Owning a piece of jewellery that tells a story has a value of its own. For example, people often attribute value to items, not because they are of high value materially, but because they mean something particular to the buyer or recipient. Some tell a story of a heritage, a past; sometimes personal, sometimes more universal. The welsh heritage, it is a heritage of a nation and proud country. And rightly so, as the Celtic history that surrounds the Welsh culture is something to be celebrated. This is a thing of beauty and should be enjoyed, not just by the local natives, but by the whole of the Celtic nation.
That being said, the interlaced patterns that you often find on Celtic inspired welsh jewellery, are usually exclusive to welsh gift and trinket shops, including some vintage antique shops. The otherwise limited supply of Celtic items is the reason why the Huw Thomas Gallery have chosen to provide welsh Celtic items to a wider audience and customer base using the internet. The feel and design of these items are extremely appealing and complex. Celtic knots and Celtic items have a rich tradition that goes back hundreds of years. For example, love spoons were given to indicate the intention and gesture of love and commitment.
These designs used in such items as ear rings, necklaces, rings, chains, and bracelets, are always extremely popular, and the artistic nature that enveloped the Celtic cultures easily lend themselves to a decorative nature. You can find and use the Celtic design in many items and areas associated with design and personal adornment. This makes a Celtic piece of jewellery the perfect gift and present for anyone who wishes to own a piece of history, to own a memory of their visit, or just to own a part of wales. Celtic crosses are a well known type of Celtic emblem that people choose to wear for many different reasons.
The history of jewellery goes back to ancient culture. Each country or people would have developed their own symbols or heritage, to state, proclaim or identify who they were and which culture or tribe they came from, or who they chose to identify themselves with. Celtic knots or jewellery worn by welsh inhabitants would provide various insights into who the people where, and they can provide us with a feel for who the welsh nation are in our day and age.
The welsh countryside is so beautiful that it attracts a huge amount of visitors every year. When visiting this beautiful country, we can get a feel for the atmosphere and character of the land, of the people and of the rich history. To gain more of the feel and culture of this Celtic land, you may wish to own a part of the design, style and symbols of the Celtic nation of wales.
