Solvar is an Irish family run business crafting Irish jewelry since 1941. Each piece of Solvar jewelry is individually designed, with love, care and attention.
Today I’m delighted to announce we have a lovely prize for a giveaway, sponsored by the good folks at Solvar.
This magnificent jeweled shamrock pendant is perfect for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day and it’s valued at 5.
Before I tell you the details of how to enter for a chance to win, let’s first take a look at the beautiful jewelry produced by Solvar. Let me hand you over to Fiona from Solvar….
Jewelry Inspired by Ireland’s Rich Heritage
The artisans at Solvar draw inspiration from Ireland’s rich heritage and unique icons such as the Claddagh, the Celtic Knot, the Shamrock, the Harp and the Celtic Cross, to create magnificent works of art.
Our master designers have carefully crafted these icons into timeless pieces of jewelry to continue this rich cultural legacy.
We have a large network of stockists in the US and also sell online in our giftshop.
Here are some examples of the beautiful pieces designed and created by the master jewelers of Solvar.
The Claddagh ring with it’s beautiful entwined hands, heart and crown are the inspiration for this gorgeous silver pendant.
This symbol of Ireland originated in the small village of the Claddagh which is located on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean near Galway City.
It’s probably Ireland’s most romantic symbol and a favorite design for wedding bands, and friendship gifts.
Celtic knots are intricately interwoven patterns that can symbolize the bond between people and nature, or the spiritual bond of love, or eternal life.
Celtic knots were used to decorate standing stones and were important to our Celtic ancestors.
Today they are cherished by Irish people all over the world, and are an important symbol of the link between those of Irish descent with their Irish ancestors.
Here’s a little excerpt from the Solvar website, sharing our pride in our Irish heritage.
“We are a third-generation, family-run, Irish business combining our passion for Ireland with our love of jewelry.
We love where we are from. The Dublin of 80 years ago when the company was founded was a very different place to what it is now, but we are still here.
Dublin is full of great pubs, vibrant culture, great shops, amazing food and the best Guinness in the world. This is the city of the world-famous Trinity College, Stephen’s Green, beautiful Christ Church and historic Dublin Castle, where our pieces are hallmarked.
When you buy Solvar, you are getting a little piece of Dublin, Ireland, from our family to yours.
The shamrock is a beloved and iconic symbol of Ireland. Legend has it that Saint Patrick plucked a shamrock from the earth, to explain his belief in the Holy Trinity.
Shamrocks are worn by many who believe that they will keep them safe from harm’s way.
This sterling silver Shamrock pendant is a beautiful way to share your Irish heritage and wear this iconic emblem.
The three leaves of this gorgeous shamrock are created in the shape of a heart and each leaf is surrouned by a border of cubic zirconia crystals.
Hallmarked at the Irish Assay office in Dublin Castle, this jeweled shamrock comes with an 18-inch sterling silver rolo chain.
