Celtic promise rings are given to show that one is spoken for. They are a form of pre-wedding engagement or to show deep love for a person. Celtic designs are beautiful and deeply rooted in tradition. They are also very symbolic, so they are commonly used as promise rings.

Types of Celtic Promise Rings

There are a few different designs to choose from for Celtic promise rings. Common designs include interlace and Claddagh. You can also choose from various materials for your promise ring, depending on how much you are willing to spend and your taste in jewelry. Gold and silver are the two most popular choices for Celtic rings and some will add diamonds to their rings as well.

Celtic designs are very impressive and symbolic. The designs and their meanings have been preserved for thousands of years. Interlace is a common type of design that may be found on a promise ring. Interlace is also known as "knotwork." Knotwork uses a series of interlacing knots in a continuous design. The continuous design reflects feeling of never-ending love for a person.

Claddagh rings are popular for Celtic promise rings. The design on these rings shows deep feelings of love, friendship, and loyalty. If worn as a decoration, they should be placed on the right hand with the heart symbol facing outward. By wearing a Claddagh ring on the left hand, with the heart inward, you will show that you are spoken for.
