In nineteenth century Ireland, “wearing the green” of a shamrock was a symbol of rebellion against English rule. When Ireland became a free state in 1922, the connection between shamrocks and national identity was cemented; these days, everyone recognizes the shamrock as a symbol of Ireland. If you’re an Irish rebel at heart, a shamrock pendant is a must-have symbol of Irish heritage. Biddy Murphy’s shamrock necklaces vary from sparkling green to a subtle sterling silver (to blend in among the English when needed) and are made in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. Clover necklaces make wonderful gifts for any feisty Irish woman in your life. Don’t miss out on a chance to illustrate your Irish roots with an iconic shamrock pendant!
