Whats so special about celtic diamond rings?
You have to love the Irish!
They gave us celtic diamond rings & they don’t stray far from their traditions; commendable in this day and age.
The most well known of the various celtic ring is the Claddagh ring which is a friendship ring.
The ring originated from the village of Claddagh in Ireland thus the name.
Its very unique and specific design features two hands holding a heart which is surrounded by a crown.
The hands symbolize friendship, the heart love and loyalty in the crown.
The claddagh ring can also be used as an engagement ring. When used as as a wedding ring, it is said to be the basis of a strong marriage (don’t quote me on this)!
Celtic diamond rings are becoming quite popular with celtic knotwork being at the forefront.
This knot work has very beautifully intricate ribbon patterns. The rich Irish traditions are full of sentiment especially when it comes to weddings.
The interwoven ribbons are used at weddings where they have special significance that of the intertwined lives of the couple coming together in marriage.
You can decide to buy your Celtic ring of the shelf or have a unique one made for you.
The diamond diamond ring setting will be left to you depending on your budget and preference.
You can choose between gold, platinum or silver.
The many styles of celtic diamond rings lend themselves to blending in your own style be they as engagement rings or wedding rings.
Stones can be added as a center piece, inter spaced in the ribbons or round the ring.
The width of the celtic ring also matters.
If you have a small stone say 0.5 carat or smaller, you do not want too wide a width as the designs on the ring will overshadow the stone.
However if your stone is a 1 carat diamond and above, your band should be wider to show off the ribbon patterns to full effect.
If you have Irish relatives or you got a Celtic Ring as a gift, you can personalise it by engraving your names on the back or inside of the ring.
If it doesn’t fit, have it re-sized and you are good to go.
Finally, if you decide to wear a celtic diamond ring on the big day, consider having Irish music played at your reception or even better, get an Irish band to play live to make it a truly memorable day…
