Welcome to Lorimat, voted Ireland’s Best Wedding Jewellers two years in a row. 

Lorimat Kilkenny Showroom

At Lorimat, we are famed for our exquisite collection of vintage engagement rings, wedding rings and eternity rings. We have also been dedicated entirely to our customers since we first opened our doors in medieval Kilkenny over two decades ago.

Rita Shanahan

Rita Shanahan who owns Lorimat is passionate about helping customers choose their perfect heirloom while making the process more than just a transaction but a memorable experience.  

We know that choosing an engagement ring is a huge moment in a person's life, and we do everything we can to ensure that our customers feel as special as the moment deserves. When you book an appointment with Lorimat, you can make yourself comfortable as together we explore the various styles, metals and precious gemstones that suit you best. We will carefully consult with you about what appeals and what is likely to suit your lifestyle. Bring your partner, a friend, a relative or come alone. If you have an idea for a bespoke engagement ring, we will be all too happy to help you realise your dream. You may even be surprised by the ring you eventually fall in love with!

We also know how hectic wedding planning can be. Selecting your wedding rings -the symbols of everlasting love between you and your partner - should be an enjoyable experience, free of hassle. Relax in the knowledge that once you enter the sanctuary of our private showroom, you will thoroughly enjoy this unique time together. We can guide you towards what we believe will suit you and your engagement ring best. We can help hesitant partners who may have never tried on a ring before to choose the one that suits them and their lifestyle the best. 

When choosing an eternity ring, you can expect the exact same level of service from Lorimat. An eternity ring is usually given to a partner on a memorable occasion, such as a wedding anniversary or the birth of a child, and by this point our clients usually have a firm idea of the type of style they want. During these consultations we take everything into account, and whether you have your heart set on a ring to match your engagement and wedding ring or you want something completely different, we’ll make sure you leave here with the perfect addition.

Our range of jewellery also includes some distinctive pieces, such as our engraved pendants and chains, our heirloom birthstone rings, and the eternally classic pearl necklaces. If you love art deco style pieces then our Chicago Marcasite collection will be right up your street. If you are planning a surprise proposal, then our promise rings might be what you need before committing to an engagement ring. 

To discuss things in more detail, please book in an appointment to either meet with us in person or online. We look forward to helping you find the perfect piece of jewellery!
