It's officially the countdown to December 25! Why not treat someone special (or yourself) to an authentic Irish gift this holiday season? 

If you're struggling to decide what Christmas gift to give an Irish loved one or perhaps someone who holds Ireland close to their heart, then these fantastic retailers are here to take the stress away with their wide range of Irish jewelry and clothing pieces. 

Connemara Marble

If you are interested in ancient Celtic symbology or a piece of handcrafted, natural jewelry, then put Connemara Marble's stunning range of Celtic jewelry at the top of your Christmas wish list.

The magic and mystique of Ireland live in their "Colours of Ireland Collection". The four gemstones in this collection are emblematic of each of the four corners of Ireland and each cabochon cut stone is carefully set within hallmarked Irish sterling silver.

The Irish family business has been handcrafting their jewlery since 1945 and Stephen Walsh is a 3rd generation jewelry maker and owns and operates the oldest working quarry in Connemara Co. Galway where they hand lift their precious marble and transport it to their workshop in Dublin.  

Connemara Marble is thrilled with the news that they have been designated a Heritage Stone. One of ten stone types to be designated as such this year, Connemara Marble is now one of only 32 Heritage Stones worldwide!

No two pieces of Connemara Marble are the same, each is as unique as a snowflake. Your piece will be presented in a premium gift box and with a certificate of authenticity. Free shipping until December 31 is now on. Check out their website for more information. 

Solvar Jewellery

Solvar is an award-winning jewelry company crafting Irish jewelry since 1941. The third-generation family-run Irish business combines its passion for Ireland with its love of jewelry.

When Mr. G A Obernik founded Solvar in 1941, he began producing Celtic and Irish jewelry with just two employees. In 1972 his son Nick joined the business at No 10 Harcourt Street. The number of Solvar employees soon grew to over 40 including master craftsmen, model makers, and a design team. In 2002, grandson Marcus joined the company bringing it into the third generation. Throughout its long history and tradition going back over 78 years, Solvar has evolved to become recognized as the leader in the design and manufacture of Irish and Celtic 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 unique icons such as the Claddagh, the Celtic Knot, the Shamrock, the Harp, and the Celtic Cross all have a story to tell from centuries past. Solva's master designers have carefully crafted these icons from yesteryear into timeless pieces of jewelry to continue this rich cultural legacy. Check out their website for more information.
