Spotlight on Boru
Boru, located in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains is an award winning Irish & Celtic jeweler owned and operated by Paul & Lisa O’Neil.
After two centuries of Viking domination, Brian Boru became the last High King of all Ireland in 1002. His patriotism and personal sacrifice brought warring clans together, under one king, for the only time in Irish history.
This was a time of unsurpassed glory, prosperity and happiness. Boru earned his name as Brian of the Tributes’ by collecting monies from the Chieftains of Ireland and using it to restore monasteries and places of learning that had been destroyed during the invasions. Capable and energetic, Brian Boru established himself as a patron of the arts and learning, and presided over a period of great craftsmanship of jewelry, incredible manuscripts and intricate stone masonry.
Brian Boru ruled until 1014, when he died during the successful defense of Ireland against Norse invaders during the Battle of Clontarf in Dublin.
Inspired by Ireland’s last great king, and with a desire to replicate the values, heritage, skills and craftsmanship that go into making exquisite handmade Celtic jewelry, Boru named themselves after the King. Boru continues to create pieces of jewelry that are handcrafted in Ireland, beautiful in design and of the finest quality.
Boru Jewelry produces its range of jewelry in all precious metals, 10k, 14k, 14k white, 18k, 18k white, platinum and Sterling Silver.
Popular collections include The Celtic Warrior Collection, Signature Collection, Faith Collection, Ogham Collection, Gaelic, Celtic, Trinity & Claddagh.
