IB’s wedding ring

04Jun10

I fully intended for us to take our time with planning this wedding, but we’re speeding through things so fast you’d think we had nothing better to do!

Last weekend, we stayed overnight in Lochgilphead (a mistake) before going to Tarbert on Monday to speak to a jeweller about IB’s wedding ring (a very good idea).

The jeweller we wanted to speak to are only open Mon-Fri, so we took advantage of the bank holiday to get something else crossed off our list and I’m so glad we did. We’ve bought IB a custom made Ogham wedding ring with an inscription (which we are keeping completely private) from Mahailia Jewellery – like this one.

Ogham is a medieval language once used in Ireland and some parts of Scotland (and other celtic regions) made up of a series of notches carved on the edges of stones. IB and I once visited a heritage park in Ireland where we learned about it. I love that the ring is part of both our Irish and Scottish heritages, plus it’s unique (I can’t imagine anyone else has used out inscription!).

I’m also toying with the idea of having a Ogham wedding ring made, with the same inscription and either an emerald or diamond. Decisions, decisions.

(Should also point out that the people who run Mahailia – didn’t get the names – are absolutely lovely! The pieces they create are gorgeous and they use ethical materials where possible. The work is so good that they don’t need to be pushy or overbearing to sell it!

  1. How lovely. I’ve never heard of Ogham, how special to have a secret inscription that only the two of you will know.
    I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay in Lochgilphead

    Oooh thats so unique; havent heard of Ogham before either.

    I would totally go for it too {with a diamond of course}, it is so lovely to know your ring is unique which is why im so glad I designed my own.

    Let us know what you decide.
