What is the History behind Celtic rings?
Celtic rings are a stylish addition to your jewelry box, and are full of Celtic symbolism. They have been part of Ireland’s Celtic heritage since the age of the Celts – this was around 500 BC! However, it wasn’t until 600 AD when Celtic jewelry started to surface and become more popular. The Christian influence in the country led to a new style of Celtic art.
The Trinity Knot Ring is generally the ring people associate with Celtic rings, but this is just one of many designs. These rings inspire a kind of Celtic mysticism from the Emerald Isle that people find irresistible.
What do Celtic Rings Mean?
Rings featuring Celtic symbols are well-known around the world, and usually consist of a series of never-ending knots in the ring design. These Celtic knots are symbolic of eternity, true love and infinity. The Celtic designs form beautiful rings that have become synonymous with Ireland. The Celtic Trinity Knot design is one of the most iconic celtic symbols, and features in many of our Celtic knot rings at Irish Jewelry Craft. Also known as the Triquetra, it symbolizes the Holy Trinity – The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. It has also been known to represent the earth, sea and sky, as well as life, death and rebirth.
Who Wears Celtic Rings?
Celtic knot rings are often worn as a way to respect Irish heritage, but they may be worn to indicate anything from engagement to love. The interlace of the knot-work is commonly interpreted to symbolize infinite love, so they are a perfect choice for ladies engagement rings or wedding rings. If you are looking for a Celtic engagement ring, we at Irish Jewelry Craft, offer knot rings with a stunning diamond as the centerpiece. However, they aren’t exclusively for women. There are also heavier, thicker set rings featuring Celtic knotwork, designed to better suit gents hands. The celtic symbols are full of meaning, and open to interpretation. Some wear Celtic jewelry as a symbol of their faith. There are no set rules for the wearer of a Celtic knot ring.
