Irish Rosaries / Jewelry

Irish rosaries and Irish jewelry offer a distinct style and appeal that is unmatched by traditional pieces. The rosaries feature stunning beads made of semi precious stones in colors that have long been associated with the island nation. Crucifixes are often designed in the Celtic style with more detail than is typically seen.

Irish rosaries are not only beautiful and functional, they are also filled with the interesting history of the country's faithful population. Long ago, Irish law made use of a rosary an unlawful act. To counter the injustice, rosaries were transformed into smaller, more easily concealed units. These reduced rosaries were known as penal rosaries and the abbreviated designs still persist to this day despite the current open and welcoming climate of the country.

Other pieces of Irish jewelry, such as pendants, portray the pride and sense of self-sufficiency many of the nation's residents feel. Many medals are imprinted with saints that hail from Ireland, allowing you to feel closeness to a Holy figure while paying tribute to Ireland.
