St. Patrick’s Day is nearly upon us! Ireland is often called “The Emerald Isle,” and that’s why so many people like to sport their emerald gemstone jewelry on March 17th. How did Ireland get that nickname? Well, if you’ve ever flown into Ireland, you’ll see a sparkling green landscape out your window that stretches virtually as far as the eye can see. Ireland’s climate provides an abundance of rain, sunshine, and rainbows—and all of that contributes to the lush green landscape of the Emerald Isle. We’re sure you’ll love some of our “lucky” St. Patrick’s Day pieces.
It’s been said that St. Patrick used the three leaves of the shamrock to illustrate the Catholic belief in the Holy Trinity. Green shamrocks are abundant in Ireland. In fact, green shamrocks are customary gifts from Ireland to the United States on St. Patrick’s Day. We love the lustrous green of these sweet little plants, and that’s why they remind us of the emerald gemstone.
