A classic Irish motif, the Shamrock has been recognised as the symbol of Ireland for centuries. It is said that Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, used the shamrock to describe the Holy Trinity - The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit - each represented by a leaf.
The Celtic designs seen on our products are taken from the Kells manuscripts, the most famous Irish artefact. Celtic symbols and designs have been around for centuries, and were first found on Ogham stones, in manuscripts drawn/written by the monks or in old monasteries around Ireland.
In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt refused to kill a bear he and his team found in the forest. This act of kindness is what inspired the "teddy bear"! Kids across the world have grown to love teddy bears, and this design is perfect for a newborn child or for a christening.
The design is that of the Claddagh taken from the famous love symbol designed in the town of Claddagh, Co. Galway by Richard Joyce back in the year 1689. The design is often used for wedding rings as it is based on the ring that Richard made for his bride to be. The symbolisms are "hands for friendship", "heart for love" and "crown for loyalty".
