Irish Jewelry Is Always in Style

Irish jewelry has made a mark on jewelry fashion. The simple and yet symbolic jewelry pieces that are available are classic and yet universal to all; men and women alike. What is great about the beautiful Irish jewelry styles is that they are not for those from Irish heritage alone. They are enjoyed by anyone that loves the beauty of the work and the meanings of the piece.

Here are a few different styles you can find to enjoy.

* The Claddagh has always been popular with those who love Irish tradition and jewelry. The Claddagh looks like two hands that circle a heart topped by a crown. This symbol signifies friendship, love and loyalty so it's popular among couples and those who are best friends.

Tradition says that if you wear the ring on your right hand with the crown turned inwards that your heart is not fulfilled and you are open for love. If you wear the crown turned outwards, you have a love interest. If you wear the ring on your left hand with the crown facing out, you have found true love.

* The Celtic knot is a popular style that you often see in earrings, pendants, rings and bracelets. The Celtic knot can also be referred to as the mystic knot, or the endless knot and it can be symbolic to many in different ways. Some believe it stands for intertwining lives or an endless life in spirit due to the knots having no beginning or end. They are beautiful in any aspect. If you love big and bold statement pieces, look for big beautiful cuff bracelets or bangle bracelets that show off the intricacies of the Celtic knot work.

* If you are looking for a more unique Irish style jewelry you can seek out pieces that are made with Connemara Marble which is very popular in Irish Christian themed jewelry. you will often find Connemara Marble in rosaries such as necklaces, bracelets and finger ring style rosaries all of which are beautiful and elegant to wear.

Enjoy lovely cultural jewelry that is beautiful and steeped in tradition for classic, beautiful style.
