Cherry and Oak wood rings symbolic of ancient Irish and British trees

In June of 2007, Louise and Arran of Ireland designed these lovely cherry wood rings with oak bands. Their rings are 10 and 6mm wide with gentle hidden tapers.
Louise and Arran decided to use cherry and oak because both are ancient native trees to Ireland and Britain, and they liked their symbolic meanings of strength and love.

"We were delighted to discover that as well as being very beautiful the rings have a great warm feel to them - unlike the coldness of metal! Many, many thanks Louise & Arran, Ireland"

Arran & I had a wonderful weddding in August - I have attached some pictures from the registry office - where the ring exchange took place and from a stone circle where we performed a handfasting ceremony. The rings are still fantasic and have darkened considerably since we started wearing them, which makes them even more beautiful . All the best and thanks again. Louise and Arran
