The luckiest day of the year - St Patrick's Day - is just around the corner!
The masses will be celebrating with corned beef, cabbage, Guinness, and endless smiles. Whatever your plans - why not order a Celtic-inspired ring so you can carry the Irish spirit with you all year.
Celtic history and culture intertwined with religious beliefs shaped the intricate patterns commonly seen in Celtic jewellery today. The distinctive geometric styles, with their rich histories, each tell a story.
(Speaking of stories, learn more about the history of the word 'Celtic' and why it's pronounced the way it is in this Mental Floss article)
Meaningful Celtic Patterns
The designs used in Celtic artwork and jewellery might look to be almost random at times. But every aspect of the geometric patterns is full of meaning.
The Celtic Love Knot
The Celtic Oval Knot, also known as the Celtic Love Knot, is one of the oldest and simplest Celtic designs. It's rumoured to go all the way back to 2,500 BCE.
Celts exchanged these knots on their wedding day, just as we do today with rings. The design represents the enduring love and connection between two people. (Awww!)

Arguably the most recognizable Celtic symbol, the Trinity Knot (also known as the Triquetra) is said to symbolize the Holy Trinity.
Pre-Christianity, the symbol was said to represent the three stages of a woman's life: The Maiden, The Mother, and The Crone. It makes a powerful statement about female empowerment and connection to the moon.
The Morrigan Titanium Ring is very dainty, but it's made from aircraft-grade Titanium so it's also very durable.
The Infinity Symbol
The mathematical concept of infinity is a relatively new discovery when compared to the rich history of the spiritual concept of infinity.
Historically, circles and Celtic knots have been seen to represent the 'endless' relationship between humans and the world around us. It's little wonder the symbol has maintained its meaning and popularity throughout the ages.
The Fairy Titanium Ring is a Celtic-inspired ring that represents infinity. More complex than the single infinity symbol jewellery, this pattern is as intricate as it is delicate.
