I know you love the Celtic Claddagh symbol as much as I do, and to celebrate Christmas this year, I have a very special Sterling Silver Claddagh necklace adorned with Swarovski® Crystals as a prize for one lucky reader to win.
ShanOre, an Irish based jewelry company, graciously sponsored this prize for readers of Irish American Mom.
Before I share the details of how to enter to win this beautiful necklace and eternal emblem of love, friendship and loyalty, let me share the story of ShanOre and introduce you to their magnificent collection of Irish wedding jewelry
Introducing ShanOre Celtic Jewelry
ShanOre is an Irish company whose beautiful Celtic jewelry is designed, produced and hall marked right in Ireland's capital city, Dublin.
Their magnificent collections celebrate Irish culture, and often use iconic symbols of my homeland, such as the Claddagh and the Trinity Knot.
As designers and manufacturers of handcrafted jewelry ShanOre's artists, goldsmiths and silversmiths pay incredible attention to detail to create pieces that reflect the romance and magic of Ireland.
Each piece is crafted after many hours of design, prototyping and testing. Designers envision unique pieces that celebrate traditional symbols of Ireland or beloved ancient landmarks from around the island.
Some are head turning statement pieces, others are simple, yet captivating. But all of Shanore's pieces display a little piece of our Irish heritage and allow us celebrate the pride and joy we feel in our Irish culture.
I love the company's name which comes from Irish or Gaelic.
"Sean," pronounced "shan," means old.
"Ór," pronounced "ore," means gold.
And so, this company's name is "Old Gold" in Irish. I think this is a beautiful and expressive use of our ancient language. Nice job on choosing your company's name, ShanOre.
ShanOre's Bridal Range:
Romance and magic are in the air at Christmas time, so I thought this would be a prefect time to highlight some of the beautiful bridal designs created by ShanOre.
The holidays are also a wonderful, romantic time to pop the question.
For those who are planning to get engaged to start 2017 off in romantic style, I think you'll enjoy exploring how Celtic designed jewelry can be a perfect emblem of love and marriage.
ShanOre's Celtic bridal ideas are truly unique and rich in meaning and symbolism.
ShanOre has an amazing collection of Celtic design engagement rings. These rings symbolize the Irish history and heritage you may bring to your marriage.
If you are in search of Celtic bridal ideas then check out ShanOre's free Celtic Engagement and Wedding guide.
Ireland's symbols and ancient Celtic imagery are eternally romantic.
Unbroken, interlacing lines are features of Celtic knot work, and perfectly epitomize the unity underlying a solid marriage that endures throughout time.
The Claddagh's hands, heart and crown symbolize friendship, love and loyalty the cornerstones of a loving life.
These are the symbols that adorn ShanOre's Celtic wedding bands, eternal reminders of the sacred and solid commitment that is marriage.
Perhaps a newly crafted engagement ring is not for you and you would prefer to combine the old with the new.
If you already own a gemstone, passed down through the generations that holds great family sentimental value, then a Celtic design ring mount might be the perfect way for you to create the ideal engagement ring.
ShanOre carries an extensive range of Celtic ring mounts.
And so, if you will be hanging the mistletoe this Christmas to surprise your loved one with a dazzling ring, then remember Shanore has crafted some spectacular rings with a Celtic twist.
Whether you are planning to pop the question, or have been married for years and years, I wish you a very romantic Christmas, as you curl up by the fire.
Shanore is proud to offer an extensive range of jewelry featuring dazzling Swarovski© crystals. And good news - our prize has been specially selected from this elegant range.
Our Christmas giveaway is for a classic Sterling Silver Celtic Claddagh pendant encrusted with Swarovski© crystals.
The Claddagh, consists of two hands of friendship, cradling a heart of love, beneath a crown of loyalty.
The dangling Claddagh pendant is encircled by an intertwining Celtic braid.
What truly sets this piece off, is how the arc of the Claddagh is embellished with Swarovski© crystals.
One lucky winner will win this beautiful pendant.
