Mouth-blown cut crystal has been a uniquely Irish industry since the 17th century. These sparkling earrings showcase sparkling cut crystal gems, set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. Handcrafted at Killarney Crystal, a third-generation family run business based in Dublin.


Handcrafted in Ireland. 3/4"H x 3/8"W.


Within a century of Englishman George Ravenscroft’s 1676 patent on lead crystal, the first crystal factory in Ireland was opened, and the industry has flourished ever since. Native talent and outside political events combined to make Irish cities like Waterford, Cork, and Dublin crystal-producing centers: First, when Protestants fled France after the Edict of Nantes was repealed, taking with it substantial civil rights, many talented craftsmen ended up in England and Ireland. Second, wood was banned as a fuel for glassmaking in the 18th century, leaving port cities who had easier access to coal deliveries able to keep evolving glassblowing techniques.


The techniques have changed little over the centuries, with highly skilled artisans still using molds to blow traditional and contemporary forms. Once the form is finished and cooled, master cutters use diamond-tipped instruments to add the wedge cuts that are a hallmark of the finest Irish cut crystal.

Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

Irish Wool Military Cardigan
Irish Wool Military Cardigan
(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters
This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.
Available sizes: Medium, Large, XLarge

Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 8 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

The Golden Horn is the name of an approximately 4-mile-long inlet whose harbor has sheltered boats for thousands of years, through four powerful empires. Its picturesque views have inspired painters, poets, and photographers—Leonardo da Vinci even designed a bridge for it in 1502.
