Do you know why we wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Originally, blue was the color associated with this day, however, over the years, green became the favored color in honor of the lush green countryside of the Emerald Isles and the green in the Irish flag. Wearing green on this day is a tradition that started in the 17th century when people wore green ribbons and shamrocks on March 17th to honor Ireland’s patron saint. Irish immigrants in the United States carried on this tradition, believing that wearing green made them invisible to leprechauns who would pinch anyone they could see.
In keeping with the Irish tradition of wearing green, we’ve compiled our top picks in green jewels that we think you’ll love. Get ready to show your St. Patrick’s Day spirit this year (we don’t want you to get pinched!) with these lush green looks.
