Irish Jewelry

The rich tradition and fine craftsmanship of Irish jewelry are well established. Artisan jewelry makers in Ireland have been designing and hand crafting exquisite, distinctively Irish jewelry pieces for many centuries. Celtic culture in Ireland has been dated to the 8th century BC during the iron age and precious metalwork and jewelry have been a tradition ever since. Today famous Irish jewelry makers such as Solvar, Boru, Jean Butler Jewellery, and ShanOre Jewelry are known for their beautiful traditional and modern treatments of the many classic Irish motifs.

Uniquely Irish Jewelry Motifs

& Irish Phrases

Among the most recognizable, Claddagh "faith rings", according to how they are worn, express one's current relationship status. Claddagh jewelry in Ireland was traditionally passed from mother to first daughter and worn to symbolize friendship or as a wedding ring. Though of earlier origin, the Claddagh symbol takes its name from the ancient Irish fishing village of Claddagh just outside Galway City on west of Ireland where it has long been featured in jewelry design. Jewelry bearing the phrase "Mo Anam Cara" ("my soul mate" in Irish) or "Gra Go Deo" (Irish for "Love Forever") can proclaim a heartfelt bound between lovers or close friends. Sacred symbols such as the Trinity knot and the cross, whether rendered in pure gold or sterling silver or adorned with diamonds or other jewels, can serve as religious symbols and markers of important religious occasions or simply as beautiful historical or secular jewelry design motifs. Irish jewelry bearing shamrocks or leprechauns is worn as a proud statement of Irish heritage or just to proclaim and inspire Irish spirit on St. Patrick's Day or on any other day that calls for a bit of Irish.

Jewelry Featuring Irish / Gaelic Phrases

Perhaps the most famous among Irish / Gaelic language expressions featured as jewelry motifs, "Mo Anam Cara" (My Soul Mate) and is a favorite inscription for the bands of Irish rings, wedding rings, pendants and bracelets. The Irish expression "Gra Go Deo" (Love Forever) and the variation "Gra Anois Agus Go Deo" (Love Now and Forever) are also beautifully rendered on our gold and silver bracelets and rings. The phrases "Le Cheile" (Together) and "Dha Chroi Le Cheile" (Two Hearts Together) are typically accompanied on jewelry by the Irish Claddagh, two hands clasping a heart, ancient symbol of faith and trust.
