Sweet and feminine, these silver filigree shamrock earrings take a creative spin on traditional shamrock earrings by incorporating exquisite filigree patterns that take the shamrock from casually festive to black-tie elegant.
Ancient Celts held anything involving the number three sacred. This meant that relationships like those between mind, body, and spirt or between earth, fire, and water were regarded as highly significant. Anything that naturally occurred in sets of three, like the three leaves of the shamrock, was also specially recognized. The shamrocks three leaves were used to symbolize mother, maiden, and crone, the threefold nature of the Triple Goddess. Druids also believed that this flower had protective powers that could ward off danger.
The extraordinary design of these earrings starts with a base of sterling silver, which is crafted into a lovely open shamrock figure. Inside of each of the three heart-shaped leaves is a 14-carat, yellow gold-plated filigree bead pattern. This pattern stems from the bottom of each leaf and curls up and around symmetrically on both sides of the leaf, resembling a celestial butterfly inhabiting the frame of the leaf.
These earrings will effortlessly take any outfit from day to night. The two-tone color and texture contrast of these earrings will complement any color and any gold or silver necklace, watch, or bracelet.
