Company History

Specializing in handcrafted Irish Jewellery


Irish Jewellery Craft was established in 1947 by Jacob Blackman with its first premises on 43 Dawson Street, Dublin. Blackman, a qualified goldsmith and diamond setter, was born in England and after marrying his Irish wife, moved from London to Emerald Isle where he founded Irish Jewellery Craft to meet the growing demand for high quality handcrafted jewellery.

The Irish jewellery market was both challenging and exciting. It was through the expertise, the use of quality materials and the fidelity to traditional Irish design that Jacob Blackman and his small team of talented craftsmen captivated its customers and established Irish Jewellery Craft in the higher echelon of the jewellery market.
