Meaning of Celtic Symbols
Many of the beautiful designs on each Celtic wedding ring are symbols of love, honesty and family. The Celtic wedding band of your choice is available in gold, white gold and some are even offered in Sterling silver. Whichever metal or finish you choose, your Celtic wedding ring will carry the Dublin Assay Office hallmark, as a sign of the high quality of the materials used.
From the Trinity Knot to the Newgrange Spirals, our collection depicts fine Irish art and history at its best. For centuries, Irish artisans have been perfecting their methods to design highly decorative, intricate jewelry pieces that capture the imagination. We hope you enjoy viewing our extensive collection of Celtic wedding rings; we've certainly enjoyed crafting them.
The Trinity Knot, a traditional Celtic wedding band. The meaning of the Trinity Knot is ambiguous. It is believed that Christians view the three cornered knot as a representation of the Holy Trinity. Each corner of the knot standing for the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Another, more basic belief is that the Trinity Knot stands for air, water and earth. Perhaps the Trinity Knot is expressing the cycle of life; birth, death and rebirth. Or even the Gods and Goddesses of Celtic lore. Whichever meaning you embrace, the Trinity Knot is a beautiful addition to your Celtic wedding band. Trinity Knot wedding rings, bearing this meaningful symbol, are available in gold, white gold and silver. There are solid and filigree styles suitable for both men and women.
Is your betrothed truly your soul mate? If so you might choose one of the Celtic wedding rings bearing the words Anam Cara. Although the meaning of this phrase is not an exact translation to the English use of the phrase soul mate, it is meaningful. Anam Cara translates as friend of my soul. What a lovely thought to present to your spouse as you exchange your wedding vows. A quick glance at your finger will be a daily reminder of the feelings you shared on your wedding day.
The Celtic wedding bands crafted by our jewelers often have Celtic or Gaelic names. The beautiful Dierdre is a diamond accented band with the Celtic spiral design displayed in the center of the band. Dierdre is a stunning ring and the name refers to the woman who was the most beautiful woman in all of Ireland. Dierdre was engaged to one man but in love with another. There is a gentleman’s version of this ring available, the Dalaigh. Most of the Celtic wedding bands you will find at Celtic-WeddingRings.com have complementary styles of rings for both men and women.
Celtic knots are considered a representation of endless love. The knot continues on, without a beginning or an end, just as your love will. The Celtic knot is incorporated into many of our wedding rings. The Caoimhe (pictured to the right) is a gorgeous yet simple style Celtic wedding band. The name is derived from Gaelic words meaning precious and beautiful. While the Caoimhe is a less extravagant ring than some of the others offered, it is lovely in its simplicity. This ring is available in platinum, although delivery will take longer if ordered in this precious metal.
Celtic-WeddingRings.com has a wide assortment of faith rings. Many of these rings consist of some of the traditional Celtic symbols as well as the Ogham alphabet. Faith rings are perfect as a wedding band for both men and women. They are commonly used to express commitment to another. Faith rings are not solely for wedding ceremonies. They can be a sign of faith in your love and relationship and are sometimes given as a commitment ring. The Claddagh is a well-known example of a faith ring.
The Celtic triple spiral, found at the ancient temple, or passage tomb of Newgrange is another well-known ancient symbol. Although the symbolism is not fully known, there is much speculation about the meaning of this Celtic glyph that is believed to be more than 5,000 years old. Like many things Celtic there seems to be some belief in the symbolism of three. The trinity, the three realms and even the three trimesters of pregnancy are possible explanations for the design. The Cael Newgrange wedding ring is emblazoned with the lovely triple spiral. For a unique look this ring is available with an oxidized silver finish or the more usual gold or white gold.
