Solvar Irish Jewellery
The shamrock is cherished by Irish people everywhere and is worn by all nationalities around the world on Saint Patrick’s Day. In ancient times, a tiny three-leafed plant bloomed far and wide and laid a carpet of green all over the limestone hills of Ireland. This little plant was even said to warn of an approaching storm by turning up its leaves.
The legend of the Shamrock lives on today in Solvar Jewellery's quality Irish craftsmanship. Inspired by ancient Celtic traditions and expertly created in Ireland, their award-winning jewellery reflects our country’s rich cultural heritage.
Why not celebrate your Irish heritage this St Patrick’s Day with one of their beautiful sterling silver shamrock pendants or add a bit of sparkle with their green cubic zirconia shamrock ring.
