In 1868, two boys digging in a field were to uncover one of Ireland’s greatest treasures, the Ardagh Chalice. On a par with the Book of Kells, it is one of the finest pieces of 8th century metalwork to be found anywhere. The Chalice was made from 354 individual pieces and is currently on display at the National Museum of Ireland, which is its permanent home.
It was the Ardagh Chalice that inspired the Celtic Warrior Wedding Band collection. These beautiful Celtic wedding bands include many of the same designs and details as the Ardagh Chalice, including the shield symbols form the band around the chalice. These beautiful wedding bands are available in a variety of widths, and a full range of men’s and women’s sizes. Metal types include sterling silver, 10K gold, 14K yellow and white gold, and 18K yellow and white gold. The 14K and 18K ranges also include two-tone gold pieces.
