Drop Harp Earrings Crafted in Pewter.
The Harp is the national emblem of Ireland and is still widely used today. Look for it on Irish Euro coins as well as on the label of every can and bottle of Guinness. The meaning of the Irish harp symbol embodies the spirit and essence of the Irish people and is said to represent the immortality of the soul. In fact, it was so revered that the British banned all harps (and harpists!) in the 16th century in an effort to break the symbolic tie. Needless to say the Harp survived and is now the symbol of Ireland.
