With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, we wanted to highlight some of the best cities to celebrate in! This holiday is full of good food, good drinks, good times and of course, lots of green. We matched a pair of plugs or tunnels with each of these cities that fit the celebration going on there. Whether you’re lucky enough to be celebrating in one of these places, or just planning to celebrate at home, any of these green options will help you to avoid a pinch in style.
Boston, Massachusetts // Metallic Green Double Flare Glass Plugs:
Boston is a city full of history and life, which makes it no surprise that it is a great location to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The city’s NBA team is the Celtics, so need we say more? Boston’s most popular Celtic punk rock band, the Dropkick Murphy’s, comes back to Boston to perform in their hometown each year at the House of Blues to get the St. Patrick’s Day party started. There is also a parade with floats, Irish pipe and drum bands, Irish step dancers and a massive crowd.
We have paired the city of Boston’s celebrations with the Metallic Green Double Flare Glass Plugs. The black and green coloring matches the Celtics logo and the small black cracks in the metallic green foil resemble the pattern of clovers on the Celtic’s vest. Celebrate in style whether you’re near the Boston area or just want a funky green look. The cracked foil and added black coloring make these a standout pair of plugs that avoid a pinch!
Chicago, Illinois // Green Cat Eye Plugs:
From Boston, Massachusetts to Chicago, Illinois! The Chicago traditions are some of the most well-known St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. When the whole Chicago River is dyed emerald green, it’s a hard tradition for people to miss. The green river is dyed the morning of the parade and brings thousands of spectators. This makes Chicago a hot spot to celebrate the holiday. Check out the river then head over to one of the many Irish pubs in Chicago for good eats and plenty of beer.
To complement the emerald green river, we matched the Green Cat Eye Plugs with Chicago’s St. Patty’s celebrations. The coloring of these plugs and the river is similar. The chatoyancy effect the Green Cat Eye material even has a whitish appearance when the plugs move in the light, just like the river sparkles in the sun. The Green Cat Eye Plugs are a classic St. Patty’s Day accessory.
New Orleans, Louisiana // Green with Yellow and Pink Spiral Glass Plugs:
Next up, we’re headed down south to New Orleans, Louisiana. This city is lively and bustling year-round, but especially around St. Patrick’s Day. Everyone knows New Orleans is the home of Mardi Gras, which was at the beginning of March 2022. The celebration just keeps going as the city transitions from Mardi Gras to St. Patty’s Day. Why stop when you’re having that much fun? To continue the celebrations for St. Patrick’s Day, a giant block party is held in the French Quarter.
For the ultimate celebration, we have paired the Green with Yellow and Pink Spiral Glass Plugs with the city of New Orleans. These are a party in a plug! Between the vibrant green glass, shimmery swirl and added pink and yellow, these embody the New Orleans celebrations perfectly. Not to mention, they’re going to get plenty of use after the holiday too.
New York, New York // Rose Gold Stainless Steel Peacock Tunnels with CZ Gems:
Is anyone surprised that New York is one of the best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? We’re most definitely not. New York, New York is home to the St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Midtown Manhattan. The center of the New York events are held right in front of this architectural masterpiece. A parade goes up 5th Avenue and the city even has a bar crawl you can attend. No wonder it’s one of the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the world.
To match the detailed architecture of the building, we have paired New York’s celebrations with the Rose Gold Stainless Steel Peacock Tunnels. The CZ gems add a pop of green and the rose gold coloring is like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If you’re looking for a more subtle way to wear green on St. Patty’s Day, these are the way to go.
Philidelphia, Pennsylvania // Green Line Jasper Plugs:
Our final destination is the historic city of Philidelphia, Pennsylvania. The first ever documented St. Patrick’s Day parade was held here, making this the 250th year of celebrations. There are numerous bar crawls, live music and parties. They go big or go home for St. Patty’s Day in Philly!
We have paired the historic celebrations in Philadelphia with the Green Line Jasper Plugs. Just like the celebrations have been going on for years, this gorgeous stone has also been around for years. The green line jasper stone comes from a natural form of chalcedony and can have coloring ranging from dark olive green to lighter mint green. Since it’s unaltered from its original form, each pair is completely unique. No matter what color green you choose to wear on the holiday, these will complement it!
Green is a color that isn’t going out of style anytime soon. Treat yourself to feel confident with some green jewelry this St. Patrick’s Day. Any of these options are perfect to get your green in and we promise they will be worn many times after the celebrations are done. Who knows, maybe they’ll even bring you some good luck!
