An emerald gemstone ring is a perfect personal accompaniment to one of the world’s most festive celebrations – St. Patrick’s Day. Why so? Well, obviously because it’s green. Also, it may just help hide you from those cranky leprechauns!
St. Patrick’s Day is originally an Irish celebration in honor of Ireland’s patron saint. During the 18th and 19th centuries, many Irish immigrants moved to different parts of the world, most notably to America and Great Britain. These immigrants became the catalyst for St. Patrick’s Day to be celebrated outside of Ireland. Today, St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated across the globe by the Irish and non-Irish alike.
Lavish parades, awesome parties, and the wearing of green mark the feast of St. Patrick everywhere. With a sparkling emerald gemstone ring on your finger, your festive green outfit is complete!
Why green? They say the original color for St. Patrick’s Day was blue, but somewhere along the way it got changed to green. It was thought to be more appropriate, because it is the color of spring, and is reminiscent of the lush Irish greenery. Green is also one of the colors on the Irish flag, and Ireland is called the “Emerald Isle.” See how an emerald gemstone ring perfectly harmonizes with the Irish celebration?
You could even kick it up a notch and feel even more Irish by wearing a shamrock-shaped ring. How about an emerald gemstone ring in the shape of a heart from Povada? Folklore has it that wearing green supposedly helps as camouflage so the leprechauns don’t see you, and you can follow them in secret to find their treasure. Who knows, right?
Wear an emerald gemstone ring, go step-dancing, maybe even find a leprechaun – because on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone is Irish! Enjoy!
