A remarkable piece of Irish design and craftsmanship from Solvar, this Rhodium Plated Shamrock Pendant is a timeless treasure. The shamrock itself is inset with class crystals in the leaves, while the chain and setting itself is made from a high quality base metal that has been rhodium plated for an elegant silver finish.
Shamrocks have lined the Irish landscape for millennia, so it’s no surprise that the little clover has become arguably the most recognizable symbol of Ireland and its people. Ancient druids thought that shamrocks could predict the weather and that wearing shamrocks would protect the wearer from harm. It may have been for this pre-existing significance that St. Patrick used the shamrock to illustrate the concept of the holy Trinity to convert them to Catholicism. Today, every St. Patrick’s Day, people all over the world wear sprigs of shamrocks to celebrate the country whether they’re Irish or not.
