Solvar is an award-winning jewellery manufacturer crafting Irish jewellery since 1941. We are a third-generation, family-run, proudly Irish business combining our passion for Ireland with our love of jewellery. Since our humble beginnings on No. 10 Harcourt Street, Solvar has grown to a 50 strong company, exporting beautiful Irish jewellery worldwide.
Each piece of Solvar jewellery is individually designed, drawing inspiration from Ireland’s rich heritage and unique icons such as the Claddagh, the Celtic Knot, the Shamrock, the Harp and the Celtic Cross all have a story to tell from centuries past. Our master designers have carefully crafted these icons into timeless pieces of jewellery to continue this rich cultural legacy. We design and create our Celtic and Irish inspired jewellery pieces with love and care in Dublin and deliver worldwide.
We love Dublin
We love where we are from. The Dublin of 80 years ago when the company was founded was a very different place to what it is now, but we are still here. Dublin is full of great pubs, vibrant culture, great shops, amazing food and the best Guinness in the world. This is the city of the world-famous Trinity College, Stephen’s Green, beautiful Christ Church and historic Dublin Castle, where our pieces are hallmarked. When you buy Solvar, you are getting a little piece of Dublin, Ireland, from our family to yours.
Proud of our history
Nearly 80 years ago, when Gustaf Obernik founded his jewellery business based at No.10 Harcourt Street in Dublin, he could hardly have imagined what it would become.
Our people are everything, and they love what they do. We have some of the best goldsmiths and master craftspeople in Ireland working to create beautiful pieces in our Dublin studio to go out all over the world. Our quality pieces are produced to the highest standards and hallmarked by the Assay Office in Dublin Castle.
