Gold Plate Harp Pendant with Green Enamel comes in a Gift Box. Long ago in Ireland, the sound of the Irish Harp echoed round the courts of Kings and chieftains. No feast or noble gathering was complete without a bard providing entertainment for the guests. In ancient times these wandering minstrals travelled far and wide around the country, playing for anyone who would listen. Irish harpers carried with them the legends and stories of their native land, keeping their culture alive. Such was the power of their sweet melodies that strong men might weep or be lulled to sleep. The haunting music of the harp could woo beautiful ladies or persuade their admirers to grant any favour. Today the Irish Harp still retains its power. It is recognized worldwide as the emblem of Irish national identity and pride.
