celtic wedding bands
Today, I learned about how historically the Celtic people were master metalworkers. They were especially well known for some of the intricate designs that they applied to items of jewelry. I saw photos of many examples of celtic wedding bands. And I must admit that the pieces that I saw were indeed quite beautiful. I wonder how long the Celtic people have been involved in metal working. The wedding bands were especially interesting because they showed so much detail in a very small area, which I imagine would require great skill. Many of the wedding bands followed traditional conventions and were devoid of jewels of any kind. Although I think my husband and I have now decided against the idea, for a time we considered replacing our wedding bands with new, nicer looking rings. Our wedding bands are just that – plain, gold bands reflecting no designs whatsoever. One of the Celtic styles would be far more interesting and esthetically pleasing. However, the more we thought about it, the more we realized that the sentimental value was important as our current bands were what we exchanged at our wedding ceremony. But if we ever renew our vows, I will be sure to consider the Celtic styles.
