The Tree of Life Symbol
The Tree of Life exists in many cultures and has numerous meanings. For the Celts, the tree of life represents the concept of harmony and balance, and heaven and earth. Ancients Celts called the Tree of Life crann bethadh. They believed it had special powers. To honor the Tree of Life, Celtic people left a single, large tree in the center of fields whenever they cleared land. They called this tree crann bethadh. Christians see the Tree of Life as a symbol of purity and wisdom, and a cycle of life and the interconnectedness of all creation.
The Claddagh Symbol
The whisper of romance lingers within every Claddagh. A gift of love, Crafted in Ireland it echoes a tale of devotion retold over the centuries.
Once upon a time, so the story goes a young Irish sailor was captured and sold into slavery. Far from his native land, he held the memory of his sweetheart deep in his heart. He never forgot her. Years later, on his safe return to Galway his gift to her was a Claddagh Ring. Forged with the skills he learnt during his imprisonment, it was a token of his enduring love. “With these hands I give you my heart and I crown it with my love”. The Claddagh holds the memory of true love that can last forever.
You can add you own chapter to the story even now by how you wear it. On your right hand with its heart facing outwards, it shows that you own heart is not yet taken. Turn its heart inwards and you’ll let admirers know that love is a possibility. But if you wear it on your left hand, with its heart turned inwards towards you own, there can be no doubt. It tells the world: two hearts have joined together forever. Wear it and be part of a never ending love story.
The Irish Shamrock
In ancient times, a tiny three-leafed plant bloomed far and wide and laid a carpet of green all over the limestone hills of Ireland. The druids knew the Shamrock has mystical powers. To them its three leaves were a natural sign of a sacred number. This little plant was even said to warn of an approaching storm by turning up its leaves.
According to legend, St Patrick himself plucked a Shamrock from the ground to explain his belief in the Trinity. They say this helped convert the Irish people to Christianity. Many believed that wearing this little green sprig of green would keep them from harm.
Over the centuries that have elapsed since then, the Shamrock has become an instantly recognisable emblem of the Emerald Isle.
Whatever the truth of the legends, the shamrock is cherished by Irish people everywhere and is worn by all nationalities around the world on Saint Patricks Day, one of the great international festivals.
The legend of the Shamrock lives on today in Solvar’s quality Irish craftsmanship. Inspired by ancient Celtic traditions and expertly created in Ireland, our exquisite designs reflect the country’s rich cultural heritage.
