Where can I get a Celtic wedding ring online?

A Celtic wedding band is a terrific way to celebrate your heritage during your special day. Not only is a Celtic wedding band unique and stylish, but it's also steeped in tradition. Because of this rich tradition, there's a lot to know about these wedding bands. This article provides you with an overview on Celtic wedding rings available online.

Celtic wedding rings

The most popular Celtic wedding band is the Claddagh wedding ring. This ring has a pair of hands embracing a crowned heart. The hands signify friendship, the heart signifies love, while the crown symbolises loyalty. This type of ring can be worn before getting married, on the right hand with the crown facing out symbolising that the wearer's heart is available. Once married, the wedding ring is switched to the left hand, with the crown facing in, representing that the wearer's heart has been taken. This type of ring might be right for you, if you like the symbolism of the heart and the crown, and enjoy the design of the next most popular Celtic wedding band, which is known as the Celtic knot. The Celtic knot features the many twists and weaves that symbolise the unending love that keep two people together. It also symbolises their connection through marriage and life. This type of ring might be for you, if you enjoy the design of the Celtic knot, and appreciate the symbolism of unity that the knot represents. Another popular Celtic ladies' wedding rings is the Gaelic wedding band. The Gealltanas Siorai is a collection of rings with Gaelic sayings inscribed. Each inscription translates to a specific sentiment that truly romanticises the Celtic tradition. These sayings are: Mo anam cara (my soul mate), gra go deo (love forever), gra dilseacht cairdeas (love loyalty friendship), gra geal mo chroi (bright love of my heart). If you like the romanticism of the Gaelic language, you might like the Celtic wedding ring. Similar to the Celtic Knot is the Trinity knot. It has a similar design of an interlocking weave and is often associated with the Holy Trinity and with eternal love. This would be a great wedding band, if you want to include some Christian symbolism into your Celtic wedding band. Finally, the Ogham wedding band has a design written in an ancient script that says "Love forever". This ring is slightly different, and provides quite a unique twist from the typical Celtic wedding bands, but still has a strong Celtic meaning.
