This Gold Plated Shamrock Cameo Pendant is a beautiful way to show your Irish heritage and love of Irish jewelry. The gold plated base in a spiral design frames a cameo-style shamrock center in pink ceramic. This antique style dates as far back as the classical period of Greece and Rome and became particularly popular during the 18th and 19th centuries in Western Europe in women’s brooches.
The lovely raised shamrock design of the pendant holds great significance. Legend has it that the shamrock was used by St. Patrick to teach the pre-Christian Irish about the holy Trinity, using its three leaves connected to a single stem to symbolize the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three parts of the same God. Since then, the shamrock has become one of the most recognizable symbols of Ireland and sprigs of shamrocks are today worn by politicians and citizens alike every St. Patrick’s Day to honor this history.
Wear this necklace any time you seek to connect to your Irish ancestry, or give it as a special gift for Christmas, birthdays, or first communion.
