engagement2Last year we featured this article and here at Shanore, we’d like to take this opportunity to reiterate finding the perfect Celtic engagement ring for your wedding day.Every bride-to-be dreams of the perfect engagement ring. Our modern yet classic stunning Celtic engagement rings.

These diamond rings combine Celtic ancient symbols with modern details and craftsmanship, creating a look that is authentic, unique, and truly second to none…
The best Celtic engagement rings are handcrafted in Ireland and stamped at the Assay Office in Dublin Castle. With Shanore, you can peruse all manner of styles; from delicate Trinity Knot solitaire rings, to beautiful Irish Claddagh Celtic engagement rings with heart-shaped diamond centers. For today’s bride-to-be, a Celtic engagement ring can be a wonderful way to connect with the past.

The symbols on today’s rings vary, but all of them hold some special meaning. For example, the Trinity Knots that are such a popular motif on modern Celtic engagement rings have three interlocking segments – each part of the Trinity Knot represents the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This motif has illustrated faith, love and eternity since the sixth century, when artisans began to use it on ancient manuscripts, art treasures, and metal work. These symbols are an example of the style known as interlace, or knot work.
Famous examples of interlace appear on the colorful, vibrant pages of the Irish Book of Kells, which illustrates the four books of the Gospel.

Another common motif on today’s Celtic engagement rings is the Claddagh symbol, which is comprised of a crowned heart-and-hands design. The crowned heart symbolizes loyalty in love, and hearkens back to the days when citizens swore loyalty to the King or Queen. The tiny hands that hold the pretty crowned heart in place are meant to illustrate the “giving of the heart”. This touching and romantic motif is Irish in origin, and the first Celtic Claddagh ring was created as a token of affection and everlasting love.

Today, many brides and grooms exchange Claddagh Rings on their wedding day, instead of plain gold bands. For today’s bride, choosing a Claddagh Celtic engagement ring, and a co-ordinating gold Celtic Claddagh ring for the groom, can be a wonderful way to bring a touch of classical Irish romance to a wedding ceremony.There is a host of historical symbolism and significance in every genuine Celtic engagement ring.

If you’re looking for a special ring that really embodies the past, the present, and all of your hopes for the future, you may find a Celtic design is perfect for you. The mysterious, mystical, and romantic motifs of the Celtic culture remain resonant and beautiful in today’s world…

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website. It appears like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thanks

  2. I have been looking for a three tier Celtic Engagement Ring. Ring was very delicate had a man’s glove and a woman’s glove and when you would push them aside the heart was in the center. It was just beautiful belonging to my mother given to her by my father via grandfather, Irish/Scottish… Any way, someone stole the ring from my mother. I have never forgotten that ring as I was in love with the love it represented.

  3. In relation to the first comment, I am experiencing no problems with the website. I think it might be an old version of internet explorer you are using – many websites appear different on IE6 but for me, the site looks great. In relation to the article, I have found Celtic rings for men being very popular this year (and last year) with many couples wanting to have a Celtic piece of jewellery, especially if they are Irish living abroad.
