Boru Jewelry

New Signature Pieces: 

Introduced this year from Boru are a stunning diamond set pendant and earrings, created using both sterling silver and 10K gold. Incorporating interlaced Trinity Knots also called the Triquetra, Christians believe that the three points of the Irish trinity knot represent the three elements of the holy trinity: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The trinity knot has also been known to symbolize life, death, and rebirth. The Pendant comes on an 18”-20” Extender Spiga Chain.

Nuada Range (from Tuatha Dé Danann Collection): 

Also created from Boru is the Nuada Collection, a range of sterling silver inspired from the legend of the Tuatha Dé Danann – translated as “Tribe of Danu.” They were a tribe of the Goddess Danu, the mother of land and earth. They were a race of God-like people gifted with supernatural powers, who ruled Ireland over four thousand years ago. 

The Nuada Range by Boru has taken inspiration from the Celtic legend of the bronze Sword of Nuada - a powerful weapon capable of inflicting only mortals blows. The spirit of the strong has been carved and etched into each piece of Nuada jewelry - success and victory are awarded to the strong in spirit!

Retailers can check out these and other top collections at BORU JEWELRY.

Solvar

Solvar is an award-winning jewelry manufacturer crafting Irish jewelry since 1941. It is a third-generation family-run Irish business combining a passion for Ireland with a love of jewelry.

Each piece of Solvar jewelry is individually designed, drawing inspiration from Ireland’s rich heritage and unique icons to provide a cherished memory of Ireland. Their master designers craft each piece in the finest detail to the highest standard, using centuries-old craftsmanship skills.

Among the Celtic Knot and the Shamrock symbols, the Claddagh is one of their most treasured symbols. 

Celebrating love, loyalty, and friendship, Solvar have been handcrafting Claddagh rings since the very beginning. A gift of love, crafted in Ireland by their skilled goldsmiths, it echoes a tale of devotion retold over centuries.

Once upon a time, so the story goes, a young Irish sailor was captured and sold into slavery. Far from his native land, he held the memory of his sweetheart deep in his heart. He never forgot her. Years later, on his safe return to Galway, his gift to her was a Claddagh ring. Forged with the skills he had learned during his imprisonment, it was a token of his enduring love.

“With these hands, I give you my heart, and I crown it with my love.”
