About Celtic Wedding Bands
Before speaking about Celtic wedding bands, let us see who were the Celts, if they still exists today, and where did they live. The Celts were a people emerging in the nations of Western Europe, which lived there starting with the 6th century; the maximal Celtic expansion was reached in 275 BC.
Celtic wedding bands that are available today online and in stores are much better than those that existed several hundreds of years ago, and this, because jewelers today have the possibility of using all sorts of equipment to cut, polish and design jewelry, not like in the past, where their main tools were a piece of stone and probably several metallic items. However, even if they were not made by using a high-tech equipment (like jewelers do today), Celtic wedding bands that were discovered by archaeologists are much more expensive than those who are sold today, and this, because they exist on this planet for several hundreds of years.
Celtic wedding bands can be recognized from other bands, thanks to the design they have; most of them feature Celtic symbols, such as the Celtic knot and cross. Most of the Celtic bands available today do not feature precious stones, such as diamonds, not even those created for ladies. Instead, they amaze their potential customers through their design, which is in some cases extremely complicated; in fact, to design Celtic wedding bands, jewelers today use their computers and also lasers. Obviously, in the past, no jeweler was able of such precision when cutting and polishing rings, bracelets, necklaces, pendants inhabitants and jewelry. And one more thing: the most popular metals from which Celtic wedding bands are made are tungsten carbide, titanium and platinum, not gold or silver, like it happens with most wedding bands.
