Being from Nova Scotia, there is a very strong Gaelic / Celtic influence. In the upper highlands of Cape Breton there are some good hearty names like Macintosh, McInnes and MacDonald. There are all names from the “old Country”. When I was asked by Glencara if I would like to review their traditional Irish jewellery, I instantly thought of my provincial brothers and sisters up in the highlands.
Glencara carries all traditional Irish Jewellery such as the classic Claddagh Rings. These rings are unique, distinct and the classic wedding/”love” ring for those of Irish decent. I love culture and I am completely fascinated that a country has the ability to create something so special for a marriage that most descendants (even those that on longer live in the old country) are still wearing these rings. These rings were originally created in the 1600’s.
I have a girl friend that I went to school with who is originally from Cape Breton, she is the one who introduced me to these rings as a small child. Since that time I have seen quite a few people wear these rings as wedding rings or just for a special ring to wear to represent their heritage.
Glencara, has some magnificent prices for their traditional Irish rings, the Claddagn rings are available in both yellow and white gold and start at only $39.99.
