Of life’s most precious jewelry pieces, lockets are held most dear. It is a gift often received at a young age that one can reminisce on later on in life. This sweet, heart-shaped locket of the most brilliant sterling silver features the art of four festive shamrocks springing up from the bottom to the top in a playful display. The mix of Irish imagery and childish treasure will combine to create one truly memorable gift. Approximately 3/4 in x 4/5 in on an 18 in chain.
St. Patrick is said to have used the shamrock as a symbol for God in his early sermons. He held up the three-leafed green plant and explained that like each part of the shamrock, God was three individuals that come together to work as one perfect being. He used a piece of our physical earth to connect to the spiritual life of Christians. The example has been passed down through Irish culture and art, making it one of the most iconic symbols of the Emerald Isle.
In life, we suffer through troubles, trials and heartbreaks. When the cloudy days come, it is always comforting to look back on easier times. The gift of a locket for a young lad or lady will be a jewelry piece they will hold onto, and can look to in times where comfort is needed. A reminder of childish innocence will warm any heart of age and experience.
