Today. as part of my ‘Support Irish’ series, I am showcasing a selection of small independent Irish jewellery makers and sellers. Lockdown is set to continue for the foreseeable future, so it is fair to say that we all need a little lift. If we have to stay at home, why not do it in style and bring some new bling to those zoom calls!
It is more important now than ever that we make it our duty to support local businesses. It is estimated that over €4 billion was spent by Irish consumers on International online stores last year. My mission with this ‘Support Irish’ series is to showcase the best that Irish retail has to offer while educating consumers and making it simple and easy for you to support local businesses.
I was inundated with options to choose from while researching this post, so much so that I doubled my selection from 10 to 20! So there really is no reason for us not to support Irish when it comes to beautiful handcrafted jewellery. Here are my top 20 picks, catering for a range of different styles and price points:

As mentioned I really did have an abundance of great businesses to choose from when researching this post so we should be very proud of the fantastic selection of great jewellery that we have on our doorstep. And this was just a taster. Are there other great small Irish jewellery brands that I have left out? Have you a great experience with one of these Irish brands that you can share? I would love to hear from you so that we can all ‘Support Irish’ together.
