The symbolism within Celtic design amongst the druids was not limited to the representation of eternity in rings and plait-work.
Different stones were said to signify different personalities, depending on the month of birth. Wedding rings may have been inset with precious gems according to the bride or groom’s birthday – pearls for June, peridot for August and aquamarine for March – or for the date of the wedding itself.
Not only do the knot-work and precious gems have astrological significance, but the metal – platinum - also comes from the stars. It is said to represent Venus and the qualities that this god embodied such as wealth, power, love and strength.
Platinum laced meteorites first landed on Earth, in North America, two billion years ago when life on this planet was little more than simple bacteria. Since mankind evolved, this precious element has been mined sporadically throughout history. Used by the Ancient Egyptians, Incas, Spanish conquistadores and Pope Pius VI, platinum has made its presence known throughout the ages – living up to the characteristics of wealth, love, power and strength that it is said to embody.
