Having both cultural and religious significance, St. Patrick’s Day has become a global celebration of the Irish that lies within all of us. But beyond just the multiple celebrations, parades, and copious amounts of green beer had on this day, there are other traditions that take place that are equally as important. One of these is the wearing of the Shamrock.
The Shamrock is undoubtedly the most treasured symbol of Ireland. During the time leading up to St. Patrick’s day, shamrocks can be seen decorated, displayed, worn, and cherished by both Irish and non-Irish alike. Most notably, people wear fresh Shamrock’s on their coat lapels, as a sign of both honor and respect for the Saint.
However, it is not always possible to wear a fresh shamrock (especially for those of us who are stuck in an infinite winter.) Not to worry though, because while the snow may still cover any sight of green, there is always the shamrock lapel pin! With the high quality nature of the hard or embossed enamel technique, you can now show your shamrock pride today, tomorrow, and for many years to come.
