Our Story

About Us

Ardmore Jewellery is a family business run by Marie and Isabel, a mother/daughter team. Armed with passion and enthusiasm, they are dedicated to creating high quality, classic pieces to be worn and treasured for generations. Founded in 2015 by Marie, Ardmore Jewellery is a proud Irish company inspired by the natural beauty of Ardmore and every piece handmade in their studio by the sea.

Our Jewellery

Every piece of jewellery is made with love in our studio by the sea. We wanted every piece to stand the test of time and so decided to work with only solid gold and silver pieces. We also source as much fair-trade gold and eco silver as we possibly can. It is important to us that all our materials and gems reach us in the most ethical way possible. We use cultured pearls in a lot of classic pieces; they are the perfect choice for timeless luxurious jewellery. All our pieces are finished to the very highest standard and then sent to Dublin Castle to be hallmarked before they reach you.

    Marie

    Marie is the founder, creator and maker behind all the beautiful pieces you see on the website. Having trained in Cork, she has spent the last number of years perfecting her skills. Every day for Marie begins with a swim in the Atlantic Ocean (even in winter) with her fantastic friends. A keen water skier, wind surfer and sailor from an early age, you’ll find her out on the water or walking the beaches and cliffs of Ardmore (when she’s not in her studio).

    “I’ve always loved jewellery, from playing with my mother’s jewellery box to rooting around at antique auctions. After spending my childhood summers in Ardmore I was lucky enough to make my home here and set up my studio. To be able to step outside my front door or look out a window and see the sea keeps me constantly inspired.”

    Isabel

    Before joining Ardmore Jewellery, Isabel studied fashion design at The Grafton Academy in Dublin, instilling in her a love of design and creativity. She grew up around entrepreneurs, both family and friends who inspired and encouraged her that no dream was too big. Taking her love of business, design, photography and social media to Ardmore Jewellery was the perfect fit. She spends her time between Ardmore and Dublin, enjoying the best of both worlds.

    Minnie

    Our newest member of the team is Minnie! Minnie is a Newfoundland puppy who will very soon turn into a very large lady! She lives for cuddles and affection and follows us around all day like a shadow! She has adapted to life at Ardmore Jewellery very well, accompanying us on our daily swims and walks. She’ll do anything for a pat on the head and a treat! She has us wrapped around her not so little paws!

Supporting a Worthy Cause

RNLI Lifeboats

Our relationship with the RNLI started many years ago. I was out boating with my family as a young child when we got into difficulty. I’ll never forget the sense of fear for myself and the rest of my family. The RNLI came to our rescue just in time and brought us all safely to shore. They’ve been very close to our hearts ever since.

The RNLI provides lifeboat search and rescue services, seasonal lifeguards, flood rescue response and water safety education. Living on the coast, we are always aware of the great and brave work done by the volunteers to keep every sea user safe. We are delighted to donate a percentage of each sale to such a worthy cause.
