All About Celtic Engagement Rings

Aug 17, 2007
Among engagement rings, the Celtic engagement rings are the ones laced with so much meaning.

Publicly, a Celtic engagement ring declares the couple's promise to make a new life together and privately the design of Celtic engagement ring can contain many intimate elements meaningful to the couple's lives through the intricate metalwork, engravings or gemstones.

Many individuals are attracted to the Celtic engagement ring art due to its elaborately knotted designs where the knots do not have any beginning as well as no end.

The Celtic engagement ring gives meaning literal to the famous phrase "tie the knot" as the rings are representations of infinity as well as eternal love when crafted unto a Celtic engagement diamond.

Types of Celtic engagement rings:

1. The lover's knot. This consists of two interconnected symbols of infinity and is known to symbolize two people united as one.

Many Celtic wedding bands and rings incorporate the "lover's knot" in their pattern of design. The traditional Celtic design engagement rings usually illustrate the Heron and Creyr, on each side.

Animals, for the Celts were the gods' messengers. Every animal was associated to the earth's natural cycle. Creyr is their creator of "life" and the carrier of babes, as the stork is to the Americans.

2. The Celtic cross. Versions of the Celtic cross differ depending upon the legend, although a common version is founded on the efforts of the Celtic monks' to include Christianity to pagan beliefs.

The cross symbolizes God's eternal love, revealed through the sacrifice of Christ on the "cross".
Celtic crosses possess a circular sign, whereby the cross part of the "crucifix" is enclosed. The halo, as it called, is believed to represent of God's angelic quality thru His endless love for His people.

3. Celtic bands. These vary in intricacy and thickness. A simple Celtic band actually may craft a "metal knot" from thin gold strands, while elaborate Celtic designs are etched or engraved onto wider bands.

Celtic bands can include gemstones, specifically emeralds or diamonds inset unto the metal, although elevated settings are rare.

4. Claddagh rings. These are the most well known and popular Celtic ring types and are a sign of love and friendship.

Because every Celtic ring design possesses a distinct meaning, jewelers often will customize the engagement ring so to include the Celtic symbols and knots that you desire.

The preferences of particular knots hold special importance to the couple, like an heirloom design or family pattern or the designs can simply be matching aesthetic favorites.

Because the Celtic rings' intricacy a made to order engagement ring are more expensive compared to readily available rings, especially if it entails entirely unique knots and patterns.

Jewelers usually choose to create Celtic engagement rings from titanium metal lined with silver or gold. Traditionally, these rings are made from silver or gold only, however, due to their intricate designs and delicate nature of silver and gold, titanium is used today as the base for durability.

Purchase your Celtic engagement ring early

When shopping for your Celtic engagement ring, it is significant to start looking as early as possible, so that if you can not find one that you desire, you can have one custom made which takes a longer time to do.

Furthermore, having your Celtic engagement ring properly sized as well as engraving with your names will take time.
Caring for your Celtic ring

Any engagement ring should be cared for meticulously, however Celtic engagement rings needs special handling and care to guarantee that they remain dazzling for years.

Before selecting a cleansing solution, evaluate first what type of metal is your ring and which choices are best for different types of metals as well as gemstones, because the solution that cleans easily one metal can mistakenly damage another.

Celtic engagement rings necessitate more frequent cleansing because of its design. Use a very soft "bristle brush" for keeping grime and dirt from building up in its tiny scrollwork pattern.

As highly symbolic and detailed rings, Celtic engagement rings are a great choice for couples to announce their engagement as well as the knots in the ring will linger on to be a tangible remembrance of how your love and lives are intertwined all through the years and for years to come.
