house of lor jewellery

Irish jewellery is renowned for its beauty and craftsmanship, and House of Lor Jewellery honours it. Making jewellery is in our blood. The Pillow family have been raised designing and making Celtic jewellery for three generations.

For centuries, Irish goldsmiths have been creating stunning pieces that are steeped in history and tradition. Many pieces, luckily, discovered over the years, are now housed in the National Museum of Ireland. Irish jewellery and storytelling also go hand in hand, from the history of the Claddagh design, love, loyalty and friendship, depicted by the heart, crown and hands, to the trinity knot, representing the Holy Trinity. Today, Irish jewellery is more popular than ever, with many people opting for handcrafted pieces which have a unique character, like the Tree of life pendant, celebrating the strength to grow and the wisdom to flourish. Ancients Celts called the Celtic Tree of Life Crann bethadh; they believed it had special powers; representing how nature’s forces come together to create harmony and balance.

From simple pieces for everyday wear to showstopping pieces for special occasions, Irish jewellery has something to suit everyone. The choice is yours. 

What makes our gold so unique?

Irish gold is among the rarest and most pure in the world. Our gold comes from a small mine in Omagh, County Tyrone, which is the only commercial gold mine in Ireland. This luxurious metal is then used in tandem with sterling silver, to create stunning sterling silver and Irish gold jewellery, perfect for any occasion. Irish gold is more yellow than other types of gold, it is also more malleable, making it ideal for use in intricate designs. At House of Lor, we use the finest Irish gold with an alloy combination, which changes the colour, to produce Rose Gold. Rose gold is a soft, golden-tinged shade of pink. We do this to differentiate our Irish Gold, from yellow world gold, in our handcrafted jewellery. This makes our jewellery truly unique.
