“I want it all and I want it delivered”
A Passion for Brands

My Shining Armour is the brainchild of Irish gal, Nicki Hoyne. For years the idea niggled at her to start her own business that would discover the most cutting edge accessories and gifts, and to curate them into an online treasure trove. In 2013 she took the leap to become an entrepreneur and was born!

My Shining Armour is a combination of our love of accessories, tech and the creative side of fashion. Every time you visit, you’ll enjoy the excitement of discovering something new. We hope you adore our collection of beautiful things!

Style & Quality

The name, My Shining Armour was inspired by the beautiful medieval city of Kilkenny, Ireland and Nicki’s ethos to be her own hero. It is born from a passion for all things unique and eye-catching. Each piece has been handpicked for you for its style and quality. Nothing goes in the collection that is not absolutely adored.

I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I have done choosing it for you.

Nicki :)
