There’s just something about the green, green hills of Ireland...once people visit the Emerald Isle once, chances are they are going to want to keep a piece of its culture and history with them forever. If you aren’t lucky enough to make your home in the land of the leprechaun, take home a piece of the Irish magic with a piece of genuine Ireland jewelry. Ireland jewelry stores do carry the same traditional Western jewelry pieces as jewelry store around the world, but most tourists are coming for specific, unique, made-in-Ireland rings and other jewelry pieces.
Before you purchase your own piece of Ireland jewelry, it’s important to know the various terms and symbols relating to traditional Ireland jewelry. The term “Celtic jewelry” is quite general—it refers to jewelry made using motifs and symbols that were traditionally used by the Celts, an ancient nation that lived in Ireland. Although you can buy Celtic-style jewelry all over the world, Ireland jewelry stores are the best place in the world to find real, authentic Ireland jewelry made with traditional high-quality materials. Ireland jewelry features many images and shapes, like knots, crosses, and animal shapes, each with its own symbolic meaning.
One of the most popular kinds of Ireland jewelry is the Ireland engagement ring—otherwise known as the claddagh ring. Elements of this traditional design date back to Roman times, although the ring in the form it is produced today was first made in the fishing village of Claddagh in the 17th century. Although it is known as the “Ireland engagement ring”, the ring can actually be used for an engagement or as a symbol of love and friendship in a more general context. The traditional design is formed with two hands clasping a heart between them. The heart is usually topped with a crown symbol. Although these rings are often used as engagement rings in Ireland, outside the Emerald Isle they are often used as a way of broadcasting one’s Irish heritage to the world.
