Each of the lucky Irish shamrocks on each earring have three Connemara marble stones carefully inset to represent the leaves.
The shamrock is one of the most iconic symbols associated with Ireland. Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Celts, using the three leaves to explain the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit enshrined in one. They are embedded with Connemara marble to create a green marble finish which enhances the shining sterling silver.
This Connemara marble, one of the world’s oldest minerals and rarest marble in the world, was mined from our quarry in Lissoughter, Recess Co. Galway. No two pieces are identical, making each piece totally unique to you. Our Sterling Silver is hallmarked at the Dublin Assay office which is located in Dublin Castle.
The earrings are presented on a shepherd’s hook back suitable for pierced ears only. They have a weight of 9 grams and measure 4cm x 2cm.
