The thistle represents overcoming adversity and difficult situations. It's a symbol of resilience. The thistle is renowned in Scotland where it is not only the country's national emblem but also the base of Scotland's ancient order of chivalry known as "The Order of the Thistle." Given the legend surrounding the Scottish thistle, the plant clearly connotes bravery, courage, and loyalty in the face of treachery. In Celtic regions, the thistle represents devotion, bravery, determination, and strength.
Every ring is made to order and in YOUR CUSTOM size. Please buy our refundable ring sizer (BEFORE ORDERING) as most rings cannot be resized because of the continuous knotwork: www.etsy.com/listing/937178260
Cast in solid sterling silver, these rings are made of 100% recycled metal. The finish in the photos uses Patina to make the design stand out. For a brighter look, select polish. For a more muted look, brushed. Please choose from the drop down.
All jewelry is made in the USA from recycled metal (better for the earth!) and set with lab-grown stones (contact us for a quote if you desire a natural stone). Each Celtic design is our own creation, from design to finish. Our small team creates each piece from scratch, and hand finish and polish each one. If you have a custom idea or request, contact us; we'd love to design it! or visit www.celticeternity.com for more items. We offer payment plans for designs over $400.
Most rings can be customized to your choice of metal (sterling silver, 10K, 14K and 18K golds, or platinum), stone (type, shape, size), band height for an extra fee.

If it's not based on one of our existing designs, you will NEED to send us a sketch of what you are looking for.
We will give you a quote and if you agree, begin working on your custom design. This can take 4-12 weeks. Once you approve the design, we will create a custom listing for purchase. Upon full payment, your ring will enter production which takes 4-6 weeks.
Our rings are made with lab-grown stones. These are REAL STONES (not fake cubic zirconia) and they are chemically identical to naturally occurring ones, but they are better for the earth because we can find them in a lab versus having to dig randomly in the soil.
We can make any ring in sterling silver, gold (10K, 14K, 18K, yellow, white, or rose) or platinum. We do not offer tungsten, steel, or titanium.
It is industry standard to recommend that fine jewelry be removed before interacting with water, lotion, or other chemicals. This will allow the ring's finish and patina to last as long as possible. That said, our rings are made of precious metals and water will not affect the structural integrity of the ring.
All our rings are made custom to your exact ordered size (we highly, highly suggest you purchase our refundable ring sizer). https://www.etsy.com/listing/93717826
For rings with stones or continuous knotwork (80% of our designs), we cannot resize the ring and you will need to purchase a brand new ring at 35% of the original cost to cover the labor required to make a new ring. Creating a new ring takes our standard 4-6 weeks. We only offer this discounted remake service once; if you order the incorrect size again, you will have to purchase the ring at full value. We know this is frustrating but we are a small business.
You must contact us within 3 days of receiving your ring to tell us if you need a resize. Original ring must be returned.
For purchases over $400, we offer a 2 payment layaway option.
For purchases over $800, we offer 2 or 4 payment layaway option.
For purchases over $1500, we offer 2, 4 or 6 layaway option.
We are flexible on finish dates, but we require rings to be paid in full before we begin working on them (rings take 4-6 weeks to create). Please complete all payments 3 months before any special dates, wedding, anniversary etc to allow enough time for production and rare shipping delays.
We suggest polished + patina for most rings.
Patina is a method of darkening metal through oxidation. This allows small details to stand out and gives the ring a beautiful contrast. Almost all our photos use patina.
Polish is the standard finish you see in high end jewelry - bright, shiny and very reflective.
Brushed is a matte finish recommended for those who are hard on their hands or do rough work. The surface will not be shiny so it hides any scuffs that might occur during wear. Be warned, this will look much duller than our polished finish.
Please see last image in listings for examples of the different finish styles.
Our rings are handmade and take 4-6 weeks to create from the time an order is placed, plus 3-10 days for USA shipping.
Please contact us BEFORE purchasing to see if the design you are interested in can be engraved. Rings with stones or cut-throughs cannot be engraved.
We are sorry, but we cannot tell you what the cost of import or custom fees will be. This is specific to your country and region. Please contact your local post office or government.
This estimator may be helpful. Please note, we are not affiliated with this site and are not liable for the import fees it estimates for you. It is just to give a helpful general idea.
Our rings are handmade and most take 5 weeks to craft. You can upgrade your shipping at checkout to a 2 day express option (USA)and add in the order notes the day of your wedding. We will try our best for requests that are within the 4-5 week mark, but we cannot make any guarantees. 2tone rings, platinum and rings with gemstones will take longer than solid wedding bands.
Upgrading your shipping option will decrease transit time but it does not mean production time will be decreased.
