My Story

With admiration for semi-precious stones and their vibrant colours, ILgemstones jewellery represents an elegant and modern Irish jewellery brand created by Irena Leahy.

Irena Leahy ILgemstones

My designs range from delicate to statement pieces that reflect my taste in jewellery. Brought up by the Adriatic coast, where colours of the blue sea, white rocks and green pine trees shine brighter under the sun are deeply rooted in my memory. The colours, richness and diversity of nature, from the Mediterranean brightness to the picture-perfect green Irish countryside are my leading inspiration.

The new lifestyle led me to pursue my interests and complete a photography course and several jewellery courses resulting in the ILgemstones Irish jewellery brand. ILgemstones is my expression of the world of colour, form and texture.

I hope you like it!
