Celtic Treasures of the Ages
Celtic jewelry is a breath taking treasure,
which has been forged within the romantic mists of time; where its mythological history and timeless tales of
legend, love loyalty and friendship further enrich its natural beauty.
Celtic jewelry provides us with a shimmering fusion of Celtic designs and symbols. Skillfully
brought together by a passion for artistic creativity and the skills of old.
For thousands of years the Celtic culture has intermingled with its neighbours. The art and
culture of the Persians the Turkish, Greek and the Roman Empire to name a few.
These peoples have interwoven the traditional Celtic swirl and spiral patterns into their own
designs. Each has added their own unique mystical properties and flowing movements to their own jewelry and
Celtic jewelry has enjoyed a massive resurgence around the globe in recent times. Anybody who
is knowledgeable in style knows that jewelry is no longer just about design.
Its more about wearing a piece of culture. A work of art that can be passed down through the
generations as a reminder of who we are.
The most endearing part of the process of receiving, giving or simply wearing a piece of
Celtic jewelry is the fact that every single item has it's own story to tell. Whether it be about love or
enchantment, or the fact it was the jewelry of one of the worlds bravest warrior races.

Review by ArtiCulture
ring is a traditional Irish ring given in friendship or worn as a wedding
ring. The design and customs associated with it originated in the
Irish fishing village of Claddagh, located just outside the old walls
of the city of Galway. The ring was first produced
in the 17th century during the reign of Queen Mary
II, though elements of the design are much older.
For more information go to The Claddagh Page.
Men's Celtic Jewelry
The joy of Celtic jewelry is its range that is perfect for all genders. However, it is fair to
say that finding jewelry for a man can be quite difficult, especially on the web. In my mind the reason for
this is that generally men's jewelry is quite boring.
Not however with Celtic jewelry. A man can wear the magical designs and he also has a story to
tell his friends about the jewelry piece.
What better gift can you give a man than that of a story to tell of warrior blood lines and
ancient history. Additionally, it is a piece of jewelry that is a part of these historic times.
