Our name was inspired by a Swiss watch found years ago in the lost and found of a jewellery store in Dublin’s City Centre. When the shop closed back in the 1980’s, the watch was kept and all these years later, we decided to create Burren Jewellery.
The tie between the name of this watch and the beautiful, rugged landscape along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way comes together in our collections. We draw inspiration from the stunning scenery in this part of the world which is uniquely Irish, raw and unusual as well as our original ‘Buren’ watch which ties us to our home near Dublin.
All our 18k gold plated jewellery has a 3 year guarantee against plating defects. Our gold plated jewellery is made of a brass base – lead, nickel and cadmium free - and is hypoallergenic. The plating with gold is 3 microns thick minimum, and 5 microns for rings with stones. In order to optimize the colour of gold over time, our plating is made of 18 karat gold with a finishing coat of 23 karat gold which prevents plating from oxidation. More than 80% of the silver and 20% of the gold used in our production come from recycling in order to limit the impact of our productions on the natural exploitation of minerals, our objective is to reduce each year our impact on natural resources.
All of our jewelry is compliant with the European REACH regulations. Our French manufacturing partner regularly conduct tests with official organizations, and is a members of the «RJC» (Responsible Jewelery Council): a recognized commitment in terms of respect for working conditions and sustainable development.
