This pendant features both a classic, smooth style and a playful energy. In the leaves of a sterling shamrock, gold-plated filigree clovers flourish, as though growing in their very own habitat. The stem of the shamrock dips away in a subtle gesture of whimsy. ShanOre also offers matching earrings to this pendant.
The Shamrock Legend
American Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson believed that Nature is a living mystery, full of symbolism. The three-lobed little plant called the shamrock is no exception. National lore claims that from the hillsides of Ireland, St. Patrick picked these green sprouts to take with him across Europe for teaching the concept of the Holy Trinity. Each lobe represented the Father, the Son, or the Holy Spirit, and the stem joined these entities into one holistic power.
Though the woman who wears this pendant may appear quite collected and traditional, she keeps some rather exciting secrets close to the vest. In truth, she is aching to venture into territory she has never experienced before. She may have just begun painting for the first time, or sent in a graduate school application; perhaps she wants to whitewater raft, or repel down the side of a cliff. The next stage in her life she will dedicate to new discoveries, to reinventing herself, and surprising everyone she knows in the process.
