Whether you are of Celtic descent or simply appreciate the rich history and tradition of the Celtic people, this ring is a true masterpiece that can be cherished for generations to come.

Satisfyingly weighty, with its unique design and exquisite craftsmanship, this band is the perfect choice for couples who want to add a touch of elegance and meaning to their special day. 6.3mm wide, it is a UK size P1/2. Due to the continuous pattern, I do not recommend sizing, thus I consider it serendipitous if you have landed here, looking for a Celtic wedding band in a size P1/2 in Platinum. This is certainly meant for you!

Platinum starts off shiny when new and develops a patina with normal wear. The patina is essentially composed of many tiny scratches on the metal and will give the metal a more matte appearance.

Celtic refers to a tribe of people from the bronze age that was spread over Europe. Their artefacts are of typical, almost medieval, design and there was great interest in this style in the 19th century as a Celtic revival, especially by the artists of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Celtic knot designs, or Icovellavna, date all the way back to the Roman Empire and have been a popular design ever since. Celtic knots are a variety of knots and stylized graphical representations of knots used for decoration used extensively in the Celtic style of Insular art. Most are endless knots, and many are varieties of basket weave knots. The use of interlace patterns had its origins in the late Roman Empire. Interesting developments in the artistic use of interlaced knot patterns are found in Byzantine architecture and book illumination, Coptic art, Celtic art, Islamic art, Kievan Russian book illumination, Ethiopian art, and European architecture and book illumination. These designs found their way into early Christian manuscripts and artwork with the addition of depictions from life, such as animals, plants and even humans. A fragment of a Gospel Book, now in the Durham Cathedral library and created in northern Britain in the 7th century, contains the earliest example of true knotted designs in the Celtic manner. The style is most commonly associated with the Celtic lands, but it was also practised extensively in England and was exported to Europe by Irish and Northumbrian monastic activities on the continent. In modern times, Celtic art is popularly thought of in terms of national identity and therefore specifically Irish, Scottish or Welsh.
