This stunning collection of Irish wedding rings each features the Old Irish Ogham word for Faith beautifully inscribed on it. This ancient script is the oldest form of recorded Irish written language. It was thought to have been invented at some point between the 1st and 4th centuries. The oldest surviving examples come from the 4th century, but it is thought that the script could have been used prior to that time, but written on perishable materials which would not survive until present day.
It is this ancient language that became the inspiration for a new line of Irish wedding bands – the Faith Collection. Each of these beautiful bands is inscribed with the word ‘Faith’ in Ogham script. There are then six different styles of wedding band to choose from – each featuring certain Irish and Celtic symbology. Choices include Trinity knots, Claddaghs, Celtic Knot, Le Cheile, Celtic Cross, and Newgrange symbols. The full line can be seen in our Ogham Faith Wedding Bands category.
The inspiration behind the use of the word ‘Faith’ is that we all have different backgrounds and experiences. This often leads to differing religions and belief structures. However, the one thing that we all generally have in common is a belief or faith in something. It might be faith in a higher power, faith in loved ones, faith in each other, or faith in knowing that we can indeed reach our dreams.
These Irish wedding rings are available in a wide variety of precious metal types from oxidized sterling silver to 14K white or yellow gold. They are also available in two-tone gold for a stunning presentation. Each ring is comfort-fit, and the rings are unisex – suitable for men and women.
