We have been selling product from our store in Michigan and online since 2004. We have a long term view on this business and firmly believe that one way to stand out from the other sources is not necessarily by being the cheapest, but instead by offering exceptional customer service and communications. We want your business and more importantly we want to become your trusted source for all things Irish.
We want to be known for our excellent customer service and communications.

The Federation of Jewelry Manufacturers of Ireland (FJMI) have a rigorous testing procedure which we sat and passed in Dublin in January of 2008. This Jewelry Accreditation Program is designed to help members improve and increase their fine jewelry business by teaching them the skills of a retail jewelry professional involved in the selection and sale of Irish made Celtic Jewelry.

This training program gives those who qualify the skills necessary to sell jewelry to their most astute customer with confidence and ease.
HOW DO I KNOW JEWELRY IS MADE IN IRELAND?
Hallmarking is the oldest form of consumer protection. A Hallmark is your guarantee that the Irish jewelry you are purchasing has been tested at the Assay Office in Dublin Castle, located in Dublin, Ireland.
The purpose of these tests is to establish that this precious metal item is of the standard advertised. Only then is the hallmark applied to the article.
What you will see on the standard Irish Hallmark:
- A Sponsor’s mark, indicating the manufacturer of the piece
- A Standard mark certifying the precious metal content
- The fineness stated as parts per thousand or as karat age
- The location of the assay office responsible for certifying the article
In the USA 10kt is the minimum standard that may be described as gold. Sterling Silver, which is .925 parts Silver, is the silver standard in America.
