Miss Ireland collects her custom-made jewellery from Mayo jewellers

MISS Ireland, Pamela Uba, called into Rory Quinn Jewellers in Ballina last week to collect jewellery pieces that were custom-made and donated for her to wear on stage at the Miss World competition in Puerto Rica next month.

Back home in Mayo, Children Charity of Ireland ambassador, Pamela, from Ballyhaunis, collected her 18ct yellow gold pendant set with three round brilliant diamonds which is worn on an Omega chain.

This bespoke Mayo design pendant is that of a contemporary Celtic star, consolidated with the symbols for diversity and inclusion. This represents the present day Irish lady in the modern Ireland of today.
