Sterling Silver Claddagh and Shamrock Earrings
Fully Hallmarked in the Assay Office at Dublin Castle
These Claddagh and Shamrock Earrings are a beautiful combination of Irish heritage. They feature a traditional Claddagh symbol within a Cubic Zirconia stone circle. And also a silver iconic shamrock that dangles beside it.
The Claddagh is one of the most popular symbols in Irish jewelry. The heart symbolizes love, the hand’s friendship and the crown loyalty.
The name ‘shamrock’ comes from the Irish name “seamrog”, meaning little clover. The shamrock plant is recognised the world over as the badge of Ireland. It has been a symbol of Ireland since the 18th century.
The shamrock’s most direct link to the Irish people comes in the form of the legend of Saint Patrick bringing Christianity to Ireland. According to legend, Saint Patrick explained the Christian Holy Trinity to the Irish using the three leaves of the shamrock as a metaphor.
Now every year on St Patrick’s Day the Shamrock is worn across the world as a mark of Irish heritage.
Celebrate your Irish Heritage with these Claddagh and Shamrock Earrings, that will always remind you of your most treasured moment. Or make it the perfect gift with so much meaning for someone you love.
