Do You Prefer Three Leaves or Four?

Baubles, Bling, and Symbolic Things

Faith, hope, and love…  this is what the three leaves of a shamrock signify.  It’s the symbol of Ireland and has been for centuries.  It is not to be confused with a four-leaf clover, an uncommon variation of the three-leaf clover.  One in every 10,000 clovers will have the fourth leaf… the lucky charm.

This rosy 14 karat gold bangle is made in a classic bypass style, comprised of three bands on the top.  The center one has been hand turned to create a beautiful twisted effect.  The crowning glory of this otherwise simple piece is the shamrock.  This iconic shape, made from three heart-shaped leaves, is seated at a jaunty angle on top of the bangle.  Four rose cut diamonds have been fitted to the clover, adding the perfect amount of sparkle.  Priced at $1,700 – this bracelet is perfect for daily wear and would easily become a favorite in anyone’s wardrobe.  

Pair it with one of these rings from Joe’s Special Box for an even more dazzling effect.  Remember these beauties from a few weeks ago?  Any of the three would be an ideal complement to the shamrock bangle.  With shared elements like vintage cut diamonds, and rosy gold – the common ground makes for a stellar style statement.  These pieces are available at Joden, where our motto continues to hold true…

And One for Luck

Joden Girl

Baubles, Bling, and Irish Things

Yesterday, people everywhere donned green shirts, green socks, even headbands with shamrocks bouncing on top.    Merrymaking ranged from parades to religious observances.  Even the Lenten fast has been known to be lifted in honor of  the day.  Perhaps you are also participated in the joviality of St. Patrick’s Day. 

Millions of green beers were raised in celebration of the heritage and history of Ireland.  St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. 

The shamrock became the symbol for this day when St. Patrick arrived in Ireland to share Christianity with the Irish people.  He used a young sprig of clover to explain the Holy Trinity.  The three leaves are also thought to symbolize faith, hope, and love. 

Occasionally, a clover will have a fourth leaf…  for luck.  The luck of the Irish. 

At Joden we have shamrocks with three leaves, and some with four.  These are just a few examples.  Be sure to stop by our showroom to see these little green beauties.  Until then…

May you always find blue skies above your head,

Shamrocks beneath your feet,

Laughter and joy aplenty,

Kindness from all you meet,

Good friends and kin to miss you if ever you choose to roam,

And a path that’s been cleared by angels themselves

To carry you safely home.

– An Irish Blessing
