Authentically Irish Beginnings
Our story began over 75 years ago in 1944 in the Ringsend neighborhood of old Dublin. It was there that our small family business began handcrafting Irish jewelry. We started with a line of just eight unique gold and silver jewelry pieces for local patrons and visitors to the city.
In the 1940s every Irish jewelry item we sold was painstakingly worked by hand, just as our fine jewelry collections are today. From the start our business and reputation have been built on the high quality of what we offer, our unique jewelry collections, and on a relentless Irish commitment to meeting the needs of each individual customer from sizing to product personalization’s.
Hallmarked at Dublin Castle
Each piece of fine Gold and Silver Irish jewelry we produce is hallmarked at the Assay Office in Dublin Castle. The Dublin hallmark, in use in Ireland since 1637, is your guarantee that a jewelry item has been made using only the highest quality materials. The standard of our products is our personal guarantee to you and one that we are happy and confident to stand over.
Irish Style & Gifts Beyond Jewelry
Today, in addition to the fine Irish jewelry for which we’re known, we’re proud to also offer carefully selected collections of other high quality and distinctively Irish products. Within our Irish Gifts and Irish Clothing ranges we have luxurious Merino wool fashions for him and her, exquisite Waterford and Galway crystal, personalized Irish family heraldry and crests and other unique gift ideas, all available from our online store for international delivery.
Twenty Years Online
It’s hard to believe, it’s already been more than twenty years. Back in 1997, when much of the world had yet to discover the web, the IrishShop.com store boldly went online to better serve a fast growing list of international customers. We were among the very first authentically Irish online retailers and we’ve never looked back.
We thank you for your interest and for your trust over the years and look forward to assisting you with your next order right from the heart of Ireland.
