About the Maker
As a family business, Boru understands the special place that jewelry holds in the hearts of families around the world, and so they're committed to creating exquisite pieces that will be treasured forever. Founded in the mid 1980s as 'Celtic & Heraldic', the company was a pioneer in crafting Irish heritage products, being the original designers of the ‘Mo Anam Cara’ ring and the first manufacturer to use the Claddagh symbol on a wedding band.
In 2003 the company was reborn under the husband and wife team of Lisa and Paul O’Neill as Boru Jewelry, though it kept the majority of its original skilled craftspeople. The name was inspired by Brian Boru, the last High King of Ireland who also established himself as a patron of the arts and learning, presiding over a period of great craftsmanship of jewelry, incredible manuscripts and intricate stone masonry.
Since then, Boru has designed high profile personal pieces for President Obama and Hollywood elite such as the one and only Whoopi Goldberg.
They have continued to embody the values, heritage, skills and craftsmanship that go into making exquisite handmade jewelry, making them a worthy successor to Brian Boru's title!
