When Irish Eyes are Smiling, They're Looking at Horse Jewelry

Posted

HRSC0157With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, there are two things we could be doing at this point. The first is gathering up all the traditional fixings of a fine Irish feast - you can never have too much corned beef and cabbage, as far as I'm concerned! - or we could take some time to talk about our favorite subject: fine horse jewelry.

The Irish have loved horses from the dawn of time. At the same time, they've always been known as amazing artisans, particularly their Celtic knotwork designs. These two elements come together beautifully in the Sterling Silver Celtic Horse Pin.

Epona, the Celtic goddess of horses, mules, and donkeys, was one of very few Celtic deities to 'cross over' and enjoy wide spread popularity throughout the Roman Empire. It just goes to show that the love of horses brings people together everywhere.

The trio of horses with intertwined legs is a classic design long associated with Epona. It's stylish, elegant and graceful, which makes it the perfect choice for the horsewoman. It looks great on your lapel and more than a few of our customers have adopted it as their signature piece of fine horse jewelry.

Priced at a budget-pleasing $72, the Sterling Silver Celtic Horse pin is the perfect treat to give yourself this St. Patrick's Day. And if you want to share the joy of the season by giving a pin to your best friend, sister, cousin, Mom, riding teacher, coach, or kid as well, we promise that we won't mind a bit!

With that being said, we leave you with an old Irish 'blessing' that might just make you laugh:

May those who love us love us. And those that don't love us, May God turn their hearts. And if He doesn't turn their hearts, May he turn their ankles, So we'll know them by their limping.
