol of Ireland. Although any of the clover family with three leaves can technically be called a shamrock, purists will say that only one member of this family can be called a true shamrock (legend has it that this shamrock doesn't grow anywhere else, only in Ireland). The three leaves are a symbol of the Divine Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The claddagh (pronounced clad'-uh), a heart held by two hands and topped by a crown, is said to be a symbol of love, friendship and loyalty. Originating in the town of Claddagh in Ireland, this symbol is quite old.
In Ireland, the harp is considered to be the most Irish of all symbols.
The St. Brigit's cross on this page is a cross unique to the Irish.
Please check the size of each piece carefully against a ruler before ordering. We give measurements of all jewelry pieces on this site so that you will know their size in advance; this will save disappointment, returning pieces, etc.
