Delve into the captivating realm of our sister brand, Children of Lir’s Sterling Silver Collection, a treasured assortment with a legacy of over 25 years, blending craftsmanship and storytelling. This collection, showcasing intricately crafted ‘Swan’ pieces, pays homage to the evocative Irish legend of the Children of Lir.
The tale unfolds with Lir, his wife Aobh, and their four children, weaving a narrative of love, jealousy, and enduring transformation. Following Aobh’s passing, Lir remarries Aoife, who initially adores the children but succumbs to jealousy, casting a spell that metamorphoses them into four white swans at Lake Derravarragh in County Westmeath.
Enduring the elements for four centuries, the enchanted swans navigated the Sea of Moyle between Ireland and Scotland and later settled in Erris, County Mayo. Their once vibrant existence turned into a saga of cold and misery, capturing the essence of Irish folklore.
Their final sojourn led them to Sídh Fionnachaidh in County Armagh, discovering their old home desolate and solitary. A meeting with the compassionate Christian Missionary, St. Mochaomhóg, in Erris marked a turning point as the swans were treated with kindness and warmth.
Ultimately, the enchantment dissipated, transforming the swans into three withered old men and an old woman. St. Mochaomhóg baptised them, and they peacefully passed away, finding their eternal rest together. The Children of Lir Sterling Silver Collection beautifully encapsulates this timeless tale, inviting you to adorn yourself with pieces that embody not just artistic elegance but also the enduring spirit of Irish mythology.

Ordered the tree of life pendant
Ordered the tree of life pendant. Arrived really quickly. Absolutely love it, it is beautiful. Only slight criticism is the chain. The catch was really stiff to use at first and a feel it is a bit flimsy.
Our experience with service was…excellent
Our experience with service was excellent start to finish. We had no problems but part of that is because they know what they’re doing and they do it well. We got prompt and regular responses and updates and everything was efficient and well managed!
A lovely company to deal with.
The quality of their products is exquisite and I would recommend them without question.
Fantastic dealings with House of Lor.
Vicki was very attentive answering messages outside of working hours. My ring was ordered and very quickly delivered. The packing is second to none, beautifully presented. I love the fact I have some Irish gold and there is a Cert of Authenticity to prove this. Highly recommend shopping here, I know I will be a return customer. Thank you for my most beautiful ring.

Beautiful piece of jewellery
Beautiful piece of jewellery, lovingly packaged. Fast delivery and great communication. I have one very happy daughter.😀😀
I purchased the White Gold Shamrock Band. More stunning in reality than in the picture! I am so pleased with it. I love it! So different from any other jewellery I came across when looking for a shamrock ring after days of trawling the sites on the internet. I am so lucky to have found it! I received a first class customer service from start to finish! Forwarding me a 10% voucher when I did not receive it automatically and chasing the delivery company when my item appeared “stuck” upon entry into the UK! Cannot praise House of Lor enough as they went above and beyond from purchase to delivery. Always at the end of an email to resolve any issues for me. I would definitely recommend House of L’Or and I will definitely be purchasing from them again in the future. Well worth the five stars! Thank you. Alison
Everything I could’ve wanted in one piece of jewellery
The bracelet was perfect. Love everything about it and my dealing with House of Lor. From the beautiful presentation, the certificate of authenticity, the Irish mined gold, the intricate pattern from the Ardagh Chalice to the Hibernia hallmark – tis truly a piece of Ireland that I’ll treasure and wear with pride. Couldn’t have asked for more. Just perfect!
