The Shamrock Cufflink
A young sprig of clover that symbolises the very essence of the Irish, in bright white and gold.
The shamrock was first mentioned in early Celtic literature and later by the Elizabethan scholar Edmund Campion, becoming a plant particularly associated with the Irish. It has links to St Patrick who used it as a metaphor for the Christian trinity, and, as an emblem of Ireland from the 18th century onwards, during the country’s long, turbulent struggle for self-determination. In this, the Irish Shamrock embodies both the beauty of Ireland and the passionate independence of the Irish.
