If you used to dance or have an Irish dancer in your life, this Sterling Silver Irish Dancer Shoes Necklace is a beautiful and thoughtful gift. Made from hallmarked sterling silver, this necklace showcases two Irish ghillies, the traditional soft Irish dance shoe most famously seen in Riverdance.
Irish dance has a long and noble tradition, renowned for its fast footwork and stick-straight upper body posture. Popularized in the 1990s by the hit show Riverdance, Irish dance has seen a bit of a revival in the past few decades and has spread far beyond Ireland itself, with schools scattered throughout the US, Canada, Australia, and even Argentina. This dance shoe necklace is a perfect way to pay tribute to its resurgence and storied history.
