Our men's Celtic & Claddagh rings draw on traditional and unique Irish inspired designs.
Ireland is known for its rich history and incredible art, so it’s no surprise that Celtic jewelry is worn by men all over the world.
Not only are men’s Celtic rings uniquely beautiful, but men are often drawn to them because of the meaningful symbols incorporated into their designs. Each of these designs incorporates some of the symbols used throughout history by the Celtic people. These symbols can be interpreted in many different ways, so your Celtic wedding ring can carry a unique and deeply personal meaning.
The trinity knot is one of the most popular Celtic symbols that is often featured prominently on rings. Some people believe the three points of the knot symbolize the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, while others believe the trinity knot represents the union of mind, body, and spirit.
Another popular symbol found on Celtic jewelry is the Celtic cross. The Celtic cross is a traditional Christian cross that is mounted onto a circle. There are several interpretations as to what the Celtic cross stands for, but many believe it represents the circle of life or eternal love. Either way, this is a stunning symbol that adds deep meaning to Celtic rings.
Spirals are frequently incorporated into Celtic-inspired jewelry as well. There are many different spiral shapes that can be traced back to the Celtics, but in general, these shapes represent the flow of energy in nature and life.
One of the most famous Celtic rings is the Claddagh ring. These rings are popularly worn as engagement or wedding rings and feature three distinct symbols: a crown atop a heart held between two open hands. According to history, the Claddagh ring was created by an Irish goldsmith who was separated from his true love for many years. Upon their reunion, he made a ring that would represent the friendship, love, and loyalty they shared.
The legend and symbolism of this ring inspired many to wear their own Claddagh ring, and it quickly became a significant part of Irish culture. Although traditionally women wear the ring and pass it down from mother to daughter, today many men are taking up in this timeless symbol and incorporating the Claddagh into their ring.
Celtic rings are ideal for men who are not afraid to wear jewelry that tells a story. The designs of these rings are anything but ordinary and boring; they come in a variety of classic and alternative metals, such as cobalt, titanium, and even vibrant green cerakote. If you choose to wear a Celtic ring, be prepared to turn heads and start conversations!
