Irish Claddagh Cufflinks
ShamrockGift.com’s collection of men’s cufflinks has a wide range of Irish designs, including the Claddagh and the Celtic knot in its various forms. The Claddagh design is one of Ireland’s more recent (relatively speaking) national symbols. Comprised of two hands holding a crown-topped heart, it symbolizes love in all its forms and all its manifestations. The hands represent friendship, the heart signifies love, and the crown symbolizes loyalty, the three aspects combining to form a circle, indicating the eternal nature of love and life
Celtic Knot Cufflinks
The Celtic knot is also a treasured Irish form, unique to Ireland. Irish monks used to illuminate their religious manuscripts with artwork that could more elegantly illustrate the themes of the texts they were transcribing to a population where reading and writing were restricted only to the highest of classes. The Celtic knot proliferated in this era, and was an easy symbol to understand, signifying the eternal nature of the universe and the interconnectivity of all within the known world. It is at once a knot that can never be untied and can never be tied because, in the real world, knots must have beginnings and ends. But in art, a trick of the pen can more deeply capture the philosophy of the infinite.
Trinity Knot Cufflinks
Out of this design arose the Trinity knot, so called for its three points, which eventually came to represent the Christian Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But this was only after the island’s conversion to Christianity. Prior to that, the trinity knot represented the ancient beliefs that all life was composed of earth, water, and air, as well as the personal trinity of mind, body, and soul. The trinity knot is one of Ireland’s most recognizable symbols and is as much a secular reference to an ancient druidic past, as a contemporary representation of religious devotion.

How and Why to wear Irish Cufflinks?
Cufflinks harken back to a time of greater formality in men’s fashion, when shirts were sold without collars and cuffs. These accessories had to be literally linked to the base shirt, thus, the cufflink was born. Today, French cuff shirts are a hallmark of high-class fashion, and only the most formal of shirts have them. Yet within that formality, the cufflink offers one of the formal man’s rare occasions to show off personal style and wear some jewelry. There’s nothing quite like pulling up your jacket sleeve to reveal a startling cufflink that will be the talking point of the evening wherever you are. And without signature Irish Celtic cufflinks, you’ll never run out of talking points, especially for someone who knows a thing or two about Ireland.
