Ireland is killing it in the design sector, especially when it comes to jewellery.
I've been adding a few pieces to my jewellery box over the last while and I am so impressed with what I've been able to find, all made in the Emerald Isle, of course.
Here are some of my favourite Irish jewellery brands around right now:
1. Emma Larkin
Emma Larkin creates unique statement pieces that have a funky 60s vibe to them.
The earrings are lightweight (so you won’t develop saggy earlobes) quirky and colourful. Emma is based in Galway so you can find her earrings in 2 Wild Geese, Vanda Luddy Art Gallery and Galway Design Studiohouse.
If you’re in the capital, you’ll find her pieces in Omdiva on Drury Street or online.
2. Crystals And Co
Sparkles and statment pieces, Crystals and Co is a brand worth checking out if you're searching for the perfect gift.
It's pretty likely you've seen this brand on Insta as it's popular among influencers. Their crystal initials pendent is a personal fave of mine.
3. Cosmic Boulevard
Cosmic Boulevard creates pieces that are contemporary yet classic, simple yet statement-making. Judging by the name, I'm sure you've guessed already what a lot of their pieces are centred around.
Think stars, marbled rings, enchanting chains and sparkles.
4. Juvi Designs
Stunning gemstones and detailed trinkets, Juvi Jewellery is sure to catch your eye.
Juvi has a wide range of styles to suit any prefrence so you're gaurenteed to find something you love.
It's time to sparkle!
5. Rosie And Dott
Looking for a statement piece for an upcoming event? You have to check out Rosie And Dott.
They create some of the most stunning gold and silver flower crowns I've seen. This is sure to jazz up any outfit and have heads turning.
They also stock a range of embellised necklaces and earrings.
Very snazzy indeed!
Loinnir, coming from the Irish word ‘radiance’ is one of the most beautiful jewellery lines I’ve come across.
The pieces are inspired by Irish heritage and culture and have a contemporary flair.
Creator, Cara Sturgess won 2015 ‘Best Idea’ of Ireland Best Young Entrepreneur in the Leo Fingal Region and has set up her own studio in Dublin.
Cara’s handmade pieces depict the scenic landscapes, rich heritage and legends of Ireland in a new contemporary light.
Every piece has its own story to tell and it’s own piece of Ireland.
7. Alice & Blair
Alice & Blair is one of the most stunning hairband companies I've come across.
The brand was fuelled by desire to create unique, luxury and memorable pieces with the highest quality materials at a reasonable price point.
Each piece is ethically handmade using premium velvet, silk, gold plated sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones including Swarovski crystals and pearls.
I am utterly obsessed!
Enibas specialises in meaningful and magical pieces and hails from West Cork. Each piece is handcrafted in their Schull studio.
Each piece has it’s own phrase as Gaeilge, it’s subtle and gives it some extra character which I adore. It would be the perfect gift for someone who might be far from home.
9. Audacious Kitty Kat
This brand is sure to add some life to any outfit with its bold and unusual patterns, embellishment and colour.
They define themselves as a brand that “gives people the opportunity to buy quirky and different” with pieces that don’t break the bank.
10. Inner Island
If there is one piece of jewellery that I couldn't be without it's my earrings from Inner Island.
I wear them everywhere.
The Irish handcrafted jewellery company specialises in timeless contemporary pieces that are simple but stand-out and downright beautiful.
It’s super trendy and slick, not to mention you'll never get that green circle around your ears from wearing them.
Up there as one of the best things I've ever recieved.
