Traditionally, Saint Patrick used the Shamrock to illustrate the Christian doctrine of the Holy Trinity when Christianising Ireland in the 5th century. The Shamrock took nationalistic meaning when it became an emblem for various militias during the political upheaval in the late 18th century. As the Shamrock moved from a more political to aesthetic expression of Irishness, makers of fine jewellery and china began to incorporate it into their designs. You can find the Shamrock in the most beautiful handcrafted pieces of Irish Jewellery, holding the Shamrock as the centrepiece giving a distinctive Irish authentic look.
