Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone from the INTA Gems family!! Hope you’re all sporting different shades of green. :)

A little fact about the green shamrock is it is the symbol of Ireland and a three-leafed old white clover. It is symbolic for the Irish Christian’s because it represents the Holy Trinity. Not to be confused with the four-leaf clover, which is very uncommon and is symbolic of good luck.
Legend has it, the four-leaf clover brings those who find it good luck. According to legend, each leaf represents something different: the first stands for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.Although it is extremely rare to find a four-leaf clover, a better alternative for St. Patrick’s Day is to wear various gorgeous shades of green (After all, you wouldn’t want to get pinched ;P). A perfect option without going green overboard is wearing a magnificent green colored gemstone piece of jewelry. Whether it be earrings, a necklace, a pendant, a bracelet, or even a ring. You can truly express hope, faith, love, and luck with green gemstone jewelry. And at INTA Gems, we offer some of the best green colored gemstone options for every shade of green. Some great options are:

1. Green Sapphires– which offer great durability because of it’s high hardness scale rating.
2. Alexandrites– which change color under different lighting to various shades of greens, browns, reddish violets, and other wine colors.
3. Peridots– which is a gorgeous green yellow colored gemstone that reminds us of the springtime.

4. Emeralds– which is a largely popular shade of green that many people seek. And in the true St. Patty’s Day theme Ireland is often referred to as the “Emerald Isle” by mainly Americans.

Hope this gives you some ideas in wearing green. And again, have a great St. Patrick’s Holiday! Have fun and stay safe everyone! :)
