Birthstone charms can be fun for everyone in a family. One idea for mothers and grandmothers, is to put together a celebration bracelet of sterling silver charms for all their children’s or grandchildren’s birthdays. Another idea is for best friends, or lovers, to exchange charms with the birthstone of each others special day. Heart shaped birthstone charms for friends, and charming little shoes for children are both available online.
The large number of Celtic/Irish charms available must surely demonstrate widespread public belief in the Luck of the Irish. A Celtic Cross design could be a good gift to give on St. Patrick’s Day, or a claddagh ring design given as a love token, perhaps on a special anniversary. Claddagh rings are traditionally worn as wedding rings, or given as love tokens, a tradition which is supposed to originate near Galway, Ireland in a small fishing village named Claddagh.
Other Irish symbols which appear on charms are of course the shamrock, one of the national symbols of Ireland, associated with St. Patrick’s use of the three leafed plant to explain the Trinity on his evangelizing mission to Ireland, and the four leafed clover, which has always been associated with good fortune.
Many Celtic and Irish charms are decorated with the interlaced and swirling Celtic art filigree which come to us from masterpiece illuminated works such as the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book Of Kells, and from chalices (Ardagh Chalice) and broaches (Tara Broach) also dating back to the time when Ireland was known as the Land of Saints and Scholars.
There is also a wide choice for those looking for religious themed charms. In most cases the Christian and Jewish faiths have the widest variety of choice. In the Christian tradition there are of course many different types of cross design available, but also saint’s figures and medals (Saints Jude, Christopher foe example), and medals of more recent revered people, including the last Pope (John Paul) and Mother Theresa. Star of David and sterling silver menorah designs are available for members of the Jewish faith.
