Meaning of Design
The Celtic Warrior: design is inspired by one of the finest known works of Celtic art, thought to have been owned by a high status Celtic Warrior King, the “Ardagh Chalice” made in the 9th century AD. Celtic Warriors were known to have been the most fierce in the ancient world, conquering Rome in 390 BC under the command of the Celtic Warrior King Brennus. An tale of the Celts comes from an account about an embassy of Celts from the Adriatic that caught up with Alexander the Great in 335 B.C. Apparently, the great man was impressed by their fearlessness, and he asked if there was anything the Celts truly feared. They replied, “Only that the sky should fall on our heads.” The Ardagh Chalice is a two-handled silver cup, decorated with silver, gold, and enamel, assembled from 354 separate pieces. The names of the apostles are incised in a frieze around the bowl, below a girdle bearing inset gold wirework panels of animals, birds, and Celtic designs. Techniques used include hammering, engraving, Lost-wax casting, filigree applique, cloisonne and enamelling. It was found in 1868, together with four brooches, by two young boys, digging in a potato field on the south-western side of an ancient Celtic fortified dwelling know as a “rath” (ring fort), in County Limerick, Ireland. It had a golden cup within it, and four ornate brooches. Buried without the least protection as they were, the pieces must have been interred in a hurry, probably temporarily, as the warrior intended to return for them at a later time after a battle.

How to Find Your Ring Size
Finding your ring size is very simple. For the most accuracy, measure the inside diameter of an existing ring (worn on the same hand and finger), and then find that measurement on the Ring Sizing Chart. If you don’t have a ring to use, follow these easy steps:
Step 1: Cut a strip of paper long enough to fit around your finger
Step 2: Wrap the paper around your finger, just above the knuckle, and mark the point at which the two ends meet
Step 3: Measure the paper from mark to mark
Step 4: Find that measurement on the Ring Sizing Chart to locate your size
