The Luck of the Irish
Posted on 23 February 2016
St. Patrick’s Day is one to celebrate for many people around the world, whether or not you are Irish. What began as a small, religious holiday has blossomed into a day of celebration: attending parades, eating corned beef and cabbage and wearing something green. No matter how you commemorate March 17, our “Irish Collection” can help you ring in the day in style.
The shamrock has become synonymous with St. Patrick’s Day. As legend has it, Patrick explained the Holy Trinity—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit—with a three-leafed shamrock, according to National Geographic. Now, wearing a shamrock has become customary every March 17.
Tradition has it that you’ll get pinched if you are not wearing green, so make sure you are prepared! Show your Irish spirit with our Irish-themed Pandora-style bracelet or our Good Luck Bangle bracelet. We even have shamrock scarves!
You may see people wearing the trinity knot, also called a triquetra, on St. Patrick's Day. In contemporary Irish culture, this knot symbolizes a promising relationship of love, protection and honor. We also feature jewelry with the trinity knot, including our "Trinity and Celtic Knot Jewelry Bracelet."
Whether you are Irish or pretend to be, we can help you get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit! Click here to see our entire “Irish Collection.”
