Wedding Band Range - Gráinne Wedding Collection

Our unique ‘Gráinne Wedding Collection’ includes a large range of Celtic wedding bands in both Sterling Silver and a combination of White, Rose and Yellow Gold.

The ‘Gráinne Wedding Collection’ is named after the ‘Pirate Queen of Connaught’ Gráinne Ni Mháille - Grace O Malley, or as she is more commonly known, Gránuaile. As the ‘Pirate Queen’, Gráinne is an important figure in Irish Folklore and Heritage and is documented to have hailed from the West Coast of Ireland on the beautiful Clare Island.

This Celtic heritage is reflected in the design of each wedding band; a symbol of the timeless bond which unites two people on their special day.


History of the Claddagh

In the early 16th century an Irish man by the name of Richard Joyce was fishing off the coast of Galway a week before he was to be married when his currach (boat) capsized. Richard was captured by pirates, taken to West Africa and sold into slavery to a Moorish goldsmith.

Years passed and Richard escaped captivity and returned home to Ireland to find that the girl he loved had never married. Richard shaped a unique ring for the girl he left behind. The ring was fashioned of three symbols; the hands signifying Friendship, holding a heart signifying love, topped with a crown for loyalty. Richard and his love married and settled in the village of Claddagh.

The village no longer exists but since those early days the Claddagh ring has been worn as a sign of Love, Loyalty and Friendship.

Mo Anam Cara is the Gaelic for Soul Mate.
