The Shamrock is a three leaf clover, it is the national flower of Ireland and one of the county's most recognised and loved symbols. They were sacred to druids, who believed it would combat evil spirits because the three leaves formed a triad, and three was a mystical number in Celtic beliefs. St. Patrick is said to have used the shamrock leaf as a metaphor, helping illustrate the mystery of the holy trinity, to the pagans as Christianity spread through the country. The tradition of wearing and 'drowning' the Shamrock on Saint Patrick's Day can be traced back to the early 1700s. For good luck, it is usually included in the bouquet and boutonniere of an Irish bride and groom.
Our petite sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.
