Choosing that special someone to spend the rest of your life with is a huge decision for anyone and enshrining that love with the symbolism of a wedding band is an equally critical decision. For many it is both a financially and emotionally huge investment, and so it is crucial to do one’s research, seek advice and ultimately make the right choice. So why not add a little Celtic symbolism and colour to your wedding day with a hand crafted wedding ring from Ireland?
For instance, the width, materials used and embellishments all need to be taken into consideration and researched extensively. An important first choice is that of the material to be used, you can choose silver, yellow or white gold or you prefer to opt for a more adornment look over a more plain pattern there are hundreds of different variations of stunning Celtic wedding bands available.
Some of the finest Celtic wedding bands exhibiting the great craftsmanship are created and forged in Ireland, adorned with ancient symbols of love and friendship and made to order just for you. These exquisite pieces of Celtic jewelry are often adorned with distinctive Celtic symbols and iconography such as the Celtic knot, Trinity knot, Triskele weave and, of course, the iconic Claddagh.
The Celtic knot and Celtic closed knot remain one of the most popular form of Celtic wedding bands. The continuously intertwining knot represents everlasting love and the enshrinement of commitment and the finely woven knots remain immensely popular. The Trinity knot is a timeless design and iconic in Ireland and all over the world. It symbolizes spiritual growth, eternal life and the anticipation of never ending love… encapsulating the theme that love has no beginning and no end!
The Triskele remains one of the iconic Celtic symbols and can be found on stones located on or near ancient Celtic sites. It is understood that the Celts believed that the Triskele was a symbol of fertility or a symbol of rebirth. These spirals are very evocative as they are found at the entrance stone at Newgrange, Ireland’s most popular visitor attraction.
