This unique vintage pin is made of sterling silver, shaped like a shamrock with a stone in the center. It measures approximately 2 inches both up and down. On the back the engraving reads, “Genuine stone from grounds of Blarney Castle.” There are no hallmarks on this pin, so it was not made in Ireland. It has tested out as sterling or .925. But there’s no reason to believe the stone isn’t from Blarney Castle – but then again, whomever made it may be full of blarney! Asking $175, this is item #968.
