About Us

The first Banyan Tree shop was opened in the seaside town of Dalkey in 2012, tucked away in The Tramyard, just off the main street. In 2015 we moved to our current location in The Crescent, Monkstown, South County Dublin. Owned and run by Ruth Hearns, Banyan Tree is a treasure trove of beautiful, handmade jewellery and gifts from near and far. Your senses will be set alight when you enter the shop by the fragrance from the Dalkey Aromatics range of candles, colourful Mosaic Lamps and the stunning hand sewn Vintage Indian Quilts, not to mention the unique and original jewellery.

Ruth has followed her passion for stylish, timeless pieces of jewellery. She designs many of the pieces herself as well as stocking local designers and sourcing from around the globe to offer you a very special range. “I love to travel and experience other cultures and find things that make my heart sing! Surrounding myself with beauty makes my day to day job a pleasure.”

In 2010 Ruth and her family took a year out to go travelling around South East Asia and Australia. They based themselves on an island in the Gulf of Thailand and it was during this year that the idea for Banyan Tree was born.

She is dedicated to helping her customers find exactly what they are looking for in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
