The Aran Sweater. . . and why it’s a favourite among celebrities
It’s that time of year again where we celebrate our little island, and raise a glass to St. Patrick. All around the world, festivities will kick off as descendants from the Emerald Isle (or just those who want to join in on the fun) honour the history and rich culture of Ireland. And for those heading to our shores to celebrate, the party is an even bigger affair.
A glance at the calendar might tell you that summer has arrived – but really, you don’t need a calendar to know that much. Peeking outside the window, listening out for tell-tale noises, or even sniffing the air is enough to confirm it; the sights, sounds and smells all point towards the changing of the seasons.
Irish jewellery has always been rich in symbolism. From the iconic Tara Brooch to the ornate Broighter Collar, there’s a unique style and common themes that give it a distinctively Celtic feel.
