The Significance Of Celtic Symbols In Today’s Bridal Jewelry…
For centuries, certain Celtic symbols and motifs have appeared on stone monuments, architecture, and art treasures.
The same symbols that have graced historic landmarks for generations now appear on modern bridal jewelry designs, lending a touch of ancient beauty to solitaire diamond rings, wedding bands, and pendants and earrings.
Today, popular choices include Irish Claddagh symbols (as engraved on the Claddagh engagement ring at left), Trinity Knot motifs, and warrior shield symbols. There are many different options available, depending on your taste and budget…
Honor The Past As You Begin A New Journey Together…
If you’re of Irish, Scottish, or Welsh heritage, you can connect with your ancestry by choosing a piece of Celtic jewelry for your wedding day. If both of you share Celtic backgrounds, you can even choose matching wedding bands that share the same meaningful symbols.
To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of lovely bridal jewelry that is crafted by hand by the master artisans of Ireland. Each piece (such as the stunning sapphire Celtic engagement ring at left) is created using the finest precious metals and gemstones, and each design is stamped (assayed) at Dublin Castle.
We’ve also added in some fascinating information about the meanings of the symbols on each piece, so that you can understand the role of each design in Celtic history and culture.
Highlight A Gorgeous Wedding Dress With A Little Touch Of Ireland!
Sometimes, adding individuality to your wedding outfit can make it really special! If you’re proud to be of Irish ancestry, why not add a subtle (but charming!) Shamrock pendant to your ensemble. This affordable silver pendant will add a romantic touch to your entire look – it features three heart-shaped “leaves”, accented with CZ diamonds and emeralds that catch the light.
Saint Patrick used the shamrock to represent the Holy Trinity; each of its three segments illustrated the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He converted Pagans to Christ by showing them the way the sacred Trinity appeared all around them in the natural world…this tender plant has become synonymous with faith, spirituality, and Ireland itself…
Choose A Celtic Wedding Band Adorned With Symbols Of Strength And Protection
This gorgeous Celtic ladies’ wedding ring offers true authenticity: the expertly rendered warrior shield symbols on the 14k gold band first appeared on the Ardagh Chalice, an Irish war treasure that was discovered in the early nineteenth century.
The symbols found on this ring can be traced back to 800 A.D., when historians believe the Chalice (a gold, silver and bronze cup) was created.
Warrior shield symbols are believed to be symbols of protection, strength, and loyalty. Many couples enjoy choosing matching wedding bands featuring these symbols, as men and women both appreciate the beauty and meaning of these ancient motifs.

The versatility of these unique earrings will make them a good investment. You will find yourself wearing these pretty pieces again and again…and each wearing will remind you of your own wedding day.
Like all handcrafted Celtic jewelry designs, these earrings have a true heirloom quality; they are designed to be enjoyed for generations.
